 No water coming into The House
Author: jsp (MD)

I am on a well water with a septic system. I also use an electric water pump to push the water into the house. Well, I can home after a 3 day trip to find that no water was coming into the house. I opened all faucets,and nothing. I checked the inside pump to see if I had pressure; which I did. 40-50, and no electrical outage. Outside temperature has been in the mid 20's. Mid 30's today.
What do you guys think it is? Has the water pump gone bad? Could frozen pipes be to blame? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

Someone on-site could tell better than we can - we're looking at monitors. Both of your suggestions sound plausible, you, or someone you hire, has to start poking around.

If there is water pressure in the tank, then the pump should be okay. There being water in the tank and none in the house does imply that the pipe has frozen, assuming no one shut off a supply valve to the house.

See if you have a pipe running along the sill. If this is covered by anything, even a curtain by a window, it will be insullated from the heat in the house. 3 days is plenty to freeze it. Thaw slowly with room heat and a fan.
