Regardless of what a well drilling estimate might indicate, you will not know the real cost of drilling a well in British Columbia until you either hit water water or pull out because you have drilled a dry hole!

When estimating the cost to drill a well in BC you should first determine if your local well driller is prepared to Guarantee Water?  If not, you might want to ask, “Why not?”

Many property owners think they’re drilling for water when hiring a BC well drilling contractor but may quickly discover (usually a little to late) that their property was not drilled for water… it was drilled for dollars $$$.  Drilling is just that… it’s drilling and it often has little to nothing to do with water and you’re paying by the foot!  A drilling guarantee is important!

When drilling for water a  well drilling guarantee can greatly reduce the cost of drilling a well by tens of thousands of dollars if you drill a dry well in many areas of BC.

Without a drilling guarantee there’s always a risk of drilling two… three or even more dry wells prior to hitting water which will tremendously increase the true cost of drilling a well in many areas of the province!

Drilling for water in many areas of BC is a challenge since drilling for water can be a hit & miss process.  When deciding to drill a well, most of us will just hop on Google and search “water well drilling near me,”  we call and ask, “what is cost to drill a well?”  We’re not doing ourselves a favor when the first question we ask a well drilling contractor is, “How much per foot do you charge to drill a well?!”  

Lets talk about the real potential cost of drilling a well… you will be informed that if a drilling company drills a dry hole (a non-producer), you’re on the hook to pay the $35.00 – $60.00 per foot plus all additional well drilling costs as estimated.  Example: Let’s say a dry well is drilled through 500′ of bedrock, that portion alone could total $18,000 or more… there will be others costs.  Your final dry well invoice in this case will exceed $20,000.

Once you have yourself in that situation does the cost per foot to drill a well really matter?  Heck NO!

“We Guarantee Water” in bedrock… if we pull out of a dry hole you’ll not charge you for the bedrock portion of the project in many areas of BC and… we put it in writing, if you’re paying a fixed price to a well drilling contractor you should ALWAYS ask if they guarantee water… if not, why?

Cost of Drilling a Well in BC

Groundwater provides drinking water for more than one-quarter of British Columbia residents, accounting for approximately 9% of the Province’s total water consumption.

But if you’re not on municipal water, “dry well” may well be the two most dreaded words you’ll ever hear as a property owner. With thousands—or tens of thousands—of dollars spent drilling wells at $60/ft or more, failure to find water can put your family and livelihood at risk and decimate your property value.
