I am looking for a cave diver to help with a project!

I'm wanting a field-telephone wire running though a couple of submerged tunnels so that we can have voice-comms for a project that's on the go.

Quite a simple thing I'd have thought, vertical depth probably about 6 meters at the most, maybe about 100m length. Not constricted.

Anybody up for this? North Wales area Smile

Just buy yourself an air tank.
How hard can it be?

For the price of a tank and reg you could get 10 or 11 sets of drain rods from the folk who promise to fix your screws Laugh
No training issues and you won't get that wet.

Never do yourself what you can get someone else to do.

Besides, I don't like getting wet Laugh

A wonderful idea, but alas the topography is against me for drain rods.

A megawatt container generator, 12 barrels of cherry and a monster submersible pump would handle the job of lowering the North Wales water table nicely.

There was a time as a teenager I'd have probably done it with a snorkel. Now I can barely even swim!
