Rapid windshield washer fluid usage

I've never had this issue on any vehicle.
It seems silly, but it is annoying.
I have a 2015 JKUR that I bought new.
I never really noticed before any massive washer usage, but now it will eat a gallon in just a few sprays.
I've checked for leaks....and can't find any.
It almost seems like the washer pump went into "turbo" mode and it is just burning through the fluid.

Any suggestions?

When you check for leaks, you check the whole Jeep the hose going to the back washer too? Just cuz you don't see it leaking on the ground doesn't mean it's not puddling somewhere inside.

^^^What he said.. don't quote me, but i think the rear washer hose runs under the drivers side floor carpet if you have a hard top. If so, check it out. Some have found leaks there as in wet carpets.
