Default 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.

Wow! That would freak me out. I'm way too claustrophobic for that.

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.
