Q&a: How Much Does It Cost for a Well and Septic Tank Install?

Question Asked by Dozzer: How much does it cost for a well and septic tank install?
I’m looking to get a septic tank and a well installed in the western Quebec area near eastern Ontario (an hour outside Ottawa).

I’m looking for an average price for an average size house (1500sq ft) for an med size family 4 or 5 people.

Well would be dug to 125ft deep.

Any guess, estimates or even contracted info would be appreciated.

Best answer:

Answer by edward
depends on the type of septic system, which will depend on how well the land perks. If the land perks very well a conventional septic will run you about $ 7000, a mound system for land that does not perk well can run anywhere from 10 to 22 thousand dollars.

drilling a well will be somewhere in the area of 3000 dollars.

(these are rough estimates based on the cost in the northern united states)

Answer by james bond
Well- $ 3000-$ 5000. Septic-$ 3000-$ 20,000 depending on soil conditions. A low cost perk test can give you an idea of the septic requirments.

Answer by William B
in TN its $ 30 a foot
a septic system is $ 2,000 not counting perk test

Answer by First Namealex W
2500.-3000. for well 600.00 for pump &tank–septic around 4500. think about it a well will need to be 150-200 feet from the septic lines—also a 125 feet 4″ inch well not give you much water it needs to be 175-200 feet deep for good water supply

Answer by oil field trash
Because costs can vary a great deal from place to place you would do well to talk with local well and septic system contractors to get more accurate numbers.

Answer by MillerPlantenet
Contact your local septic installer. You can, but, over time they may clog up your plumbing and septic drain lines. For clogging, septic system, plumbing and water supply maintenance use the all-natural http://www.MillerPlante.net Advanced Formula Septic-Helper 2000 and Enza Drain Line Cleaner. It has the 8 natural bacteria and enzymes that digest the waste in the tank AND out in the drain field. To reduce your Phosphate and Nitrate levels to Zero coming from your Laundry, use their new All-Natural Enza Wash-Balls. According to the EPA, Chemicals used in the home are the #1 problem polluting water supplies and water wells.

In 2011, the EPA (TMDL), Mandates that States clean up their water supplies. It mandates new inspections on all septic systems, water wells and with funding, local waterways. A failed inspection would include a slow drain in your leach field, low septic tank bacteria levels or elevated Nitrate levels in your Water Well or local Water Supplies; could require replacement of your entire system for $ 10K to $ 80K+ or connect to the city sewer system for $ 5K to $ 40K. The new inspections are failing 12% of systems each year and 82% of those older than 1977.

Q&a: If You Are Buying Land to Have a House Built on-how Much Does It Cost to Get the Land Ready?

Question Asked by jon jon’s girl: If you are buying land to have a house built on-how much does it cost to get the land ready?
Like the septic tank and things like that. I know it will depend on the area and other things but I need some kind of ball park figure and what all has to be done. The land is already level and cleared but that’s all.

Best answer:

Answer by Flyby
I would guess somewhere between $ 2-5,000 for a field line and septic tank. If you are talking about putting in power or telephone lines, the costs can go up from there. Your best bet would be to call around to contractors in your area for estimates. You may also contact your local hardware, building supply store or other building companies, such as Lowe’s or Home Depot. They deal with contractors all the time and if you want to do it yourself, they could give you a good idea of the costs involved.

Answer by DJ B
A septic and well system will probably run in the neighborhood of $ 50,000.

Answer by SMEO
Five things to consider first: 1) Is it buildable,check with your county property appraisers office. 2)Does it need septic tank-Ask a septic tank provider.3)water: do you need a well,a well drilling company can give you an estimate.4) Electric -Your power company can tell you how much it will cost to hook up your home. 5)don’t forget cost of permits. I would find a builder that has a good reputation ,and ask him. The more knowledge you have the better. Good luck.

Answer by TANGERBER
It depends on the size. For regular size the system should be around 3,000. The cost for having it made is also high and could be around 1,500 to 2,500 depending on the particular characteristics of the site.

Answer by sensible_man
Installation of a septic system is around $ 2000. Replacing would also require removal of the old one and the leach field piping before replacing, so more money.

Answer by Ronald P
It will cost up to $ 5000.00 to replace your septic system. Most likely all is needed is to replace drain field lines which you should done for 2500 to 3000 this price varies call and ask several contractors in your area. My daughter had there drain field replaced 2 years and found a contractor that only charged her $ 1400.00 . I told her never to loose the mans name and phone number.

Good Luck to you

Answer by yspring
There are many variables in installing a septic system. Costs vary from state to state and from county to county. It really depends on what part of the country you live in, how much of the system you need to replace, how much space you have for a replacement system, etc.

A properly designed septic system will typically have a soils evaluation done. Sometimes by the local health department, sometimes by a certified soil scientist.

