Inspection Diving Services

This is the first step to proper water maintenance. Inspections can be performed by a potable water dive team or ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) with excellent results. Accompanied by HD video, our team can provide a high-quality presentation to the client of the facility floor, walls, roof, pumps, overflow lines, valves and flanges. During this inspection, samples may also be obtained for testing or, if inadequate blueprints exist, a diver can be used to document measurements of the facility.

Pump & Valve Repair

If pump chamber reservoir valves are not functioning, Aquatech Diving & Marine Services can be called on to replace or repair facility valves, cotter pins in actuator arms, or replace screens on pumps. Our dive crews have worked on numerous applications that also include facility isolation using inflatable or mechanical plugs.

Fill Line Extensions & Baffle Walls

Many reservoirs contain what are known as dead zones, where little or no circulation of freshwater is determined. In this situation, an extension on a fill line is installed by our dive team to help eliminate this problem. Baffle walls are also becoming more common in water facilities, preventing short circuits in water flow and allowing chlorine more contact time in the water.

Reservoir Diving Services 

In the over 1200 reservoirs inspected by our potable water diving experts, 94% had a sediment build-up on the floor. 

Materials found included:

  • Organic growth 
  •  Iron bacteria
  • Filter media 
  • Sand 
  • Coal
  • Post-filter flock
  • Well sand
  • Gravel
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Birds

Utilizing our expert potable dive crew is a cost-effective alternative to draining the reservoir and possible water service disruption. Using a three-inch trash pump and suction line, we can clean and remove unwanted material with little or no disturbance to the reservoir or its PH and turbidity levels. 

Top Hat Cap Installation

This allows the contractor to tie into existing water facilities without having to drain them. Our dive crew will anchor these caps into the reservoir wall. Once attached, a hole can be cored or drilled behind the cap. A line, valve and link seal are then installed. Once the link seal is tightened, the diver can remove the cap completing this “live” tie in.
