FIRE TANK INSPECTIONS

Engaging a dive team to conduct insurance approved three and ten-year fire tank inspections can be a cost-effective solution where additional maintenance is required.  These ongoing inspections are required by law in addition to Fire Service testing on all fire storage tanks to ensure tanks are functional in the event of fire emergency. Often an ROV is utilised to conduct the inspections, but if damage is identified a diver will be required to conduct repairs as a secondary cost. East West

Dive's confined space qualified divers will be able to conduct a detailed 3-year inspection of the fire tanks and simultaneously undertake any debris removal, minor repairs and cleaning.  

10-Year inspections may require a full tank drain and pressure clean in addition to general nspection works.  A fully certified confined space team conduct tank inspections and any additional works including installation of tank liners, replacement of tank base, servicing of valves, roof repairs and
any other maintenance.  East West Dive will co-ordinate and conduct all works with safety and quality being the key focus.

Following the inspection of the fire tanks the administration team will provide a comprehensive report accompanied by digital photographs or, if preferred digital video of the inspection.
