Underwater high-pressure water blasting is a very effective means of cleaning and removing fouling or scale from underwater structures. Typically used as preliminary works prior to visual or photographic inspections of such structures (essentially cleaning surfaces in order to be able to clearly see all parts of the item).
Examples of structures commonly cleaned using water blasting are:
- Pipelines and Intakes
- Commercial vessels
- Bridge piles and piers (road and rail)
- Dam outlet screens
- Wharf structures
