California Specialty Classification License for Leak Detection & Associated Repair
Before hiring someone to perform a swimming leak detection on your pool, ask these important questions:
1. Are they Licensed & Insured? Is their license posted on their website as required by California state law? Here is a link to check on any licensed contractor. If they are not licensed, they're not bonded and insured
