We purchased a mobile home on a small lot from an older gentleman who resells property he buys from courthouse tax auctions. The mobile home has been empty about 4 years and we are trying to check what needs done to get water into the home. There was no hot water tank or pressure tank connected to pipes. Someone had removed the panel off the front of the trailer and took the hot water tank. They also had removed a section of underpinning and removed the pressure tank, and the wiring from the well is now connected to the wiring into the breaker box. The gentleman we bought the place from said he connected the pump wiring to the breaker to use temporarily for cleaning and spraying the driveway off. He said he would flip breaker on while using the water and flip breaker back off when he was done. We flipped it on and there was water, we used it for about 15 minutes and flipped it back off. When we returned to do some repairs and flipped breaker on to fill up some buckets to clean with, but then there was no water and the breaker did not trip. I don't know if the pump burnt up that quickly just using it a handful of times and those times it was on no longer than 10 to 20 minutes. It is a two wire submersible pump in a 180 ft well. I know we need to install pressure tank, switch,etc, but I wanted to see if the pump needed replaced or if its wiring, or clogged up area (hard water area), or leak in pipes in the ground. Is there anyway to diagnose the well pump with it being connected like this? Without connecting to a pressure tank or pulling the pump? I would like to know, or should I say hoping it won't be another costly issue just to diagnose the problem.
