How do you check for leaks in a radiant floor heating system?

My gas bill has gone up and I can’t figure out why, except that the heated water is going somewhere. We don’t have a basement and I don’t see or smell any sign of water.

Drain the system, pressurise with air. (about 25psi.) If the system holds pressure for an hour or more, there’s no leak. If there is a leak, you can usually find it from the hiss of escaping air. If not, a dye may be added to help locate the leak.
