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?

no leaks , sump tank 40 gal like 20 gal in sump around 3 inch above pumps i like to keep it , temp goes 76 to 78 with and without lighting main tank stays full sump loses alot i guess its the movment of the pumps

Thats very odd. my 135 is hotter and has a bigger open sump and i lose about an inch in 4-6 days.

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.

you can try putting a cover over part of your sump.
