The Original Leak Detection Specialists

We are widely known as the Original Leak Specialists. Since 1974, our network of franchisees has detected nearly 5 million leaks, saving home and business owners billions of dollars in costly repairs.

Just as we offer an incomparable service to our customers, we offer an incomparable opportunity for our franchisees to grow and thrive in a fresh and dynamic industry, backed by a successful and seasoned company.

Supporting Your Success
Always remember that although you own your own business, you are backed by a huge network of people who own that same business and experience the same day-to-day concerns you do. Our sophisticated system of support reflects our maturity in franchise operations. Here are a few of the support systems that will be available to you:
  • 24-Hour Access to our Intranet:
  • Our Intranet provides an open, question/answer forum where you can ask your peers for a solution or advice on any aspect of leak detection operations.
  • ALU (American Leak University):
  • We understand it is hard to retain everything you learned in your initial training. That is why ALU is here to offer refresher courses in everything from day-to-day operations, to marketing, to relationship development with local contractors. Of course, this is all offered at ZERO charge to you, the franchisee.
  • You Are Surrounded:
  • From your fellow ALD franchisee in the next city or state to the ALD headquarters in Palm Springs, California, someone will always be available to talk with you and answer any questions you might have. Think of it as a safety net that most business owners can only dream of.
  • Quarterly Newsletter:
  • Not only do we keep you informed through our Intranet site, we also publish a quarterly newsletter that provides you with in-depth articles about issues relating to you and the American Leak Detection system.
  • Annual Convention:
  • Once a year we bring our franchisees from around the world together for four days of peer-to-peer networking, technical training, and meetings with business and industry experts. Following this event, franchise owners go back to their businesses with renewed passion and energy, and new tools to increase their success.

Why Our Franchise?
Training and Education

No Experience Needed
We are often asked if franchisees are required to have a background in plumbing or pipe work. The answer is, no. While knowledge of the fields may serve as an advantage, it is by no means necessary.

Our comprehensive, six-week training program will teach you everything you need to know, including:
  • Training on our proprietary equipment in a variety of residential and commercial settings
  • Marketing and business management tools and techniques
  • Navigation through our all-encompassing operations manual
  • First-class Marketing System

Since 1974, we have learned to leverage our relationships to develop a marketing program that makes it cost-effective to advertise. We have sought multiple avenues in traditional and non-traditional marketing to effectively inform and attract our clientele when they need our services. Above all, with all of our marketing efforts, we have made a very conscious effort to maintain our brand standards. You will be provided with a variety of creative and sophisticated marketing materials to both utilize and disperse wherever you go. These include:
  • Marketing team to help design and customize ads
  • State-of-the-art website with lead generation feature
  • Turn-key press release tool
  • Turn-key direct mail programs
  • Full complement of marketing collateral
  • Consumer-Targeted Direct Mail Programs

We are constantly creating awareness campaigns to expose our brand and services to potential customers. These awareness campaigns are targeted at a variety of audiences, oftentimes neighborhoods and other areas that are specially sought out through our lead generation program.

Referral Marketing
A large portion of our business is the result of referral marketing. In already established regions, we are well known by the people who need our services most. These include insurance adjusters, restoration companies, property owners, and municipalities. We also make use of professional resource services. In new territories, we can help you establish these relationships. You'll also discover how powerful word of mouth can be between neighbors and other companies who have been impressed with the specialized and valuable services we provide.
