Power steering fluid leaking?

Hi all,

Today while i was driving the power steering started to fail. It was like one moment it was fine, the next it felt like turning the wheel with my car off.

It was on and off until I got to autozone and found that the power steering fluid level was low so I put some fluid with "stop leak" in it. I had never checked my power steering fluid level before. Right now the power steering works fine so it was caused by low fluid.

Does the trailblazer "lose" fluid every now and then, or could this only be caused by a leak? if so, how would I find a leak?

If it helps, I didn't see any puddles near the front, and I didn't smell anything that smelled like power steering.

Look at the lines on passenger side that have the insulation over it(that's where they rust out most of the time).
