    Well, I guess that’s one surefire sign something is wrong.
    Do you have leak detectors? I’ve always meant to get around to setting a few up.

    Would a strainer have stopped them?

    I would love to set up leak detectors. One problem I have is I would nee almost 60 feet aqua bus cable. It was not to bad of overflow because I caught it right away.

    I was very surprised at how many I had in there. The were all located at one of the elbows. Having somewhere around 50 of drain I added a union so that I can take it apart once a month easily and make sure everything is flowing well.
