Have fun with your new toy.
The leak detectors have gottne mixed reviews. I'd spend my money on flood insurance instead if you are really worried about it. Learn your O ring care first and formost. I use reading glasses from the drug store to help me inspect my O rings - hair, sand, particles of anything on the O ring can cause a flood. A magnifying glass will work too. Be meticulous and your chances of a flood go way down. It is all part of the underwater photography experience. O ring care is "Underwater Photography 101".
Always dip your camera in fresh water before a dive to look for bubbles that indicate a leak. With a new housing it is a good idea to put a weight in it and hang it off the side of the boat first (if possible) to check that your housing is good befoe you use it. Or, take it on a dive without the camera in it to be sure that it is a sound housing.
