First thing you should look at is why is your tank loosing so much water? do you have tops on the tank and sump? how big is the sump? are pumps internal or external? any leaks? Temps inside and outside of the tank?

what about the humidity in the house. we would replace 2 gallons avery 2 days due to eveporation. now we have dehumidifiers in the house, so hoping now it will stop.
