UV dye for coolant leak

Coolant is slowly leaking somewhere around the right condenser and visible along the bottom edge of the wheel well lining. Monday I removed the front bumper and cleaned out a huge pile of leaves and dirt. Some of the condenser fins are bent, probably from the debris, but so far I don't see any obvious leaks there or along the rubber hoses. At this point I'm trying to decide whether to continue investigation or let RUF handle it.

1. Has anyone tried UV dye to trace a coolant leak and is this okay to use in the Boxster?

2. Is there any need to pressurize the system to diagnose or repair? Unless it can be done with a Motive power bleeder I don't have the equipment.