Be sure you contact the local health department. They will tell you what types of septic system(s) can be installed on your particular property.

In Ohio, a 2000 gallon septic tank runs about $ 1000, but the money is in what’s after the tank. A subsurface sand filter or a standard leach field for a four bedroom home would be around $ 7000 to $ 9000, assuming no mechanical parts.
A mound or drip system can cost $ 15,000-20,000, depending on it’s size. Larger homes (more bedrooms) will cost more.

You will need a permit for this – contact your local health department for more info. They may also be able to answer your cost questions as well as any other questions you may have.

How Much Will It Cost to Develop an Acre in Order to Put a Mobile Home on It?

Question Asked by questionthenymph: How much will it cost to develop an acre in order to put a mobile home on it?
We own the acre already, but it needs water, electricity, clearing and land moving, and a septic tank before we can place the home on it. Also there are the hidden costs of any permits we must buy. Has anyone done anything like this before?? I would really appreciate any advice!

Best answer:

Answer by rockpolisherc
I live like that, only on a little bigger piece of ground. There are a lot of variables in what your asking. Septic tanks, price varies on size, and your area, perk responses in the ground and many more factors. Elec. depends on how far the lines have to be brought in. I would have to pay over 150,000.00 as I am very very remote, so I found it much cheaper to go Solar Elect. I have a Satellite for my tv. and I am using Wild Blue which is another satellite for my computer. Prices for permits, vary from state to state and county to county. You would need to be very specific or call the local building and/or zoning dept to get viable answers to all of these questions.

Answer by dusty_titus
If your going to put a mobile home on it instead of building a modular (my preference) you will need to find out what size is allowed. Your local city planning department will have the answers. They’ll tell you where you can place your home in relation to the road, called the “set back” and stuff like that. For the Electricity and gas/water – you must go to the nearest provider of those services w/a plat map you got from county assessors office – showing the details of your property. Expect to spend 2 weeks in search of answers. Also a shortcut to process would be
to contact Local contractors for septic tank installation and other local contractors for driveway from road. Total expense probably in the 20,000 range, depending on how far away the water and electrical lines are. Also, many rural areas do not have “natural gas” and you will have to contract to have propane set up at your property. Once every 4 months a truck comes w/new supply of propane. You will need a storage tank for that.

Answer by Backhoe
It will take several thousand dollars if the untiltys r very far away.
The septic tank will depend on your state and county permits.
The clearing and dirt work will run in a the thousands.

Answer by bob and dolly k
we did what you are talking about. the total site prep cost for us was
30,000. this was in oregon. this included putting in the driveway, slab
for the home, electric, water, propane tank and hookup. septic and leach
system, permits. we put underground electric and phone, overhead is cheaper. our house was 95 feet from the street. the farther you are away
from the utilities the more expensive it is. we were in a county area
so permits are cheaper if your not in a city area. your county planning
office will give you all the paper work you need and tell you what
permits you will need. you will need to draw a rough blueprint of
your property dimensions and where your house is going to be put for
the county and one for the elect. co. you will have the elect. co.
come out and they will tell you where you will have to run your power
from. stake out where you want your house so everyone can see
about where its going. you can talk with the power guy and let him
know which side of the house the meter is going to be on. so he can figure out the route the lines will take. make your driveway approach
as wide as you can to accommodate the const. equip and the home.
you will need to do perc tests to see where the septic needs to go.
if utilities aren’t already to your prop. you will need to pay to get them there unless you go off grid.

How Much Does a Well Cost?

Question Asked by An open mind…: How much does a well cost?
Im sorry but Im building a new house and need to know How much does it cost to buy a well? I cannot get city water unfortunately, and Im also curious to see how much a septic system runs?

Do I OWN the water if I have a well? How long does a well last? How do I filter it? Are their any energy effiecent filters?

Best answer:

Answer by billrussell42
It depends on how deep they have to dig. One quote I saw for a 100 foot deep well was $ 3000, plus $ 2000 for pump, tank, etc. Per foot cost is about $ 10 per foot. so if you have to go down to 500 feet, that adds $ 5000.

nstalling/replacing a conventional septic system (including the tank) averages $ 2,000 -$ 5,000 in the Midwest, but can be $ 4,000 -$ 12,000 or more in areas where materials and labor rates are higher.

Filtering depends on the quality of the water, you probably don’t need any filtering.

.

Answer by Thanigaivel
You mean, how much it cost to dig the well?

In that case, it depends on your location, the type of well you are going to construct, and the size in terms of diameter and depth. Same applies for septic tank too.

Its your building, and you own it. But you might need to pay taxes if you are going to use the water from your well for commercial purposes. You need to have a survey of your locality to know your ground water level in all seasons, so that you will have enough water in it anytime. It should be available from your city office.

