The Aqualift System
The Aqualift System requires strict hygiene standards to maintain water quality within potable storages. Our divers wear a variety of dry suits (depending on the climate), full face masks and potable dedicated equipment to carry out all tasks associated with reservoir condition assessment, cleaning and maintenance. Our management system combines Quality Assurance, Environmental Standards, OHS&R and Water Quality Guidelines to comply with the requirements of our clients.
Condition Assessment depends on how well you interpret the available evidence and how concisely and accurately you can deliver the results. Aqualift has performed large-scale condition assessment programs across a variety of disciplines. These include:
- Concrete testing for chlorides and carbonation.
- Appraisal of security, OH&S, water quality and structural issues.
- Protective coatings – their suitability and performance.
- Identification and GIS logging of tanks.
- Setting a series of priorities and benchmarks to each item inspected to allow for easy comparison between assets.
- Storing and delivering the results in a secure, online Data Management System, ASAM RT.
Evidence Based Assessment
Evidence based assessments allow for an holistic approach to managing water assets – clients can use the ASAM System as a stand-alone management tool or they can export the data to upgrade their own software with accurate, analysed information.
Aqualift have been cleaning tanks of all shapes and sizes since 1995. A process has been developed to give clients significant cost savings when compared to just ‘cleaning a tank using divers’. Our equipment has been built in-house and modified extensively over the years to trim vacuuming times to a minimum – staff motivation, safety procedures and our unique potable water training system allows waste water volumes to be reduced.
Waste-water disposal issues are the ‘unseen’ component of any pricing structure, and the overall cost of cleaning a tank can be much higher if an inefficient system is used.
