Default Need a radiator/cooling system pressure tester

I'm in a pinch.
Emerald Ghost Jr. ( my Son) drove down from Montgomery last night to visit for Mothers Day and developed a coolant leak in his 2006 Toyota Tundra. It is Sunday and he needs to drive back for work tomorrow a.m.. Anybody on here know who in Pensacola can fix it today, or knows where I can get ahold of a radiator/coolant pressure tester ? It is not a fast leak, so I can drive it to a service location, no problem. Just can't drive 175 miles back to Montgomery until it is fixed. Any suggestions are appreciated.
(We have done the cursory things, visual, radiator cap replacement, reservoir inspection)

O'reilly's rent's them with a deposit. Autozone use to rent tools, don't know if they have a pressure tester.

let the rad cap be loose so that it is not being pissed out.
As long as the water/coolant is up to snuff and it is not 90 out it will be okay for the trip back.

Thanks all.
Reilly auto parts was a huge help.
It was a small split in the seam on the radiator, and had a new one installed.
A good day for all.
