The costs of replacing a well pump are based on the type of pump, its depth, its location and the size of your well. For example, replacing a shallow well jet pump (see: Shallow well jet pump replacement) is usually less expensive than replacing a submersible residential well pump. Replacing a malfunctioning pump is important, especially if your well is your primary source of water.
Submersible pumps come in cast iron and stainless steel and range from three-quarters to five horsepower. Despite the higher price, submersible pumps are considered more reliable than jet pumps and are less noisy. The cost of installing submersible pumps will vary based on the size of the well, material and motor size. Lower horse power pumps have a rough cost of around $475, while more powerful units can range from $700 to $1,200. Many submersible pumps also require the installation of additional piping, which will increase overall installation costs. Adding extra piping can cost an additional $250 – $2,500, depending on the scope of work.
