pump runs, no pressure, no water

My husband puncture one of the pipes going from the well to the jet pump. We repaired the pipe and since the old well pump had been going out for the last year, we replaced the 1/2 hp with 1 hp pump. we couldn't keep pressure up. Well guy came, replaced pipe going into well and replaced the foot valve/injector thing. Got good pressure for a few days, then noticed the filters were getting clogged. We changed them out and got pressure again. Then the pump kept running, holding good pressure. It wouldn't kick off so I unplugged it. Now the pump runs but will build up no pressure. HELP!! Do I need a new pressure tank? I don't know much about wells or pumps or presssure tanks.

Have you figured it out yet? Maybe you just lost prime. You can bring up website(s) with diagram to illustrate how-to.
