How long does a landlord have to fix water supply problem?


I have been having an onlgoing problem with my water supply. We have well water and the pump has gone out. It has now been a week with NO WATER coming to the house at all. I contacted them the day it happend. If this was the first time it would be understandable, but about once a month it goes out and he has to "order" something before it can be fixed. If it wasn’t for the fact that I have rental assistance I would move, regardless of the lease as not having running water is a violation of that lease. I don’t know where to turn at this point, or what I can do if anything. I have now spent Thanksgivinf, Christmas, and now mother’s day woithout water due to this probelm.
