All,

This week Insight went back and tested all of the failed zones on clocks A-C and some of the zones with flow “concerns.” Here are the results https://www.easymapmaker.com/map/Montecitocdd.

Zone 54 on clock B, which waters the roundabout in front of the clubhouse, is the only zone on clocks A through C that does not operate from the timer. All other zones are working.

We were not able to test clocks D or E this week since both clocks are shorted. I know Paradise Lawns was on site yesterday searching for the short on clock E. Let us know if there are any questions or concerns.

Thank you for updating the map. I noticed that zone 54 shows as no flow I believe this is because well station 2 provides the water for this zone. Next time you run a test will you try zone 54 on clock B with well station 2.

We are working to resolve the problems on clock D and E rain has been hindering us this Week while working on electrical issues I will notify everyone when they are back up and running. I tried testing zone 54 and watching for flow on Pump station 2. You are correct. It is getting water from pump station 2 somehow. Very strange because it did not used to be that way.

Completed irrigation task week of 8/9/19
Wet check inspection on clock A
Repair main line break behind 658 Monterey. The water pushed a large amount of dirt into the pond that was removed, put back and regraded.
Repair sewer lines at 364 Point Lobos
Moved irrigation valves on to CDD property and reattached the lateral lines at 315 Point Lobos Insight irrigation tested controller C yesterday. All zones had flow. The results can be seen at https://www.easymapmaker.com/map/Montecitocdd.

With all the rain lately, I am making sure that the system is not running. I just saw that there is a flood advisory for Satellite Beach. I don’t think irrigation needs to run for the next few days at least.

The rain sensor on pump 1 seems to have gone bad. I have made Hoover aware. Let us know if there are any questions or concerns.

The pictures below are of the valves that were relocated, the broken main line and the area that was regraded.

Worked on wiring faults on clock B and completed repairs on zones 7,8,9,30,and 40.

Rerouted the Mail line for new pool at 315 point lobos.

Inspection on clock B.

08-02-2019

Insight tested controller B this week. The following zones failed:

Zone 4 (727 Palos Verde) Brandon Dietrich informed me that they are having some trees/bushes removed so they can access the valve for zone 4.

Zone 54 (roundabout in front of clubhouse)

Zone 57 (269 Montecito).

Zones 16 (315 Point lobos) and 19 (rotors on pond) on clock B are having work done on the pipes so I labeled them as “pools” for now, meaning those zones are down temporarily for repairs. All,

Pump station #3 is currently in rain shutdown. The rain sensor on Pump #1 did not put the system in rain shutdown this morning for some reason. Just be aware.

I am going to request that Hoover take a look at the rain sensor on that pump.

07-26-2019

All,

A couple things have happened and I want to make sure everyone is in the loop.

Paradise found the valve behind 717-731 Ventura throttled down. That building is receiving water again.

Paradise has been working on rerouting/repairing pipes for pool installs.

Pump #1 did not operate last night because the butterfly valve was left closed overnight.

Once the butterfly valve was reopened, one of the places where the pipe was rerouted/repaired came apart.

Insight has been testing timer A today. We will have the results posted on the map by tomorrow. Will email everyone with the updated results.

Nothing to report at this time. No report given by Paradise Lawn & Irrigation this week. Irrigation Manager is not in the office today.. Sorry for the inconvenience, Paradise will not be able to send this weeks report today..

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions..

05-31-2019

This week we did A wet check on clock d which is the new construction area. A few broken heads and clogged nozzles.
Noticed a lot of hot spots on the property and Tyler informed me of a couple of “ no flow zones” 279 Montecito . The timer showed some alarms on certain zones so I’m checking to see if it’s a wire issue and if those zones are running automatically. I will be there today, Friday, to evaluate the issue further. I will try and catch up with you before I leave and let you what the findings are. PS#2 has a bad #1 motor (bearings are shot) HOOVER would not install refurbished 10 h/p motor because they did not want to install a rebuilt unit (motor). I contacted American Pump Company and they agreed to do the install. American Pump Company should be here Saturday June 1, 2019 or at the latest Monday June 3,2019 to do the #1 pump motor at PS #2.

05-24-2019

This week we ran our wet check on pump 2 clock d. No real issues with that part besides a few heads and nozzles.
Also we concentrated on Shearwater Dr. Several broken off heads and several clogged nozzles. There is 2 1/2” stub up on the road side of the sidewalk that was broken off, I fixed it. The pots were also redone after the the new plants were installed with micro sprays.
Guysers along Carlsbad were fixed, we fixed the pipes under the porch at 131 redondo and rerouted some broken lateral lines under a bird of paradise plant at 304 point lobos. HOOVER came out and checked out the noise coming from PS#2 and found that one of the motors was bad (NEED of REPLACEMENT). I explained to tje Tech Jason from HOOVER that we have a rewound & rebuilt pump motor in storage ready to install. Due to the fact it was late in the day, Jason told me he would have to schedule this pump motor swap early next week. The PS#2 can operate with the one pump motor until the replacement takes place.