Answer by oil field trash
The costs can vary a good bit across different areas. You would do well to talk with several local water well drillers. They can give you much better information on local conditions and ball park costs. I find contractors like this very helpful since they see you as a potential customer.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Septic Tank Cleaned Out?

Question Asked by : how much does it cost to get a septic tank cleaned out?
okay, so we need to get out septic tank cleaned out(i think its called pumped). how much would that cost?

Best answer:

Answer by florida fan
Average house tank $ 300 to 350.

Answer by opinionated
my 1000 gallon tank just cost me 200.00 to pump it out

that is with me digging out the access. they will charge extra to find the tank and to dig .

Answer by wvparanormal
It depends on where you live and if you know exactly where the tank is located. They usually don’t charge any differently if you dig it up or if they dig it up.

Cost to pump it should range somewhere between $ 200-$ 350. If they have to find the tank, they usually charge about $ 150 extra to find it. The way they find it is to flush a magnetic bobber down the toilet and then use a device similar to a metal detector to find the magnetic bobber underground.

Q&a: How Much Would It Cost (ballpark) to Switch from a Septic System to Town Sewer?

Question Asked by Joe D: How much would it cost (ballpark) to switch from a septic system to town sewer?

Best answer:

Answer by mrcapitan35
You would have to at least run your main line to the floor and break that open….open a hole to the exterior…..run a ditch to the road…have a licensed contractor who is allowed to break into the city main run the line….seal your existing septic tank (flush it). I think you would be looking at about $ 20,000. If you were lucky and could do most of the work yourself and have it passed by the city then you would still need the contractor licensed to break into the city main. As soon as I get city sewers I will get a loan if I have to, just to get rid of my sump pit. If you look at the long run and the life of your septic field and tank, it would cost about $ 20,000 to replace that alone. Don’t forget tho’ that you would most likely start getting a bill from the water works monthly !!

Answer by Jackie M

$ 5,000 for ours 8 years ago, it doesn’t go by number of people, but number of bedrooms in the house, each bedroom gets X amount of line for the drainfield. Ours was 3 bedrooms.

Answer by Jim B
1. $ 3,000 to $ 5,000 if done on the weekend in a rural location.

2. $ 5,000 to $ 8,000 if done during the week after notifying the County Health Inspector, having an engineer design it, having it perk tested and getting it installed to pass inspection (assuming it passes perk testing).

#2 is the right way to go if you aren’t sure about the local inspection process, don’t have an existing system that is being upgraded, don’t know if the soil will leach adequately or want to avoid legal issues later.

#1 is the way my local town building inspector suggested I go when I had a septic system installed to replace an old stone cistern a few years ago in Upstate NY. In his words, “You are just trying to improve the situation so why should you be hassled for that? A lot of building gets done on the weekends. The County Inspector doesn’t work on weekends.”

You need to have them build a raised leech field with a pump system. It’s gonna cost you like $ 15,000.

The conventional is the most economical. There is also the sand filtration system which is elevated above the grade. I haven’t priced one lately. Last time I did they ran between $ 15-25,000. Hopefully they have come down some now. Problem with this is your backyard looks like you have a big bunker buried in it.

We live in an area with a lot of clay in the soil. We have a aerobic septic system. It has three tanks, one that is designed to separate solids that can not be digested by the system, a second tank with an aerator to digest the sewage and a third tank with a pump that stores the treated water. It acts as a surge accumulator and when it is full it pumps the water out through a series of sprinklers on to the ground. In between the aerator and the surge tank is a chlorinator (it used chlorine tablets) for the liquid leaving the aerator.

At first this sounds like a real mess but in fact it is a very good system. We have had it for over ten years and it has worked like a charm. There is absolutely no odor and all we have had to do is pump the sediment out of two of the tanks. We’ve done that three times in 10 years.

Ten years ago the system cost us about $ 6,000. Since then we have had to replace the small air compressor but that was expected since it runs all of the time.

There is no leach field to worry about getting clogged. All parts are accessible for repair or maintenance.

Just buy that new High Tech toilet system. I saw it on Bob Vila or This old House.
It burns your waste rendering it null and non-toxic and goes out with the trash,,,,,

I don’t have much experience with this kind of “project” myself, but I do know that septic and leech systems can be extremely costly.. My husband and I almost bought an older home that was in need of all new leech and septic systems and because of the strict guildelines that the county in which the house was located, we were looking at having to pay an extra 20K dollars for the repairs before we could even move in. The only usable system that the county allowed in place of what was already there had a constant blower motor attached that runs non stop to help “dry up” or evaporate the waste product.. Thus adding an extra dollar ammount to your montly electric bill. I would reccomend that you check with your county health department before going much further to see what kind of systems they will and wont allow you to have.. This could save you alot of time, money and frustration. Sorry I can;t help further but I hope this helps some.
