In a nutshell, the benefits of an ROV sprinkler tank inspection are numerous. As well as being
cost-effective, it is environmentally friendly because it saves the unnecessary loss of water. It is also practical. There are differing opinions over how often a tank should be inspected in this way. Some experts say once every ten years. Others suggest once a year.

The truth is, regular inspections make it much more likely that defects will be found early on. This has obvious benefits. It gives site operators the chance to extend the life of a tank and reduce the need for replacement.

It is generally accepted that having to invest in a new sprinkler tank is not only costly, it can cause disruption – not just to the supply of water to a sprinkler system but to the smooth running of a site.
