Default 2008 2500SE water tank access

I have a 2008 Maxum 2500SE and winterized the water system last year by draining it via opening the tee fitting, blowing air and running 10 gallons of pink thru the system. This Spring when I filled up my water tank and turned on my water pump, the pump just runs doesnít build pressure and water is coming out of my tank directly into my aft bilge. I can see the water running into the bilge each time I run the pump but I canít see the tank or where the water is coming from. Anyone know what this might be and how to go about accessing the tank? Looks like the tank is under the aft birth, but I didnít see any way to get to the tank. Thanks for the help!

The tank is on the section side not the pressure side of the water pump. Since it only leaks when the pump is on the tank is not the source of the leak but instead either the water line after the pump or a fitting has ruptured.

Thanks you were right- helps if I close my water heater valves. I inadvertently opened this thinking I was closing it. Now the system works like a charm. Thanks for the reply!

Kinda went a different way than I expected. If you hear water running, it really helps to track it down to its source.
