Help: Water puddle but not over heating

I changed the radiator 1 week ago because of a small leak. Everything has been fine for a week and tonight after dinner I walk to my car to find a big puddle underneath. I drove it about a mile to drop off a friend at his car. When I stopped I checked under the hood and there was water being sprayed up by the fan. I couldnt find a leak and water look like it was pouring out the bottom of the engine. I filled it back up and drove about 3-4 miles home. Got home left it in idle and open the hood to check my car. The leak was now minor. I kept the car on for 15 minutes. My jeep never over heated, nor did water leak like it did. I got inside and 30 minutes later decided to drive it down the road and back. I drove it about 2-3 miles and not once did it over heat, nor did it leak again. At first I thought it was a loose hose. all the hoses seem tight. I then thought it was the water pump, but If it was it would continuously loose water and overheat. So Im a little clueless at the moment. And suggestions? How much coolant should I have put in after I changed the radiator? I put a lot of water in the tank. Do you think this was extra coolant that needed was expelled? Id rather not take it to a mechanic if everything is ok.

If you overfilled the tank then it would definitely overflow once you stopped the vehicle....Keep your eye on the tank level.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.....Enjoy it.
