Brake fluid leaking - Pedal issues

The pressure on the brake pedal changed to a very short stroke - no spongy feeling when pushed all the way down. I checked the master cylinder - there was no visible leak near cylinder or on the ground - the level of the front and rear cylinder alternate losing fluid. After I refill the brake pedal feels normal for some time. Any suggestions ? thanks

Check the rear wheel cylinders. You have a leak somewhere.
