    My pump was about $1000US .... maybe
    Well was deep.... but turned out to be false.
    Some will guarantee water.... all water here is hard.... HARD

    There is a house purification system .... ECOSERVE in Sosua/ Cabarete... about $2000US 
    Ultraviolet system.... drink all the tap water you want.
    I've had water purification systems for over 20 years for whole house drink from the tap. No problems.

    Put the well in and changed the situation.

    I tried to work with your recommended company and............ Kicked them out after 6 months. Would NEVER recommend them. NEVER!

Might be better to just do it??


    In the campo there is no need for that, nobody cares.
