Remotely Operated Vehicle ROV


Operated Vehicle

The ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) is very effective for inspecting potable water tanks. The submersible unit “swims” through the tank via propellers and surveys the roof, seams, standpipes, and cables. Its camera captures footage while robotic grippers can take samples of corrosion. The ROV makes tank inspections safer, more affordable, and therefore, can be done more frequently. The ROV performs with the same inspection quality as would the services of a diver. The ROV is submersed into disinfectant as per AWWA regulations and guidelines before being lowered into the potable water tank or standpipe. It uses a 250-300 foot tether and is manipulated through the water by a trained ROV operator.
Remote Underwater Video

This is is our most popular and economical inspection. We document a State required inspection points. Our report is delivered in a notebook with photographs of inspection points and an underwater video that covers the interior roof, water surface, waterline, and underwater areas visible from our remote underwater camera and lighting system.

Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV)

Covers everything above with additional underwater video taken from one of our ROV’s. This allows you to get a more detailed inspection from much larger facilities. It also allows a customer to get great documentation on specific areas.

Tank Cleaning and Inspection

All of our inspections include an underwater video of tank floors. This allows us to get a good estimate of accumulated sediment. It is important to know how much sediment is in the tank. Sediment on the floor of the tank can be a safe habitat for bacteria, protozoa, and even viruses. Our cleaning service removes all loose sediment. After the sediment is removed we are able to see the floor of the tank allowing us to document the condition of the paint and see corroded areas if any.

    Is your storage tank due for inspections?
Our ROV underwater inspection services are ideal for the following applications
Potable Water Tank Inspections

ROVs are the best choice in inspecting and documenting the overall condition of the interior tank coating as well as all critical components of potable storage tanks including the walls, floor, roof, inlets, outlets, and vents. In addition to providing a visual inspection of the interior condition of the tank, ROVs are also useful for detecting leaks, harmful corrosion, and sediment buildup within the storage tank. We recommend that potable water tanks be inspected every 3- 5 years to better forecast future tank cleaning and maintenance needs before larger problems arise. Our qualified inspectors are here to handle all of your ROV and underwater inspection needs.

Fire-Water Tank Inspections

Fire-water tanks play a critical part in fire protection. They are constantly on stand-by, primed to deliver water in an emergency situation. A sprinkler tank must be properly maintained to assist in providing protection of assets and human life. We recommend having your fire water tank inspected everything 3 – 5 years. Regular inspections offer businesses, insurers, and municipalities peace of mind. Our qualified inspectors are here to handle all of your ROV and underwater inspection needs.
