Leak Detector Maintenance & Repairs

Our leak detector services range from basic repairs to complete rebuilding of the unit.  When we receive the unit we first make an assessment of the problem and then give an estimate for the cost and time to repair.  After this is confirmed our technicians proceed with the utmost in care and attention to detail.  After the repairs are complete, we retune and calibrate the unit to meet or exceed the original equipment manufacturer's specifications.  We also warrant our work for 90 days from shipment.  We also offer preventative maintenance programs to fit your needs.
