leak checking a water cooled condenser

does anyone have any other ideas on how to tell if a water cooled condenser is leaking refrigerant? i normally will check for oil in the water or if possible isolate it from the system and pressure test just the condenser.this can be time consuming.looking for any other ways.thanks to all

    Instead of pressure testing the refrigerant side, I'll drain the water, recover the refrigerant, and pressure test from the water side of the condenser. No cutting, no brazing.

    leak in water cooled condenser

    u  can check with electronic leak detector, where water is discharged from condenser, water and gas have independent properties.
