Chad Gathany recently purchased the American Leak Detection franchise that he was working for in Daytona Beach, Florida. Like all American Leak Detection franchisees, Gathany will offer his customers “leak detection without destruction.”
“I knew I wanted to do something different with my life,” says Gathany, a plumber with decades of experience. “I’ve been looking to own my own business and American Leak Detection is a great way for me to get out in my community and provide a service that saves people money and helps conserve water. I think it’s a win-win.”
Gathany just completed several weeks of training which will help prepare him to become the franchise owner. He is already a certified “Original Leak Specialist” and for several years has provided a variety of leak detection services including pool and slab leak detection, electromagnetic pipeline location and infrared leak detection. Gathany and his team use a variety of exclusive equipment and utilize cutting-edge technology to find leaks without causing damage to a customer’s property. Under Gathany’s ownership, the franchise will continue to provide leak detection services to homes, businesses and municipalities from Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, Edgewater, and inland as far as DeLand.
Gathany and his staff serve an area of more than 600,000 people in Volusia and Flagler Counties with two trucks which deploy from their Port Orange office.
“I am proud to offer American Leak Detection’s tried and true services,” says Gathany. “Being a part of an internationally known company is priceless and so is being my own boss.”
When Gathany is not busy pinpointing leaks, he enjoys motorcycle rides along the Florida coastline.
“We are pleased to welcome Chad Gathany to our family of franchisees,” says Patrick DeSouza, executive chairman of American Leak Detection. “The transition from working in a franchise to owning one is a great step; Chad is committed to creating his own success. Our franchisees save customers money, minimize property damage, and help conserve our most precious resource – water.”
American Leak Detection has been operating in Daytona Beach for the past 20 years.
