At LeakTronics, we do more than just manufacture the world’s most accurate and easy to use electronic water leak detection equipment; we provide leak detection services daily. Helping customers find hard to spot leaks and get repairs made to stop water loss is our mantra. We also share advice on leak detection.
We take phone calls daily from leak detection technicians, both who do use our equipment, and those who struggle with equipment from other manufacturers that they’ve had for years. When the discussion begins, it always comes back to basics. How much water is the pool losing, and what is the circumstance when it goes.
Pools come in all shapes and sizes, and have different system configurations that make the pool operate. Some technicians are facing equipment set-ups they’ve never encountered and they look for advice on leak detection. That’s when they call Darren Merlob, the CEO and founder of LeakTronics and owner of CalTech Pools.
Darren has been providing expert solutions for swimming pools for more than 30 years. What began as a service route in Southern Florida grew into a replastering service, a repair company and ultimately – a globally distributed line of patented professional leak detection equipment that contractors trust daily to get the job done right.
Finding leaks in the past often required diving into pools and using dyes to see if water was bring pulled into fittings, cracks and vinyl liners. Where these methods of leak detection fell short of discovering the precise locations of leaks, the end result often led to invasive techniques that caused even more damage to see leaks and get the repaired.
