Has anyone installed their own submersible well pump?  It doesn't look that difficult, but maybe I'm missing something. 

I've gotten two bids that were around $5000 for the work.  By my estimates, the materials would cost around $2500.  A labor charge of $2500 seems a little steep to me for that work.

Jon,    The Question you asked depends what work is being performed. If you are just putting in a new pump that is a great deal of money. Here in New Jersey some locales have regulations stating that you must also install new pvc pipe from pump to house when replacing the submersible pump. You must also have the electrical inspected to be sure it meets modern code. We also have some places that require a water test. This means that some jobs require excavation of well head and water line from head to house. Plus an electrical and/or water inspection. If your job requires some or all of these services then your cost is not out of line, if not then you are most likely being overcharged. I would hope you would get another bid for comparison.

Good luck, Ray  http://www.consultnconstruct.com/

Hello Ray,

Sorry for the delay in responding.  I didn't realize until now that you had posted a reply.

The quote is for a complete install of everything from the well pump up to and including the pressure tank.  The well is approximately 175' deep and approximately 120' from the house. 

I've asked another company to give me a bid, just for comparison.  But in asking around, it sounds like $5000 is about what I should expect to pay.

Thanks for the reply and have a good weekend!

Jon
