Cost and flexibility are the two biggest things. You can do what you want to with your water, meaning you won't have a municipality telling you that you can water your grass today but tomorrow you can't. You're also not being charged outrageous water bills if you decide to start watering your grass this month.


A well usually costs about 60% of what city water costs in the long run. When you pay double the price to get municipal water, what you're really paying for is dependability. You are paying for all those backup wells. I know if something goes wrong, someone is going to come out in the middle of the night and fix it even if it's Christmas Eve. With a residential well, you are saving a lot of money, but you are not going to get that kind of service. If you have a problem, you are going to get it fixed the next day or sometimes two days later. A good driller will devise a plan or set up a system where if it does fail, there is a backup built in. It usually costs a little bit more, but there are ways to make them have backups built in.
