I don't know what your ground structure is there; obviously compare prices for each meter of depth drilled?

If the ground is like Mactan stone (soft, whiteish-yellow) it can probably be drilled without a motorized drill rig!

 

Sounds like you need to store water in a tank, below ground is cool but requires a hand pump (for brownouts) or additional cheap electric pump to raise it up to your demand point.

 

Conversely, a tank on a tower (warm) works by gravity but needs to be high enough for showering using  1inch pipes (minimum) to your faucets which can "tee off" in 1/2 inch (faucet thread size).

 

I think the formula is each 10 metres (33 feet) height difference between shower head and tank floor equals 1 atu (14.75 lbs/sqinch) pressure.

We just had a well put down for the family in Mactan, Not sure how deep it was, the wife says " it was deep " but that does not mean much LOL, I can find out more information from the boys if you would like, it cost us 12000 Peso including a hand pump...

This guy posted a series of like 30 videos on the construction of his house in Magay Compostela including some of the well drilling.  Maybe you can find him from the videos and find out who he used and what he paid.  If you need a deep well I know a driller in Liloan price is p350/ft including the drilling and install of the casing and pump but does not include the casing and pump, etc.

we had a well drilled in compostela 3 years ago.drilled down to 93 ft hit good water.

then had a gould pump  for pumping up to tank then gravity flow to house.well is at the top of the hill so we have good pressure and water during power loss.

ill have to ask the wife what it cost .I think it took about 4 days to drill it. was drilled with trip hammer

I happened by that guy's place today and his isn't done yet either.  Lots of scaffolding still up and some of the finishing not done but I think they're living there.  I'll probably stop by to say hi in the next week or so.
