Working Equipment Groups

These Working Equipment Groups dive antique equipment as a hobby and for educational purposes. They incorporate proper safety protocols in all of their activities and insure trained and qualified personnel are on hand at all times. If you are contemplating using antique equipment one of these groups is the best method of diving safely. All equipment is inspected and deemed diveable, and personnel are qualified for diving. Under no circumstances should a piece of equipment be used without thorough testing and safety systems in place.

Other DESCO's

We receive phone calls, Faxes, and e-mails requesting products and information that we don't have. There are allot of DESCO's out there. One recent case of mistaken identity on ebay we were listed as the manufacturer of a fire hydrant wrench. The name DESCO is clearly cast into the head. It was made by the DeSonno Foundry & Machine Co. of Phoenix, AZ. The company is now known as Service Brass.  Below is a list of some of the other DESCO's we have found and what they do.
