Project Summary

Client           Island Community
Location Arafura Sea
Colour Standard (Mid-grey)
Area Unknown
Installer Fremantle Commercial Diving


  • A remote island community in the Arafura Sea were running out of drinking water on a regular basis due to severe leaking in their main storage tank. The original sealing compound had failed and the tank was now leaking from just about every seam.

  • Obviously draining the tank for dry repairs wasn’t an option, so divers from Fremantle Commercial Diving flew over and successfully stopped the leaks by applying over 180 litres of Scubapoxy 1725 to every seam in the tank.

  • The commitment to achieving a solution with this particular job was outstanding. Fremantle Commercial Diving chartered two small aircraft to fly over to the island - one with their specialised diving equipment and the other with Scubapoxy product!
