water leaks are not normal. Check for loose hose clamps, pin hole in any hoses, cracked radiator necks, cracked t-stat housing, leaking water pump, leaking heater core.

there is a product out that you can put in your radiator that stops leaks, i have heard both praises and curses on this however, your leaks sounds like it might be too much for this product, but if its helps any, you could try and findout, who knows? it might plug that leak right up. good luck

Try this product. These are great and received good reviews - I used them on a few cars successfully:

However - you need to find where your leak is first. Maybe it's not a radiator leak, but a crack in a coolant container neck. I'd take the car to a mechanic for inspection first.
