Up north the going rate is +/-100 per head and has been for a while. Interested to see what you get for pricing.

I was quoted today 650 for new pump to be installed to existing well. 150 for permit with the city. 2800 for new piping and heads for 2/3 zones. Basically starting from scratch with the old well. Ill have to count my heads tomorrow.

If this is for a new home, Do you have a landscape plan? If so take in to consideration shrubs and flower beds and so on. When I did mine years ago, I ran lines up and capped them until we got our landscaping all in. glad I did, one mess one time.

Not new home. Previous system exists but is old and pump is bad. Anyone have experience installing their own pump and trying to deal with existing system to repair themselves? Thinking putting in pump would be pretty simple. Buy a 2hp and see what's working. Then again; paying someone is way easier and wont eat up my time. I think I prefer to pay a pro. Any input on weather fixing existing is worth it over new? Ill likely still go with a guy who knows what he's doing vs trying myself.

Pay the guy.

Pump, pump start relay, clock relay or program to trigger pump start, master valve, zone valves, pressure relief valve.

These are the parts to get started with. Anybody can change out parts. A good guy figures out what to change out before he starts and does not guess what's wrong.

I had the guy who put mine in run 2 lines to my shed 1 for water and 1 for electricity also ran a line to the end of my driveway for electrical.
