So either the fluid tank is cracked, or one of the gaskets or hoses popped of or is split or cracked. You'll need to do some investigating.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEYnAqAfbTA This should help locate where the reservoir is and I think your pump or hose is leaking. The best way to track it down the leak is to fill up the reservoir and add a little food dye to it, this will make it easier to find the leak.

At the bottom of the pump, where it goes through a small hole into the tank, there is a small seal around the pump. Mine cracked and fell off which allows the fluid to drain out quickly. You can unplug the pump unit and go to a Hardware store, find a small seal or gasket in the plumbing dept, that fits snuggly around that end of the pump. Apply some sealant and press it in to the hole.
