Spongy Clutch

Instead of hijacking the leaking clutch thread I figure it is better to start a new one.
My clutch is spongy after the vehicle sits for a few days. I pump the clutch about a dozen times and everything works fine. What should I be looking at or trying?
I hate plumbing projects!
Thanks!

Spongy = air in line. You sure it's not leaking?

No drips found but the reservoir was super low (I couldn't see any fluid when I opened it up).
After about a dozen clutch peddle pumps it is firm.

Because fluid got low so air bubbles got pulled in past the piston. Refill, bleed and figure out where the leak is.

Fluid is just disappearing so I'm guessing I need to swap out the slave.
