I do I can do anything with a little knowledge I purchased the new wire was told cause so far from barn have to run 220
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 1 year ago

Electrically it may and to verify it all you need do is power it. If it runs you win, if it trips the breaker, further checking would be necessary.

When had well guy here he said needed to run 220 cause of distance from pump to barn which Is110ft
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 1 year ago

That's what it should be at the connection at the well. Turn a water valve on to allow the tank to activate the pressure switch and test each end of the switch for 230V.

Pump when the pressure switch operates.

They will make sure your tank is set up properly and can set the correct pressure on the switch.
