    Have you checked your breakers and breaker box connections ?

    You should keep the water heater off, until you can fill it with water, so it don't run dry.


    Good Luck.

    What are those loose wires for? They look like pump cable to me......

    Air in the pipes, sounds like a bad check valve in the pump, or a cracked/broken pipe in the well. Possibly a rotted fitting at the pump.

    I was wondering the same thing, on the wiring.

    Looks like a Electric Heater was replaced with Gas.

    Looks unsafe to me no mater what they were/are used for.


    Maybe the poster will shed some light.
