ROV operators should soak MicroROVs in freshwater for 24 hours prior to transport between different geographic regions.
Rinse ROVs in clean, fresh water following each dive. This will help remove salt and minimize corrosion of critical components as well as protect against invasive species.
Fresh water is lethal to many marine species, including microscopic organisms that cannot be detected during visual inspection.
Don't transport rinse water between sites.
Having fun in a pool or freshwater tank is a great way to ensure a thorough rinse.
