What Saturation Diving is Like [Video]


Saturation diving was invented by the oil industry to allow their divers to work on pipelines and structures deep below the surface without the need for extended hours of decompression.  It would take about 6 days of decompression for one day of diving at these extreme depths. With saturation diving the divers can complete multiple dives and need to decompress only once.
