Hey guys my system is running strong and healthy, but i have noticed that the water level on my fill tub is dropping about an 1" just over a week.
Yes, i have checked for leaks. There is not a drop of liquid to be found any were in my system or the heater core.

Is the water level dropping like this normal?

I would guess that the tank isn't sealed and that the warm water is just evaporating.

mine has been up for about two weeks or so and has also dropped nearly an inch, but it is just a t line. if your losing that much out of a res than you likely have a problem. hopefully they just take a couple weeks to "settle in" though.

Now you got me scared? The W/C system is sealed. No leaks or opennings and no, the res. is sealed.

Could this be a settling faze?

maybe you are using just water and didn't mix anything so its evaporating from the heat...it can evaporate out of tubes you know....like water evaporating out of a water bottle

If you aren't leaking anywhere, you're fine. Either its settling in, or its evaporating. Just keep on fillin er up.
