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.

did this job yesterday. my main job is an online leak sealer. we fix leaks under pressure while plants are running. and do no welding. can work on systems from vaccuum up to 5000 psi. these are some pics of 2 --600 psi steamleaks. before and after.

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.

That makes the waterline repairs along the roads that I do look like childs play...you certainly have an interesting job.
