Shari, History Maker/ First Woman Trainee

“After traveling out to California for Darren’s two day training course. I can’t begin to say how much valuable information you will learn from being with him for two days. It’s priceless. Darren will explain the leak detection process and how to use his equipment correctly. He teaches you the different techniques for finding return leaks, skimmer leaks, main drain leaks, light leaks, vacuum line leaks, etc. He teaches you tricks in the trade that took him years to develop. I can’t image someone trying to perform a leak detection the professional way, without the proper training from Darren. After I returned home, I was off and running with my first leak. I called Darren for some advice and he was there to walk me through my difficulties. Thanks for teaching me the proper way to find leaks.”

Lou Tobia, Tobia Pool Care

“I just got back from the training school and learned more about leaks in two days then I have in the last 5 years. I have found literally dozens of leaks I would have never found without the proper training and equipment. Thank you very much for your help Darren.”

Jeff G., Howorth Pools, GA
