    Mass balance not matching. Is the water in the pipes included in mass balance?

    I have a network (Steady state). The total water demand is 2099 m3/d
    There are 2 water sources. In one the flow is 1336 m3/d and the other is 500 m3/d = 1836 m3/d (less than 2099 m3/d).

    Why is the mass balance not matching?

    Is it possible that the water inside the pipes is included in the mass balance? If so, is there a way to fix and match the mass balance?

    Additional Question.
    I have a valve that is closed. However, there is flow in the pipe downstream the valve.
