Well, I investigated the quick disconnect assembly fairly well but after switching the pump back on it was easy to realize it wasn't leaking near the assembly but rather around the rim. I'm still trying to figure out how the seal twisted itself while the lid was still on though, as that appeared rather odd to me. But it gave me a good excuse to do maintenance on the canister anyways :)
Thanks for the help 2C.
