working hard

just a couple pics from a job i did recently. had to go underwater and plug off some water pipes so a power plant could change some valves. had to go down about 13' and swim 120' feet through a 4' pipe. kinda freaky at first.

WHOA!!! I could swim down to the pipe but there's no way I could swim into it.

yeah, it is cool. kind of interesting. always something different. we do the leak repair stuff, some diving, hot taps (drilling holes into pipes under pressure, to add onto exsisting systems) and freeze plug pipes.
