GlacierWe have a well, that my husband installed over 18 years ago. It is
still going strong… although I agree that lightning can strike, surges canhappen and you should have a savings for that risk happening,… it hasn’t
happened to us in 18 years.
Also, we have been on septic for that long as well, never had a problem withit. You won’t if it’s installed correctly, the leaching lines etc, no tree
roots etc.. and also the thing I believe in most. Do not flush anything
down the toilet except your human waste. No toiletpaper, tampons, etc. Mymom and dad had a septic and well and never had to do anything to their well
in over 30 years, never had to do anything to the septic in 30 years, then
they had to replace it because the lid broke or something.So, as far as I am concerned, LOL, I’ll keep my well and septic… the
chances of having to have it re-drilled? Pretty slim. My grandmother’s well
is a shallow well and is still going strong in over 85 years of pumping forher huge family and now my sister’s family.
To each his own.
