While that is very logical and hopeful, the system is pressurized and may leak any way it wants to unrelated to gravity or position. The olnly way to know for sure is to look. Assuming hoses are clear, Methinks you should do a search here to find the procedure to check the weep hole. I think it is visible to the naked eye.
