vacuum leak by [email protected]
Hi, I have a fluid art challenger system running against our pond. I suspect I have a vacuum leak somewhere since the pump starves for water after about 10-12hrs. Any pointers on how one can diagnose the problem? No apparent water leaks while the system is running. TIA
