This tool calculates the total cost of drilling a well based on your provided inputs.

**How to use the Well Drilling Cost Calculator:**

Fill out the form with the required information on the diameter and depth of the well, the cost of the material for casing, labor costs, the cost of the pump, and any other miscellaneous costs. Once you have entered all the information, click the “Calculate” button to get the total estimated cost of drilling the well.

**How the Calculation Works:**

The calculator takes the depth of the well and multiplies it by the cost per foot of the material used for casing and the labor cost per foot. It then adds the cost of the pump and any other miscellaneous costs to give you the total estimated cost.

**Limitations:**

Please note that this calculator provides an estimate only. Actual costs may vary based on other factors such as local conditions, additional requirements, and unforeseen circumstances. Always consult a professional for an accurate cost estimate.
