Removing direct suction systems is Life Saving and is part of our Aquatic Engineering Specialty.

Kimes Engineering works with professional pool contractors who are licensed to build or repair public pools, spas, and water features. In cooperation with owner’s associations, we prepare plans for new projects and modifications to existing projects.

Building a new aquatic facility or renovating an older pool are major decisions that require an inordinate amount of time and capital equipment…doesn’t it make sense to include an expert in aquatic engineering?

We visit the site to document the existing conditions and gather information to create the plan. The plans we prepare contain the necessary information for the permit to comply with Florida building code.

Most owners or managers contact us to prepare the plan in order to obtain the contractor quotes.
When your contractor has completed the construction, we visit again to view the completed work and prepare the operating applications necessary to re-open the pool or spa.

Modifying a pool or spa system with a COLLECTOR TANK causes the pump to draw from the tank instead of the drain. The flow to the collector tank is created by gravity. a COLLECTOR TANK eliminates direct suction. “DIRECT SUCTION” describes a pump which draws directly from a drain in a pool, spa, or wading pool.

The first step toward completing this modification, is getting the required engineered plan.
