tire - slow leak

I have a slow leak in one of my tires, about 5-10lbs a week. Anyone have any tips on finding it. I tried soapy water but didn't see any bubbles.
thanks
Mike

Check your valve stems with soapy water.

I checked the valve stem. I was hoping to find it myself and put a plug in but I don't have a kiddie pool. I guess I'll go to a tire shop.
Thanks

x2 on the tire shop. My last car had one, and I took it over and they found it. They took my wheel off and put it on something and spun it in water until they saw a bubble... tah-dah! leak... They patched it for like 5 bucks too!

Thanks for the info on things to check. I'll check that stuff before I take it to a tire shop. Now I have to find a shop, I think I have one about 1/2hr from me. I love where I live until I need something.
