Today we are cleaning a 98 foot tall standpipe in Oklahoma. Because of the water depth we deployed our Deep Trekker DT640 robot crawler we call “Wallie”. This little guy can work in water up to 165 feet deep. We have developed this method specifically for cleaning Standpipe type potable water tanks. Our Potable Water Dive Crew is a great option for cleaning ground tanks (GST) and Water Towers (EST) and you can read about that service on our other blog posts and on our web page at www.watertankinspection.com.
The AWWA recommends annual water tank inspections. In Texas and several other states water storage tanks are required to be inspected annually. We have three uniquely different underwater inspection methods that allow full interior and exterior inspections while the facility stays fully operational: 1) our remote camera inspection is the most economical using our custom built underwater camera and lighting system to get a good look at the interior of the tank from the interior roof all the way down to the floor where we can estimate your sediment levels; 2) Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) – Our Deep Trekker DTG2 is able to swim through the water like an underwater drone getting to the back of very large tanks for a more comprehensive inspection; 3) Potable Water Diver inspection – Diver inspections are used to look at specific areas or when a repair or tank cleaning is also needed.
