Ya mine is still leaking as well, I fixed it once with some gasket maker and that lasted about a month and then it started again, then i took it out coated the crap out of it with hot glue and well it started leaking right away when i put it back in, so its time for a whole new one i guess!

I had the same problem and thought the tank was leaking. After removing the tank and cleaning the entire outside and refilling it with the water and let it set for hours and no leak. After reinstalling the tank and refilling with water, two days later it was empty. So I ordered the small seal that the pump fits in and before installing it I used a small amount of silicone sealant on the seal and 6 months later, no leak. Hope this helps.

Mine was leaking several months ago and I pulled the pump. Mine kind of twist locks into place and the design is not the best. Anyway, where the seal is I cleaned it up and added silicone sealant and carefully reinstalled. Waited a couple days to cure before refilling. No leaks!
