Diving into Drinking Water

We had another great day Diving.

Our thing is to inspect and clean potable water tanks (Drinking Water). We use underwater cameras to make quick work out of tank and tower inspections. If the tank has sediment in the interior floor our potable water dive crew suits up in a dry suit and commercial dive hat so no part of the diver’s body touches the water supply. They are then washed down with a 200ppm chlorine solution to meet EPA standards for diving into potable water.

Over time sediment builds up in most water storage tanks, sediment may be a safe habitat for bacteria, protozoa, and even viruses. Keeping tanks clean and free of sediment is one of the most effective ways to keep water safe to drink. If your system would like a free quote give us a call at 817-377-4899.

A Sad note of a passing of a commercial diving legend,

The photos above show our potable water diver, diving with our Gorski G2000SS in 2020. The G2000SS was the first model created and sold by Les Gorski. We had a sad note today about the passing of Les Gorski. Les died on June 2, 2021, he was 68. Les Gorski, or actually Leszek Górski, was born in Łódź in 1953. Before he joined the army and got involved in diving for good, he first graduated from the Faculty of Electronics. After being called up to the army, he went to the coast, where his diving history began. Between 1984 and 2003, the Les Gorski helmet underwent many design modifications. From a handmade and unique specimen to a fully finished helmet. And it happened. In 2004, the G2000SS diving helmet underwent many tests and then went into production. The dream he sowed in communist Poland in the early .80s was realized over 20 years later in the USA.

In March 2011, Gorski’s company was bought out by Aqua Lung and the helmet became a key product in the new owner’s range. Without a doubt, the interest and determination of the American company shows just how good a product the G2000SS has proven to be. In parallel, Les Gorski joined the Aqua Lung team where he continued to develop his own diving helmet.