05-20-2019 Addendum Irrigation Report

Addendum irrigation report from 05/17/2019: This week we did our weekly wet checks and we took care of clock C which is all the homes on point Lobos drive and Monterey Drive..

I was in contact with Tyler from Insight and he informed me of the few zones that had high flow. On the end of the perimeter wall on the outside on shearwater zone one clock D was a high flow zone and I fixed a gushing head and repaired and exposed bubbler line that had been cut.

I was in touch with the technician from Brevard lawns who is installing the irrigation on the new homes on Redondo Drive . Installed an electric valve on the last townhome and I was able to put it on the timer activating it automatically.

South Patrick entrance north end I replaced a broken head by the wall and an exposed lateral line that have been broken along the ditch line flooding into the ditch.

The walkway to the park from Monterey Drive I fixed a broken lateral line under the mulch that has been flooding the sidewalk. I also fixed a tree bubbler that had been cut along the sidewalk.

On Montecito drive next to the pump station on the city strip in between the sidewalk and the street had a broken lateral line due to pool construction of the house on the corner. That was repaired and several heads were cleaned out.

Approximately 10 work orders were closed out ranging from a leaky head, to poor coverage, to I don’t know if my yard is on the timer.

I am here now (Friday) looking into a few things from Tyler and checking a few work orders. Report written by Mike Billquist (tech from Paradise Lawns & Irrigation). Thanks Mike

05-17-2019

I wanted to touch base with you about the irrigation work this week. We are doing wet checks every week so we have been servicing one clock per week. Last week was clock A and this week we did clock B. I have been trying to focus on the larger issues like zones not activating or high flow zones. Tyler has been very helpful in finding problem areas. Working off his report I was able to locate three zones that were not active due to a bad decoder. 696 and 686 palos verde and the common area behind them both had not been getting any water and are now active. We also took care of some work orders and requests from William. The gushers in the city strip on Carlsbad were also replaced.
Next week is the same plan, clock C, take care of current work orders, and solve the next "no flow" problem(s).
See you then,

04-19-2019

: Paradise Lawns & irrigation has been diligently working on trouble-shooting irrigation issues at 404 Point Lobos Drive, 656 Palos Verde Drive, and 649 Monterey Drive (NOT WATERING). They are repairing these and many other irrigation issues on Carlsbad Drive too. The Pump Station #1 concrete reinforcement project has been completed.

04-12-2019

: The concrete reinforcement project was formed up, poured, and finished this week on Pump Station #1. On 4/12/19 at 9:00 pm. there was a major vertical line break reported in the SF homes section at 678 Monterey Drive (rear) of property control box area. This repair was made by Paradise Lawn & Irrigation company promptly and professionally. The status of the geysers on Carlsbad Drive is ongoing, I received no report?

04-06-2019

: There is a major leak was reported at the rear property of 686 Palos Verde Drive (Robert Schweiger residence). I shut the power supply was shut off due to this after-hours emergency, I contacted Tyler Salas of Insight’s Irrigation Manager/ monitor to make him aware of the situation and status of PS#1. There have been several geysers reported on Carlsbad Drive and Paradise Lawn & Irrigation Co. have been diligently locating and repairing issues of stuck valves on the 700 block of Ventura Drive. I believe that in due time these geysers will be repaired ASAP. I’m not certain who put a lock assembly on PS#1 main water control valve, but this info should have been communicated with Ed Henson, William V., Jason Showe or myself Randy McGrath.

03-30-2019

: All,
What appears to have happened is someone has opened a gate valve somewhere on the property so now pump stations #2 and #3 are linked.
Pump #2 has been off almost all day but pump #3 was on and the master valve was open because Blue h2o is out there working. So that zone was running off of pump #3.
Alex from BV said he throttled the valve down at that zone on Ventura but it still was not preventing water. I spoke to Blue h2o and I asked them to please turn pump #3 off when they’re done for the day so that this zone does not continue to run.
Once Paradise on property Monday, we should ask them to address this gate valve and then take a look at this valve to see what the problem is. Thanks
Tyler Salas – Irrigation Manager

03-23-2019

: The concrete jacking or pumping for PS #1 will begin soon. We continue to wait for HOOVER to address the issue of flange leaking inside of PS#2 pump housing. PS#3 has added a new watering ZONE in the common areas behind the first housing unit on Carlsbad Drive. This ZONE was added to the watering clock by Brevard Lawn & Irrigation Company; I will be meeting with Tyler Salas on Monday March 23, 2019 to determine exactly what area this ZONE covers and label it in the system. I will be meeting with Superior Fence Company on April 2,2019 to get a bid for putting a fence around PS#3 as needed. I will order the correct signage for this PS#3 gated area.

