TJP has designed a wide variety of aquarium systems ranging from completely closed inland systems which utilize synthetic seawater, to semi-open coastal aquarium systems using natural seawater. In addition to designing the recirculation systems for exhibits, our projects have included the subsystems necessary to support the exhibit life support system (LSS). These subsystems include backwash recovery, artificial saltwater mixing and distribution, potable water pretreatment, vacuum systems, raw seawater intake and treatment, blower air systems, autotrophic denitrification system, special food launching systems and exotic species discharge treatment. All these systems must not only provide clear water for guest viewing, but also maintain an appropriate environment for the animals to enjoy long, healthy lives.
