Sea Lion Exhibit

Renovation projects are usually more challenging than new construction since the Life Support System is limited by existing space and services.

The previous Life Support System on this 85,000-gallon Sea Lion Exhibit was designed for fresh water. The chiller was not large enough to chill the water sufficiently and the equipment required daily adjustment.

Biscayne Group replaced all of the equipment including piping, pumps, filters, ozone, chlorination, monitoring, controls, and chiller. The new system is suited for saltwater use. Now that the Sea Lions are in cool, clean seawater, they are happier and healthier than any of the staff can remember. Unfortunately now, they will not leave the pool.
