Underwater Banners

Strange request but does anybody know of a printer/process that will allow a banner to be used underwater in a swimming pool where the inks will withstand the chlorine for a reasonable length of time. I have a dive school client that wants to put an image of the seabed on the pool floor when they are teaching.The banners will be used a few times a week, for 2-3 hours at a time.
