Water Tank-Tower Inspection Services: Municipal or Industrial

Since 1995, U.S. Underwater Services has provided economical and safe diving inspection services to municipalities, water districts, military installations, and a variety of companies both small and large for their potable water tower diving, process water tank inspections, maintenance operations, (like sediment removal, and repair needs (such as access hatch fabrication/installation.
Draining tanks to inspect or clean them wastes a significant amount of water, thereby costing the community it serves valuable time and money. We offer clients a time-saving and cost-effective alternative for inspecting and cleaning potable water tanks.
When working in potable water, our professional, ADCI-certified divers utilize equipment that meets or exceeds all OSHA and AWWA standards. Inspection equipment includes a chemical resistant dry suit and diving helmet, surface supplied air, and an audio and video link which allows for two way voice communication with the diver. All divers and equipment are disinfected to AWWA standards with a chlorine solution before entering any potable water. Our sediment cleaning system employs a submersible pump to vacuum sediment out of the tank while it remains in-service.
We will perform both interior and exterior TCEQ inspections to assure that the tank's physical integrity, water quality, and security are in compliance. All inspections include a professional report containing the following:

  • Narrated DVD
  • Pit and Blister Analysis
  • Water Access Hatch, Vent and Internal/External Ladder Conditions
  • Reporting of Sediment/Debris Levels
  • Corrosion Estimates (as needed)
  • Recommendations for Any Repairs Needed per AWWA Standards
