Types of Inspections We Offer

Storage Tank Inspections provide three types of inspections to fire water storage tank owners, operators, and managers. These are:

Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) tank inspections are a robotic-lead assessment of the inside of your fire water storage tank without needing divers to enter your water tank.

Submersible remote-controlled vehicles are deployed to locate potential defects using sensors while keeping your fire water storage tanks operational for fire prevention and suppression. Our experienced team will maneuver precision remote-controlled technology throughout fire water storage tanks ensuring that you can provide fire prevention and suppression in your house, business, or industry whenever necessary.

ROV tank inspections is an innovative water tank examination and servicing solution our industry has to offer, proving the most popular method for water tank service providers and clients due to its:

  • Efficiency and convenience
  • Ease of generating reports from recorded data
  • Superior data-capturing capabilities
  • Ability to not require tanks to be drained and refilled
  • Low-risk operational methods
  • Economical and low-cost processes

ROV inspections are one the most potent and reliable tank monitoring procedures, ensuring the interior is free from corrosion, pitting, or coating failures.

Dive teams are Storage Tank Inspections’ secondary inspection service, traditionally the most practical tank inspection method, utilized primarily when ROV assessments cannot be performed.

This involves physically sending divers inside the water tank to evaluate the water tank and its components individually and manually. We guarantee highly accurate results conducting manned and ROV inspections. Storage Tank Inspections aims to reduce human-related risks wherever possible by recommending our remote solutions.

If pitting, corrosion, and coating failures are discovered during the visual inspection, then NFPA 25 requires additional testing on a drained tank. Our experienced tank inspection specialists have the expertise to perform these other tests if necessary. These other tests are the following:

  • Adhesion Testing
  • Dry Film Thickness Measurements
  • Ultrasonic Thickness Testing on Tank Walls and Tank Bottom
  • Spark Testing / Wet Sponge Testing
  • Vacuum-Box Testing
