Sounds like you might be dealing with a wicking issue - if some of the soil is coming in direct contact with the water in your stream, it acts as a conduit and wicks the water away into the soil. In other words, it may not be a leak issue, but rather an issue of needing to eliminate all contact. Wicking can be a real pain in the kester, especially in a paludarium.