03-16-2019

: The PS #2 was turned off because of a mainline break at the North east corner pond #6 in the undeveloped area Clemente Drive / towards Simeon Drive. This repair was made by Brightview and PS #2 was turned back on after the correct curing time of the repair. I was adjusting the timer for fountain #4 lighting because of time change, when I noticed water coming out of the PS #2 housing. Evidently parts were ordered by HOOVER pump company, and we await the arrival of the parts. A plastic covering was installed over the electrical components by Brightview. Although PS #2 has this leak issue, this PS #2 can continue to operate until the repair takes place.

03-08-2019

: Pump station #3 ZONE #24 clock E not communicating with Insight programing. After investigating this issue, it was indicated to me by Tyler Salas that a control box on the North side of Redondo Drive, approximately from 104 Redondo Drive all the way to Carlsbad Drive were affected. The control valve had been screwed down for reasons unknown. Once the valve was opened and ZONE E was programed to the watering cycle, all is well now ZONE 24 is now functioning fine.

02-15-2019

: The only thing to report is the main line was relocated at the Wilson residence rear of property 689 Monterey to be able to excavate for swimming pool installation. The irrigation system for the SFH was (SHUT-OFF) during this procedure / curing of pipe as well.

02-09-2019

Nothing to report at this time.

Zone #13- Leaking HOA heads replaced
Zone #45- Leaking HOA heads replaced
Zone #48- Replaced broken 6” Rotor

Clock C
Zones 3,4,5- Replaced decoder and wiring
Zone #16- Leaking HOA heads replaced
Zone #25- Leaking HOA heads replaced

Clock D
Zone #40- Replaced decoder and wiring
Phase # 3: A irrigation break was reported at rear of property 113 Redondo Drive. This repair was made by Brevard Lawns & Irrigation Co. The cost of this repair has put this burden on the CDD. The damage to the irrigation system very well could have been done due to the enhancements done on the rear of 109 Redondo Drive townhome. In the process of doing this scope of work the concrete contractor hired by Mr, Levow had driven his vehicle with a trailer attached to it to drive on the CDD easement without permission to be able to remove the concrete waste from the rear of 109 Redondo Drive. Unfortunately, by traveling over this area the irrigation lines / spray head was damaged. Mr. Levow was made aware of these repair charges on 02/06/19. These are very unfortunate circumstances and the CDD hopes that everyone involved in this dilemma understands our position here at the CDD going forward. Thank you, Randy McGrath (FMCA).

02-01-2019

This week we completed the minor irrigation repairs per pre approval from our last inspection.

The mainline, 2 wire and valves were moved in the SFH section ahead of the swimming pool installation.
Main line break on irrigation system #3 South East corner at Montecito Drive and Carlsbad Drive. This was done while electrical contractor was excavating to install conduits for future purposes. The electrical contractor made the necessary repairs to 4"main line , This repair will need to be inspected by Brevard lawn& irrigation dept. When this system is re energized on Monday Dec.17,2018.

11-30-2018

The new suction line was installed by Hoover in Pump Station #2. Both P# #2 and #3 were out fitted with back flush system in order to backwash / clean intake screen when needed..

11-09-2018

· We completed all of the approved repairs from Septembers irrigation inspect

· The October irrigation inspection was completed and we will be sending that report over soon

· We have received a pre-approval to make CDD repairs while we are onsite completing our inspection.

· We repaired a mainline outside of the wall along Shearwater.

· We installed 2 spigots were installed along Shearwater.

· Both pump stations and all 4 controllers were inspected.

10-19-2018

On Monday we inspected both pump stations and all 4 controllers. Controller C had an alarm on every zone which indicated a 2 wire splice out in the field. We located the wire splice which was over 1,100ft away from the controller at a depth of 5’ deep. It was a small nick in one of the strands that had corrosion. A new section of 2 wire was installed with a splice box.

We have started making the approved irrigation repairs from our September irrigation inspection and will be working on our October irrigation inspection.

10-12-2018

This week all of the controllers were checked for alarms. PS#1 on Controller B had a 2 station decoder alarm for zones 22-23 and Controller C had a 2 station decoder alarm for zones 28-29.

We had a mainline break behind 664 Mission Bay. The irrigation for PS#1 was turned off to allow the line to drain. This repair is being completed today. A ball valve was installed, so the water to PS#1 will be turned back on today.

We submitted our irrigation inspection report to GMS, Jason Showe sent over the approval, a PO will be issued for the parts and the repairs will be scheduled.

