    Oh Boy, don't get me started ... getting my well drilled was a nightmare. The first driller said they would finish in 8 weeks. Over a year later, after nearly two million pesos lost, the fourth driller I used finally managed to finish the well. Be very careful about creating a good contract before starting, pay as little as possible up front, and then make progress payments as specified depths are reached (make sure you are present to confirm the depths), and make as much of the payment as possible be contingent on completing the well. Specify in the contract every little thing like the casement to be used, the pump, the motor, the wire gauge, the above ground electronics, the support and warranty, and that all materials must be new.

    Not sure if this is something they do, but PhilX, the company behind the forum does construction. You can check with them if you like.

    Show how much variance there is with our experiences here. Whilst I’m sure you are right with all the ins and outs of contracts, materials etc I very much relied on the trouble n strife to smooth things forward. No need for a contract, work completed double time, all materials bought by us after advice from the contractor. We now have two boreholes, both supplying at an excellent pressure.

    The wells do need cleaning by compressor especially after long periods of rain, and power fluctuations are always an issue with the equipment. But does it spring forth like a stream? Yep. Pm me for the contractors name. I swear by him.
