With the resumption of summer, the bathing season begins, when people go swimming and spend time on the water. Sometimes, unfortunately, vacationers come to drown their valuables while swimming, walking on footbridges or relaxing by the water. In the summer, we receive calls and e-mails about lost and drowned gold items, mobile phones, gopro cameras and whenever possible we take valuable things out of the water at the customer's request. The search is usually done with the help of a diver and an underwater metal detector.
To successfully conduct an underwater search with a diver you need to know
- Place of disappearance (The more accurate the better)
- Soil composition (Sludge thickness 5-10 cm)