10-05-2018

We installed the approved new decoder for zones 22-23 on PS#2. No other alarms were found on the controller.

On PS#1 we found no alarms on controller A, on Controller B we found a bad 2 station decoder (zones 22-23). On Controller C we found a bad 2 station decoder (zones 28-29).

The proposal for replacement of these decoders has been approved and are scheduled for installation next week.

The mainline reroute has been completed and normal Irrigation schedule will resume this evening.

A PO for approved decoder for zones 22-23 will be issued on Monday and the decoder will be installed on Monday.

09-21-2018

All of the repairs from the August irrigation inspection have been complete. 2 approved decoders have been installed.

The September irrigation inspection has been completed and will be sent over to Jason Showe for approval once the paperwork has been completed.

All controllers and pump stations were inspected on Monday and no other alarms were found.

09-14-2018

3/4 of the approved August repairs have been completed. The rest will be completed next week. We found (2) bad decoders in the SFH and those will be replaced next week. No other alarms on the controllers.

09-07-2018

PS#2 HOOVER brought in their diver and reported that the 6" suction line will need to be replaced ASAP because of voids / breaks in this line.. It seems that the intake suction stub has failed because it is to close to the bottom of the pond floor causing low pressure to irrigate efficiently. HOOVERS recommendation is a total replacement of the intake suction line and the automatic flush feature will also need to be replaced as well. we are waiting on a proposal price on what this will cost. This explains why PS#2 has been not being able to function properly, due to low pressure.

08-31-2018

There was no report turned in to us about the irrigation systems. This is unusual and unexpected because of all of the issues that we've been experiencing lately. We await the findings and report from HOOVER on what was found after their inspection of the PS #2 intakes situation? This week we finished our approved July irrigation repairs and our August irrigation inspection. Once the paperwork is completed I’ll be sending the report

To the CDD for approval.

We replace 2 decoders on PS#1 on Clock C.

A mower cut the exposed 2 wire at the end of Clemente and Alex came out and repaired.

Both pump stations and filter rings were inspected and found to be in working order.

08-24-2018

We checked both pump stations and all 4 controllers for alarms. Both pump stations were operational with no alarms.

Pump station #2 is still only irrigating 1 zone at a time, so luckily Mother Nature is helping us. Hopefully the Hoover diver will be out to inspect and clean the

Suction line intake and we will be back to regular capacity.

We found a couple decoder alarms of PS#1 controller C, these zones were on the East side of Monterey drive. We replaced a 2 station decoder and a 4 station decoder.

We have almost completed our August irrigation inspection and July repairs. Once the inspection is complete, I’ll send over the inspection report to the CDD for approval of repairs.

08-17-2018

We inspected both pump stations and all 4 controllers and found no alarms.

PS#1- We repaired the approved mainline leak between zones 4 and 5 on Controller C and reconstructed the 4 valves. After the repair had cured and the mainline was pressurized, the next weak spot in the mainline blew. The line was opened up and drained overnight, we returned on Friday to repair and irrigation for PS#1 is back online.
PS#2- We are still waiting for Hoover to inspect and clean the Pump intake screen in the pond. Once full pressure has been reestablished we will resume our normal irrigation schedule. We normally operate 2 programs at a time which allows us to run 2 irrigation zones at a time, yet with the pressure issues we are only capable of operating 1 program and 1 zone at a time.

We will be completing the approved July irrigation repairs and completing our August irrigation inspection next week

08-10-2018

Pump station #2 was found tripped and was reset on Monday. All zones are operational, however we are having pressure issues while the system is running through the normal programming.

Hoover came out and attempted to repair the leaking filter at ml, however due to the location of the leak and the amount of rust on the bolts, he has to return with more parts. There is a chance that the bottom section of the filter housing has cracked and would need to be replaced. The only way to know for certain will be when he takes the whole thing apart. Due to all the fresh water fimng the ponds, the pond levels are looking much better and the rain also helps the water quality we are irrigating with.

Irrigation pumps: SFH/TH, there have been so many variables pertaining to both irrigation systems, from wire breaks and to underground main line breaks in the installation process of two swimming pools in adjacent homes. The TH irrigation system has been interrupted recently from equipment failure (BAD #1 Motor) electrical components heating up and shorting out internally. These are unforeseen issues even though they are unfortunate circumstances are frustrations are many in maintaining the irrigation system. We have a maintenance agreement in place with Hoover Pumps as we find ourselves at their mercy and maintenance schedule. Brightview only handles the smaller type issues like sprinkler heads and wire issues and irrigation line repairs. The equipment at the pump stations are Hoovers responsibilities and depending on how major the repairs become determines if Brightview is able to make the repairs or not. Thanks goes out to the community for their patience and understanding in this manner.
