Floatdown Inspection | Comprehensive Evaluation
The floatdown inspection method is a comprehensive hands-on water tower inspection method. In fact, it is KLM’s specialty. A KLM NACE Coatings Inspector will utilize a sterilized rubber raft to examine the interior structure and evaluate the existing coating integrity while the tank is drained. An inspection report is provided, identifying areas of issue, recommendation, and photos.
