We troubleshot my old tank by putting soapy water over the tank and its connections, then looked for the bubbles. I've done this when checking gas line hookups on gas ranges and on bike/cycle inner tubes. That's how we found the leak - we saw the bubbles coming up around the base of the tank where it was set in the concrete.
I ended up having a new air tank installed that used an air bladder, much like an inner tube. It allowed me to switch to a smaller tank and still have great air pressure. The tank ran me about $100 3 years ago, and the local plumber hooked it up for $50 in labor. I hope the troubleshooting info helps you some - regards! Jim D/Heathsville, VA
