    It’s much less viscous than water and a much lower surface tension than water so it will find its way through the tiniest cracks. The other option would have been to pressure test it (as they did with the radiator) but that wasn’t really practical with the large open surface (they would have need to make a plate to fit over the top and then a gasket to seal it)
