American Leak Detection

Detection of water, gas, sewer, oil, and air leaks in concealed piping located in pools, slabs, walls, etc.


Ranked #1 in Entrepreneur® magazine in the “Maintenance Products and Services” franchise sector for the last six years, American Leak Detection is the world leader in the industry we created - the accurate, non-destructive detection of hidden leaks (water, sewer, and gas). From concealed plumbing systems to swimming pool cracks, the smallest leak is located with the most advanced, sophisticated electronic devices - without bashing holes in walls or digging up the deck and yard. American Leak Detection sets the standard for non-invasive leak detection and repair with proprietary methods and technology. Founded over 30 years ago, we now operate a network of highly trained Original Leak Specialists in nine countries on five continents.

American Leak Detection’s recent partnership with PlainSight has resulted in a new combined Research and Development department second to none. PlainSight is affiliated with Yale University and maintains 40+ patents. You'll have access to our new, specialized, patented, and powerful electronic leak detection equipment. Environmental protection: Water conservation and contamination prevention are serious issues and key areas of concern. At 40 psi, even a 1/16th inch hole in a pipe can cause a loss as great as 360,000 gallons annually. We provide solutions in water savings and pollution deterrence. Pipes that carry potentially hazardous materials for soil and ground water such as sewer, drain and gas lines, can be tested by our technicians for leaks. Water, a precious natural resource, can be preserved with our methods.
