Hello,
has he checked the water side exchanger where the refrigerant would leak into the water?
Nitrogen is used to pressurize a system BEFORE it has freon or when it is EMPTY.
It is best to use an electronic leak detector or as you mention a dye.
The unit leaking into the pool water would result in small traces of oil in the pool on surface.
