    Start checking around the filters and the plumbing related to that. Next see if the ground and soft and "spongey." I would venture there is a leak in either the plumbing or liner.

    Does the pond completly dry out or drop to a certain level and maintain at that level?

    Shut the pump of for a 12 hours and monitor the water loss. this will tell you if there is a water leak in the plumbing or falls. If it still leaks than there might be a hole in your liner or a crack in your cement,.

    Also, is there a waterfall?

    Any squirting garden statue stuff?

    Is it rubber liner or a preform shell?
