Municipal Submerged Inspection Equipment

Sewer, storm and clean water pipe inspections

Take control of your asset management

Prioritize maintenance and repairs by routinely inspecting your submerged and buried infrastructure. Deep Trekker makes these inspections easier than ever before with intuitive, portable and cost-effective equipment.

Routine Water Tank Inspections

Deep Trekker’s mini ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) protect divers from dangerous situations and makes routine inspections possible. Deep Trekker DTG3 and REVOLUTION ROVs are submersible robots equipped with state-of-the art HD cameras that provide clear images to a handheld controller. The operator can use the controller to navigate the ROV through the underwater infrastructure with ease.

Accessible Pipe Inspection

Our underwater infrastructure inspection ROVs and pipe crawlers are widely used by municipalities, water treatment facilities, and private contractors. They provide a cost-effective alternative to excavation — and in the case of our pipe crawling equipment, they can reach places that are inaccessible to human inspection. A Deep Trekker product can perform fast, efficient underwater infrastructure inspections of everything from culverts and storm pipes to potable water tanks, sanitation pipes, and much more.

Underwater Maintenance Tasks Made Easy

The time will come when something needs to be repaired, and Deep Trekker ROVs offer a variety of attachments, including a cutter, two-function grabber, and laser scaler that can assess a maintenance or repair job and sometimes complete it without the need for the dive team. The Deep Trekker ROV is a valuable addition to the engineers’ and technologists’ toolbox for maintaining and repairing potable water tanks, bridges, dams and dykes, subsea cabling and more.

Sewer and stormwater pipe inspections

Sewer and stormwater pipe networks are aging around us, making routine inspection a critical part of planning repairs. Traditional methods such as excavating or using pipe crawlers that require large trucks, are complicated to operate and high-cost. Deep Trekker pipe crawlers make inspections more efficient with its portable, battery operated design, allowing you to deploy within minutes.

Cost-saving water tank & tower inspections

Deep Trekker offers cost-effective and safe inspection and cleaning ROVs. Typically, when inspecting or cleaning a water tank, operators are required to drain the tank completely, taking it offline for days at a time. Alternatively, divers have been used to inspect tanks, posing safety and water contamination risks.

Conduct your own reservoir & bridge inspections

Regular underwater inspections of bridges, reservoirs and dams can often be difficult without the use of ROVs. Take control of your own inspections by using Deep Trekker submersible robots to conduct frequent inspections efficiently and safely.

We use this ROV extensively doing pipeline surveys, and for water tower inspections. the maneuverability and portability are huge pluses. and the video quality is better than that on our larger (and much more expensive) unit. overall, an excellent piece of kit.
