Where can I find a contractor the performs internal Water Storage tank inspections per NFPA 25?
The customer is have difficulty as the local contractors do not perform these inspections because of the age of tank and liability. The contractors I have spoken with say that the tank is not large enough to put divers in. The dimensions are approximately 25 -30 foot diameter, and approximately 25-30 feet in height. Then the contractors say due to the age of the tank there is a liability they are not willing to take on. One contractor suggested finding a company that uses drones.
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
