Minor leak detection help please


Hi everyone
We had a problem with the pressure dropping in our boiler and it was suggested that we have somewhere in the house a small leak. We have changed a boiler 2 days ago and the pressure is still dropping and I have to top it up every 2 days.

Before I go and ask the leak detectors to come and find it (which will also be difficult as the leak is indeed minor) I was thinking of using a sealant.

Does anyone know if the work? Or is it a temporary solution. Also, is it likely that they may cause damage to the system and the radiators or boiler?

Many thanks in advance for your opinions

George

Have an inspection done first before trying any quick fixes, that's what I would do.
