I am with the person who asked if the winterizing valve was turned to the proper position. look on youtube for the procedure to dewinterize and check that valve too.

Are you sure the pump is not airlocked and maybe not getting water to start the pump pulling water?

I've had to replace the flexible tubing between the tank and pump a couple times because it just wouldn't keep a seal on the barbed fittings any more. Air was getting sucked through the joints and was keeping the pump from priming. After replacing the old used tubing with some not new, but unused left over tubing I had that was still soft and flexible the pump was able to draw water from the tank again.
