If the pump wasn't working, sounds like it may have been sucking wind and the breaker needed resetting. That used to happen pretty frequently here, but out well guy managed to drop the pump another 20' down the casing for us.
We had our pressure tank replaced once because the bladder had ruptured and water was on both sides of the bladder and had pretty much filled up the entire tank. Symptoms were crud coming out of the tank, weak pressure, pump running too much, etc...
Getting the tank out was an issue because it is installed in a closet in the house. Had to poke holes in the side and drain it into buckets to get the water out before we could remove the tank.
