If you are loosing .5 a bar in 24 hrs leak sealer will probably not work I am afraid, pipework will have to be re-run surface or leak detected in floor and repaired It is worth mentioning that if leak sealer in used for a small leak, say a drop over 3 or more days, then on a pressurized system, to give it a better chance of working the pressure should be dropped to .5 bar and heating thermostat lowered to provide warm radiators only for a few days needless to say some combi boilers will not work at this pressure
