Turns out that if you take one very smart guy, add a multimeter (not as sexy as a smart phone, but much more useful in some situations), you are on your way to getting the water running again. Oh, and about 20 bucks worth of parts.
This view is from the well house up in the grove. The structure is deep so that it doesn’t freeze at the bottom, so the water system isn’t damaged and the water can flow all winter. Even though we don’t use it then. I have no idea when this well was drilled (I assume, not dug), nor why here, but I guess the county has that info somewhere.
Overnight, we used the water that was in the tank above the pump and the long line down to the house, so we were okay…until the fix. By the magic fixit man, the Guru.
