LSS, Life Support Systems for Aquariums


TJP has designed a wide variety of aquarium systems ranging from completely closed inland systems which utilize artificial saltwater, to relatively 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).

LSS, Life Support Systems for Zoos


TJP has designed LSS for virtually every aquatic animal on display in zoological facilities. Water treatment systems for zoological exhibits must consider both the animal waste and the system loading associated with animal activities.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Marine, Amusement & Theme Parks

Marine, Amusement & Theme Parks

TJP and our staff have worked on the ground-up design of LSS for the largest marine parks in Asia, Europe and North America. Our work at large amusement and theme parks spans the range from master planning, thru design, construction and startup of our systems, to retrofit of new features within the original park facilities.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Laboratory and Specialty Aquatics

Laboratory & Specialty Aquatics

TJP has designed specialized water systems for a wide range of laboratory and specialty aquatics facilities. These projects are primarily coastal institutions utilizing natural seawater; however, we have also completed a variety of inland projects utilizing artificial seawater or freshwater including NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory in Texas.

Amphibians & Reptiles

TJP has designed water treatment systems for a wide variety of amphibian and reptile species. Many of these exhibits involve multiple species in the exhibit and the life support system needs to account for a variety of animal requirements.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Amphibians, Alligators, Caimans, Crocodiles, Reptiles, Turtles, Anaconda, and Insect


TJP has designed a wide variety of water treatment systems for avian habitats. Our staff has been a leader in providing engineering of avian water systems ranging from constructed wetlands for migratory birds to Antarctic penguins.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Flamingos, Penguins, Alcids, Puffin, Crane, Stork, Eagle, Sea Eagle

Fish, Sharks & Rays

TJP has designed treatment systems for a diverse range of freshwater fish, saltwater fish, sharks, and rays—ranging from small delicate seahorses and sea dragons to the largest marine sharks and the largest aquarium tanks in the World.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Bass, Piranhas, Tide Pools, Reefs, River, Stream, Cichlid, Rays, Whale Sharks, Stingrays, Shark Eggs, Bait ball, Scorpionfish, Tang, and other fishes


TJP has designed many treatment systems for the wide variety of special requirements associated with invertebrate animals including living corals, jellies, and cephalopods.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Live Coral, Starfish, Jellyfish, Octopus, Crab, Lobster, Weedy Sea Dragons, Leafy Sea Dragons, and Seahorse

Marine Mammals

TJP has designed LSS for every marine mammal on display in marine parks, zoos, and aquariums today including dolphins, polar bears, belugas, sea lions, orcas, walrus, sea otters, and many others.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Dolphin, Manatee, Polar Bear, Sea Lion, Walrus, Sea Otter, Beluga, Killer Whale, Orcas

Terrestrial Mammals

Water features for terrestrial mammals often need to meet requirements ranging from water clarity and debris capture to providing healthy water for the animals. TJP has provided water features for numerous terrestrial mammals and in doing so understands the importance of closely coordinating with zoo architects, exhibit designers, and the owner's team.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Grizzly, Black, Polar, Sun, Brown Bears, Red Pandas, Lions, Tiger, Jaguar, Ocelot, Elephant, Hippo, Otter, Cabybera, Anteater, Moose, Pig, Tapir, Bat, Duiker, Primate, Wild Dogs, Playpus, Kangaroo, and Wallaby

Rides & Effects

TJP staff have designed water treatment systems for a variety of water rides and specialty effects. Our systems maintain water that is safe for human contact and also aesthetically pleasing.

LSS, Life Support Systems for Boat Ride, Manta Coaster, Children's Zoo, Water Play

Specialty Pools

TJP has worked on a variety of specialty pools including NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory and Baja Studios Filming Pools.
