It's looking like fresh water.

The pump does come on every few minutes without use.

And the puddles are getting bigger.

My main issue is how do I get to the plumming?

The main water station is all screwed shut and a bit scary looking as far as taking the whole panel off.

The pump closet area also looks kind of complicated to get behind.

It's dripping from right under the water bay.

You have a lot of valves there. That means lots of connections. You may need to figure a way to pull the panel off and look behind it at every connector. That can be a real project just getting it off to easily see behind it.

It looks like you have a great setup for trouble shooting. Turn of all of your hot and cold water valves. Wait and see if your pump cycles. If it doesn't, start turning them on, one at a time. If it still cycles with all the valves closed, you know the leak is upstream of them towards the pump. My guess is that since it is leaking behind that panel, it is one of those valves.....

Good luck hunting it down. Approach it like solving a puzzle.

I would start with that water inlet valve. 4 screws and you can probably ease it out a couple of inches. Subject to pump pressure, it is usually plastic and can crack or the fitting pull out.

Does the bottom panel (or a side panel in the next bay) come off with just a few screws. If so you would be able to look in/up and see all of the pipework.

The back side of the inlet valve is cracked. It leaks during fill up, but also after it's filled when the pump is on.

I'm having a new one delivered for $32

Thanks! The main thing I needed to do was figure out how to open the panel. I just removed all the screws and it popped open. I was afraid I would need to disconnect all of the fixtures. Luckily it was pretty easy to get into.

I would let it dry out, then hook up to city water, do not turn on any faucets, wait awhile and see if it starts to leak. If nothing, turn on a faucet in a sink, or add water to your toilet, waiting in between each one to see if there is a leak. I had water coming from beneath my coach when I first bought it, thought it was from be A/C, but it wasn't coming down the wall. Turns out it was a check valve on my H/W heater. For what ever reason they put a plastic check valve, I replace it with a brass valve for $8.99 and it works great.
