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.

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.
