Well water lines


We have no pressure coming into the house. the well is working and we have pressure under the houes. No when we drain the line, we have hot water coming back out instead of cold but no hot or cold water in the house spickets

The first thing that comes to mind is a frozen pipe; where are you located, and is this a possible scenario? What do you mean by "the well is working"? Is the pump running? If the pump is running, and the water is not coming into the house, I would suspect a ruptured line. What do you mean by "we have pressure under the house"? I suspect that the hot water at the spiggot(s) is the result of siphoning back out of the water heater, due to the loss of pressure in the system.

The pump current draw may give you another clue.
