Got up this AM and it was higher again and the level in the overflow had dropped again. I now have called Oceanic and they directed me to write to their tech support person to see if they can figure this out.
I don't think the leak will matter whatsoever if everything was left running as the small amount would just keep getting recirculated. But the fact that it is leaking makes me shy away from just turning it all on until I know what the leak is.
I never knew how obsessive I could be until I started all of this.
Ok, so I knew, I just didn't let others know.
