    Perplexing......2 days without rain, but temps in the mid 80's and this morning it's down about 3/4".
    It's a 15 foot running stream and 12' x 14' pond. Could this be just evaporation?

    The average daily pan evaporation rate for your general area has been around .12 inch*. So the total for 2 days would be a max of about 1/4 inch. This leaves 1/2 inch unaccounted for. It appears that you have a small leak.
