Meridian SubTek manufactures water and battery powered diver operated submersible cleaning equipment for zoos and aquariums. The primary use of our tools is to remove algae from aquatic displays.

Our hydraulic pool scrubbers are powered by filtered high pressure fresh water. Our battery powered equipment is powered by 12 volt rechargeable batteries or stationary low voltage power.

SubTek has a number of standard pool cleaning tool options that are in use today at hundreds of zoos and aquariums throughout the world.
