Can shorty can be used as underwater tripod?

I am going to build an underwater experimental setup for detecting cracks in underwater concrete. If I build an underwater tank of 200x200x100cm (LxBxH)  filled with water, will shorty can be used as a tripod? Will the tripod stay still without floating?

Re: Can shorty can be used as underwater tripod?

The Shorty may not have the weight you're looking for to be stable underwater, especially if there's any current. It might be possible to attach some additional weights to the legs, but that may not be the best option.


In a small tank, something that locks in to the tank might be a better idea. For example, a Suction Cup mount that can lock onto the sides or bottom of the tank might work better.
