New UST loosing psi

So my question is: I just got a new wheel build with dt swiss 5.1d's with the dt swiss tubeless setup. The tires are Kenda nevegal rear and blue groove front. My communication with the shop wasn't good as the setup sat for a week ( my fualt by the way). The front loses about 5 psi a day and the rear about 15psi a day. I only have about 10 miles of street on them. I want to try my favorite trails with 3ft drops but don't know what will happen ( this is my first tubeless setup). Is it normal to lose pressure over 24 hours? Do I just need to keep riding and inflating, Any advise is always appreciated

No you should not have to fill up once a day.

Check for leaks from the valve stem area and bead in a water tank.

Get a sealant

Have you tried pumping the tires up to a high PSI? I've found out that pumping to around 60 PSI and leaving for a few days helps to seat the beads (just don't forget to lower the PSI before going riding).

Shave your boobs, get goo in the tires an go ride. My tires loose some air but in a matter of 3-4 days, if I don't ride that is.
