Post-dive maintenance

The BlueROV2 is pretty robust and can handle some neglect, but to keep your unit running smoothly for longer, remember to do post-dive maintenance:

  • Always power down your unit before inspecting or handling it
  • Rinse down your ROV with fresh water after every dive
  • Check thrusters for entanglements, like seaweed or fishing line and clean any sand or other debris away from the thrusters

The standard BlueROV2 fits easily into a large plastic storage tub (550 x 420 x 320) if you first detatch externally-mounted lights from the frame.  The storage tub can also double as a rinsing container where fresh water is at a premium.
