Before fresh water can be made safe for human consumption it must go through a treatment process eliminating bacteria and any other elements deemed unsafe to drink. How does such a process occur and why is it relevant to us?
We’ve written about the use of Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles and pipe crawler systems in storm water systems, sanitation pipes, and water storage basins. A topic into which we have not delved too far to date is the use of Deep Trekker products in water treatment plants.
There are many components in a water treatment plant where having a Deep Trekker mini-ROV and submersible pipe crawler on hand can be highly beneficial to the operators..

As illustrated by the diagram above, there are many components to a water treatment facility. In this post we are going to examine individual components of a plant to highlight how a Deep Trekker mini-ROV and pipe crawler combination can be a very beneficial team for the plant's operator.
The DT340 Pipe Crawler has various wheel options allowing it to fit into pipes ranging in size from 8” to 12”. Using its elevating arm easily centers the crawler's HD camera head in pipes up to 36” in diameter. Visual video inspections can determine pipeline deterioration at the earliest point possible and can be the difference between a quick repair and an expensive replacement.
