    Actually they are super chill and he said he was calling ___ tomorrow and it wasn't anything earth shattering. I was planning on doing their fall cleanups on the house.

    Sounds like the guy is willing to work with you. It could be worse. Some people act like i'm the enemy. I have this yard in a nice subdivision and the couple is getting alot of work done (cabinets, painting,remodeling, etc.) This guy in a yellow truck parks in the grass, and when i get close, he comes out and stares at me so nothing hits his truck. I don't fool with him, i just skip the whole area. He did it yesterday.

    the pumps sit at the bottom of the well. a poly tube with wires attached run to the pump and to the house the pump may need to be primed.

    My dad is pretty sure I broke the line to the house when I jarred the well. It seems to fit the story with what the guys said.

    Id says the question is how rusted is it. From what my dad says the pipe going down is in sections. So if its rusted beyond hope then ya, it all has to be replaced. I hope if that is it then it won't be all on me because it might be in a situation where it was ready to go.
