How long can a jet pump last without a good pressure tank?

I share a well/pump with another house. They refuse to help me pay for a new pressure tank as they feel it isn't needed. The one we have now has an air leak and only takes a quart of water before shutting off the pump. Then is starts up and runs 6-7 seconds before it shuts off again. I'm leaving for 4-8 months soon and hope the system dies while I'm gone.
Update: I'm willing to pay for the tank myself (although it would be nice if they would pitch in too) but he doesn't want me messing with the water system since he thinks there's nothing wrong with it now.

When it dies, let them have that well and put in one of your own. May be you have good water, but generally the deeper you drill, the better the water. Put in a submersible pump and a big tank and you would be much better off.
