If there are no leaks, the brake system probably has air in it and needs bleeding. You may need a kit or some help to do it right.

Your brake master cylinder is bad, it has an internal leak.......this is when the brake fluid leaks past the the piston because of faulty seals.....so when you press the brake pedal the fluid is not compressed & pushed out to each brake caliper, it just flushes back into the reservoir, thus the brake pedal going to the floor.

solanog is an unknown quantity at this point
Check if it leaks on the inside, up the pedal were it pushes the cylinder.
