How does a pump installer license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects your clients from damages should your work be deficient in some way. The bond guarantees that you, as the contractor, meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the State Board of Well Drillers). If you fail to follow the bond agreement in any way, clients can file a claim to request compensation.

To obtain your pump installer license bond in Maryland, you’ll pay a premium (a small percentage of the bond amount). ZipBonds can often issue bonds quickly at a typical annual rate of $100.
