pump seems to work fine it holds pressure turns off and off at the proper pressures but will not build up the pressure without assistance . when the pipes  were done dirt got into the system and i am wondering if that would change the pressure switches I am tired of messing with it and would prefer to pay someone even if i need a new pump put in just thought i would prefer to pay a free stater as anyone and good plumbers are hard to come by. anyone interested let me know.

Is the pump an in-well pump, or a suction pump located in your house?

I'm switching from a suction pump to an in-well pump, so I'll have a whole suction pump, tank, and pressure switch setup available.  So, if you have a suction pump, I could just sell you an entire replacement setup.

There should be a device down in the well that uses pumped water to force more water out of the well.  It's a venturi jet, I forget the proper name for it.  The orifice for that jet breaks down over time.

Do you have two pipes that exit from the pump and go to the well?

It would probably look like there are three pipes coming off the pump; one that goes to the pressure tank and two that go to the well.  Or a pipe that comes off the pressure tank that goes to the well.

"Venturi" is the proper name, but they're pretty rare, these days.  Most folks either have a suction pump, or a submersible pump - submersible pumps have come down in cost to the point that most folks who have a deep well with a venturi pump that fails, will just replace it with a submersible, so the venturis are getting rare.

After rereading the symptoms; the pressure tank is not hold air inside in the tank.  Maybe a new pressure tank is the answer.

Or, check the fittings on the pressure tank. If it has a pressure gauge, make sure it's not leaking.

The air side tends to leak more than the water side.
