How To Measure Pond Water Level|Water Loss|Leaks|Rochester|New York|NY
If you think you might have a leak or just want to monitor the water level in your Rochester (NY) pond, looking at water lines on rocks is NOT an indication of water loss. Water wicks on rocks and varies, making it ebb and flow and not a good way to see if you are losing water.
For a good reference, check for something that is plastic, like your skimmer box. Plastic does not hold water and will be a much better way to assess any water loss. Inside the skimmer there is usually screws that could be used to mark the water level.
