WATER STORAGE TANK SURVEY SERVICE BY REMOTELY OPERATED UNDERWATER VIDEO CAMERA
To add to our Refurbplus® comprehensive tank inspection and refurbishment service, we can provide an internal
survey of a tank, even when the tank is full of water, using a remotely operated submersible camera unit.
Benefits include:
 No need to drain a tank to carry out an internal inspection – saves money, as there is no need to shut down
sprinkler system or pay a temporary premium on your insurance cover
 Avoids the complications associated with confined space working, as no personnel need enter the tank to
inspect it – saves money and time
 Provides a closer inspection of the entire interior of the tank from top to bottom in a fraction of the time
required for a manual inspection, without the need for ladders or scaffolding – simplifies health and safety
issues and provides better information faster
A video of the interior of the tank can be produced and presented as part of an assessment report. Using the
submersible camera unit means that the tank does not need to be drained. This means that there is no need to pay
increased insurance premiums in order to survey the interior of a fire sprinkler tank.
