Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, Bass Pro Shops currently has 58 locations across the U.S. The stores attract over 75 million visitors a year. Developed as a premier destination outdoor retailer, a portion of each store is reserved for aquatic life displays. Alvine Aquatics was contracted to design a life support systems design for the only Bass Pro salt water tank at the store in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The 11,000-gallon tank includes a waterfall and required tight equipment space requirements and criteria for clear water quality. In order to reach both of these goals, the following life support systems were correctly assimilated:
- Sand filtration
- UV disinfection
- Brine mixing
