Cool

Ron (Pumpman) Peeks is the resident well and pump expert here.
Until he comes along, you need to start troubleshooting the pump and well.
A. As nutuboo said, check the breaker/fuse/power to the pump first, and make sure that it's on.
B. If that's not it, check the pressure tank air pressure with a tire gauge with the pump off and the water pressure drained down. It should be two psi below your cut-on pressure.
If it isn't, air it up with a bicycle pump or portable air tank or compressor. If it won't hold the pressure, the bladder is shot and you need to replace the tank.
C. If the pump is running and the tank pressure is O.K., you may have a leak on the suction (well) side of the pump or the water level in the well has fallen too low.
It could be a lot of things.
Good Luck!
Mike
