Is this pump above ground ?
Did it ever pump after the pipe repair ?
Ok the pump will have to be primed
To do this you will have to take the pipe off or if you can find a fitting at the discharge of the pump take it off
The easiest thing to do is take the discharge pipe off and fill the pump with water
It will have to go quite a ways at least past where it broke
Put as much water as you can in the pump not the line you took off
This should give it enough to prime itself
Remember it has to be the discharge it will be the pipe that goes to the tank
OK how many pipes go under ground ?
There should be 2 pipes going to the pump where do they go ?
One last question is the tank higher than the pump ? and how if you can are you going to fill the tank ?
I have this figured out i am just trying to make it easy for you
I got you
Let's do this take the pipe going to the tank off at the tank
Now the end of the pipe going to the pump fill it with as much water as you can so it goes into the pump and fills the suction line when it's as full as you can get it put it back on the tank and start the pump
The best thing to do is borrow a hose from a neighbor if you can i know it's late
I also know that pipe isn't going to come off easy so another thing you can do is if there is a pipe plug on the tank take it off and fill the tank
