The pool pump is operating fine at this time. The two stenner pumps which are responsible for slowly allowing the chlorine to be pumped into the holding tank (reservoir). The pool pump then circulates the water from the reservoir to the pool. These stener pumps Operated 24/7 and Simply were no longer functional'. The motors were completely worn out. The average life expectancy for these units it about 9 months. I saved the old stenner unit, to use for spare parts if needed. All chemical' readings in the pool tested spot on.

The ponds are still low, even though we had some small amounts of rainfall here and there. The artisan well for pond #4 was shut off because the total dissolved solid levels were elevated somewhat. On the recommendation of Mike Knapp (our pond water specialist) that we shut the wen off for now as a precaution because of possible saline Intrusion. Thanks Mike for your expertise in this matter.


We continue to wait for Cascade Fountains schedule to free up soon to that they can service and clean fountain #a jets (acid wash). In doing this we expect a better more uniformed dIsplay. The #4 fountain, directly behind the pool has a direct short. Immediately after energizing the breaker. the breaker trips, it won't stay energiz.ed. Cascade will also service this fountain #4 when they arrive here on site.
