Re: leaking pond- help needed

In our experience, the first area we look at when we detect a leak is  
the waterfall/stream. Had a precipitous drop in water level last week  
and checked the stream... found right away that our Vitis labrusca  
(Concord grape) - grown to provide shade on an arbor- had snaked  
roots into the stream and they were wicking the water off. So, after  
you have checked your pumps and the mechanical aspects of your  
system, look for areas along your falls or streams leading to your  
ponds for areas of unusual wetness.
