I immediately referred him to 3 qualified and trained LeakTronics users within 40 miles of his location and he called them. As it turns out, 2 of the technicians were friends and they both agreed to come take a look at the job together because they both wanted to see what the other company had done.
One of the two technicians agreed to take the job for $400. In 20 minutes he found the leak exactly at it’s location in the return line, eleven feet away from where the franchise company drilled holes and with a 15 minute walk around on the pool using the Spot Mic, he addressed that there was a small weeping leak at the previous repair on the pool and that he could address that easily for Mr. Brewer and the county pool.
In an hour, for $400, the leaks were found, the customer was properly serviced and for a fraction of the previous repair quote of $8000, the pool was to be repaired and returned to service.
The point I’m making in sharing this is that you have options. Franchise companies have high overhead and often limited equipment options and training to find the leaks. Pools and residential plumbing are two completely different beasts, and while you maybe find someone trained to test pipes, there is a lot more going on in a pool than just a pipe running under a patio. A Leaktronics equipment user has the most modern equipment available to find modern pool leaks and trained technicians know the fastest and most accurate methods of leak detection for getting the job done right.
