I felt the film was so different from the book that both can be enjoyed separately.
The body in the tank was the magician. The machine did not simply transfer someone to another place; it made a duplicate. To prevent there being many copies of the one person the tank was devised to drown the original leaving only the replica alive.
The book explains this much more readily.
I'd have to rewatch the film to answer your other questions.
