Have you tried a electronic leak detector or any type of UV leak detector?

Back when I did sealed system work yet we use to get a filter that had the UV die in it. We would change the filter out, charge it up and look around with the UV light for the leak.

Electronic or UV? Never had much luck with either one to tell you the truth.
I found searching for leaks in domestic sealed systems to time consuming and only did it back when I was doing warranty work.

HVAC and other commercial refrigeration systems I can see searching for leaks, as they cost more to start with and it's not simply a matter of carting in a new unit and plugging it in.

In either case I never like purchasing cheap equipment, but that's just me. ;)

I've been using Leakfreeze on the leakers. This one sounds like it's leaking fast so I don't know how well it will work.  Reliable has 00279 with a charging hose for $35, 00277 without the hose is $26.  If you don't mind waiting a few weeks, go here and get a free sample with the charging hose.
