If you have noticed that your pond has been losing water recently, there are a couple of ways that the issues can resolved.

Troubleshooting Leak

First thing you will want to do is unplug pump (Run air bubbler if fish in pond) Fill pond to normal height and monitor for 24-48 hours. Mark where the level has dropped to and search around perimeter for possible hole, it will be about an inch above water line or an inch below. If the water level does not drop in this time frame, this means the leak is either in the plumbing or the waterfall/stream.
