installing a light on water well pump

i'm trying to find out how i can put a light on my water well.

i want a light on when the pump is running.

that way i know if there is a broken line, i would notice the light on all the time.


any idea on doing this myself?

Hook a wire to one of your pump leads in the pressure switch.

One wire won't make the bulb light up. If you have a 110V pump, one lead to positive and one lead to negative--to the fixture you choose. If you have a 220V pump, there will be two 110 wires and a ground--one lead from one of the two 110 lines and one lead to ground.
