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.

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. The CDD has approved a proposal for Hoover to inspect and clean the intake screen which is out in the pond. In an effort to insure each zone is receiving adequate pressure we have reprogrammed the controller and each zone is running twice per week, 7 days per week.
A 2 wire splice was located on Monday at PS#1 at Clock B that affected zones 14-56. This was repaired on Tuesday and all zones were up and running.
At PS#1 Clock C we found several decoder alarms. Upon inspection it was determined (3) 2 station decoders and (1) 4 station decoders were likely damaged due to lightning. Decoders are triangle shaped metal boxes and each of these were blown open. All decoders were replaced on Tuesday and zones are operational.
At 354 Point Lobos a bad solenoid was replaced.

We have been primarily leaving the irrilation off due to all of the rain.

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.
