    Default frozen something

    Morning, it is about 5 degrees F here. Been cold for over a week but the last couple days have been really cold. Well house is sealed with lamp for heat (against side of house), basement pipes all have mild heat (maybe 40 down there), this is a 25 foot deep well with a jet, left water in farthest facet dripping very slow last night.

    Anyway, work up this morning with no water. Went out to check the pump and the pressure gage is at 0 and the pump of course is not running. Is this it just frozen or did the pump go?

    Thanks for any suggestions. We are trying to add some heat to the well house to see if that works.

    It will usually be the little tube going to the pressure switch that freezes first. Use a blow dryer on it and see if the points will close.
