We had the good fortune of connecting with Kenton Rivas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kenton, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Aquaman Leak Detection helps our community and the world by actively saving millions of gallons of water a year that otherwise would not be saved. Through the old fashioned methods we use diving pools we are able to plug and stop leaks where otherwise entire pools would be drained. Working under water to solve a puzzle in the sun or in the extreme cold can be an adventure. We go the extra mile to save water and help our neighbors. Our straightforward exact diagnosis helps our customers know what exactly needs to be done. Concrete ponds need to hold water & water needs to be conserved ๐Ÿ‘

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Becoming GREAT at anything takes time, patience, commitment and belief. We guarantee our service which means something and we stand behind that so there is a standard that absolutely must be met every single job. Jobs can be challenging and we have a reputation that we like to find every single leak. Sometimes we have to gain observations through our customers to solve an issue or make several trips and work alongside with the repair company to expose a tricky leak. Esoteric knowledge and commitment is what separates Aquaman Leak Detection from the rest. ALL we do is leak detection so we have seen ALOT of different leaks.

Letโ€™s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The beach or the mountains depending on the season. Venice beach is always classic and entertaining ๐Ÿ‘Œ Going in either direction on the coast is a great decision to find waves , islands or catch dinner We are so close to many destinations like sequoia, yosemite, mammoth or even go to Mexico

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Lowell Ball of Aquaman Leak Detection in Melbourne, FL. I met Lowell while traveling solo in Costa Rica. The first morning staying at his hotel we surfed and cooked a pig together. Years later after returning home from Indonesia surf travel I met with Lowell again but in Florida. He was only a couple/few years into doing leak detection after owning pool stores. I was very interested in the whole picture immediately and after working with Lowell for a day I was hooked. A great work life balance and fulfillment in what we are able to do for our neighbors and for the planet. The Aquaman team has grown every year in both California and Florida and I am so stoked to be a part of that thanks to Lowell.
