    What to do when fountain only leaks when the pump is turned on?
    My fountain only leaks when the pump is turned on and almost all the water is gone in a day? I know a little bit is expected to splash out but it can all be almost gone in hours.

    It would appear that there is a leak in the pump line that only shows up under pressure. When the pump is off, there is no pressure.
