Does the water smell of bleach? Did you leave the water system pressurized? (If yes & yes you likely have a leaky faucet, if no then water is likely getting in from outside.)

Water by the bedroom slide may be unrelated (unless, of course, it also smells of bleach).

If the "leakage" doesn't smell like bleach: this is unrelated to the tank.
It means that you've got a leak somewhere.

I don't think the bleach concentration would be strong enough to smell over the already supply of bleach in the drinking water anyway. There was water by the door but ceiling was dry. He said he had no leaks before he pulled the strainer screen from pump to clean it. My guess is the strainer bowl didn't get tightened back enough.

Or the strainer bowl is cracked. Iíve had 2 crack in so many years. Put a dry paper towel under the strainer and see if you have a leak.

my pump strainer cap was cracked form the factory. Resulted in a very slow leak not found until the first overnight use.

Also when new, I had found that the gravity fill pipe and overflow vent tube for the tank wasn't very secure.... If yours is like that...and if you filled the tank all the way to the brim, these tubes would be filled and ready to leak.

Just some thoughts....
