LeakTronics founder, Darren Merlob got his start in the pool service business in 1989. His company began with a few customers on a service route and in a short time, Darren grew his local business to become American Pool Resurfacing, one of the most profitable and reputable professional pool renovation companies in South Florida.
While working with the equipment that was available on the market, Darren grew frustrated with results from traditional crack repair methods (including epoxy injection and re-bar) and he developed a revolutionary technique for repairing structural cracks, creating the patented Torque Lock Compression Staple and Stitching Method, now recognized the world over as the standard for structural crack repair.

The Torque-Lock Staple was the first of Darren’s many proven innovations and is distributed and trusted worldwide as the single best method to repair and stabilize cracks in pools, foundations, sea walls, statues, retaining walls and literally hundreds of other concrete based structures.
As opportunities came to light, Darren reached out to new business and relocated his home office to Texas; starting Austech Pools. With his new technologies and methods for inspection and repair, Darren’s business grew in a ten-fold, specializing in leak detection, pool and concrete repair. The Torque Lock Staple and Darren’s installation works were called on to repair some of Texas’ most cherished monuments, including the LBJ Memorial Fountain.
In short order, Austech Pools became the most relied on leak detection and pool repair service company in central Texas.
Darren was offered a request to sell the company as a whole to another entrepreneur. Yearning to continue his invention of devices that have ultimately revolutionized the leak detection industry, Darren moved again. This time it was to Los Angeles, California where LeakTronics was born. Since the company’s inception, Darren has developed a growing line of Leak Detection equipment that goes above and beyond the traditions of antiquated tools that have plagued the industry for years. Using modern technologies like “Phantom Power,” and uni-directional and omni-directional hydrophones have set LeakTronics equipment far ahead of other manufacturers.
LeakTronics equipment, and award winning online training, have become a staple in the leak detection industry for technicians, plumbers and people who want to have, or enhance their career in professional leak detection.
