Potable Water Reservoir Inspections

We perform comprehensive potable water reservoir inspections along with maintenance and cleaning for government agencies and corporations.

Commercial Diving Services own and use the required dry diving suits and sterile equipment that is compulsory for these services and all our commercial divers chosen for these projects are at a minimum certified by standards AS/NZS 2299/1/2007 plus trained exceeding confined space certification requirements.

Fire suppression water storage tanks also have a requirement of inspection for ongoing certification and typically requires commercial divers to provide photographic evidence and reports along with NDT services when required. We also have the equipment to clean fire suppression tank floors from silt build-up using our portable vacuum system.

Our diving equipment configuration is that of SSBA industry standard non scuba operations. Our SSBA system is equipped with 100m diver umbilical, safety lines, hard wired communications, surface supply backup air and emergency tripod rescue equipment enabling peace of mind and assurance to our clients.

Our high quality video inspection systems for this task lead the industry in providing quality, reliability, portability and safety.

Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV) are becoming increasingly important in their ability to carry out reservoir inspections without diver intervention and in some cases during reservoir operation if the correct screening of outlets are in place.
