You're looking at more like $15,000 with every thing on top of the ground as well.

I would hook up to City water. Well has to be maintained- they are now talking about new wells have to be metered and they will charge you for the water used. up front cost is more and well water around here has to be treated or it messes up your appliances.

Who would you pay to have a well water? You own the water rights typically. Just curious what entity would have the right to charge you for water under ground.

Lived on a well all my life. I'd go with city water if I was you and the cost about the same.

@Glen I'd like to know where you heard this as well. I don't think it's true.

Wife has been in government work for years. Some states have went to meters on wells. She said Texas is underway of proposing meters on wells for "monitoring". She said there is rumor of trying to push through stuff on aquifers to charge a fee for education, research and some other BS bases on consumption. It has not happened as of yet but I can see it starting on the meters to "monitor" in the next year or two.

Ever consider rainwater collection? You get good soft water that is easy on your plumbing fixtures.

Talk is cheap. Passing a bill in the Texas legislature is a whole 'nother ball game. Overturning Texas Supreme Court precedent is ... well ... I'm not even going to go there.

I've heard this too...I think if you have a well already it will be grandfathered in...that's one reason I was looking at a well because in the future having an unmetered water tap is probably going to be a big advantage on resale and home value.

Unfortunately it's looking like a well is going to be in the 20 to 25k range from people I talked to yall suggested.
In this area it's just passed the Edwards so have to go 800ft to trinity. ..so looks like I'll be going city and looking into rain collection for irrigation
