water well serving two houses


My brother and i share a well.we recently switched the electrical from my house to his by diconnecting the wire leads from my house and connecting the leads to his.
we are now haveing a problem ,we cannot get any water to my side withoout first turning on the water at his house and running it till the pump cuts on. we made sure his plumbing was the same as mine at the pressure tank before switching the power supply. does anyone have any ideas?? thanks

Is the ONLY thing you changed the electrical or did you mess with the plumbing as well?

A diagram of the system would help.

It should have made any differance if the plumbing was not changed.

Just a guess, is the pump wired for 110 or 220? Are you sure you did not try running it on 110 when it's wired for 220?
