    We have a well pump that was pumping water into our home, but yester day we came home and the piping was busted where it screwes into the pump. water was shooting up everwhere, and we shut it off. When we fixed it and turned the pump back on. There was a small amount of water comming out of the faucet plus air. How do we get the water to flow back into the house?

    Shallow well??

    It sounds like you may have a shallow well system with a jet pump. If this is the case then it will need to be primed with water before the pump can suck the water from the well an into your home. Tell us some more info on your setup and we'll try to help.
