Rare that a tank leaks. More often it is the line coming out of the tank or the tank drain line. It can be hard to tell with the line being so close to the floor. On the pump you need to determine if the power is getting to the pump or not. A 12 VDC test light or small digital multimeter is the easiest way to find out if that is the case or not. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use.
