Cleaned and polished the bike racks with stainless steel treatment spray, around the Clubhouse. (1) in front of the game room entrance in the very front of the Clubhouse, and (1) at the East side gate of the swimming pool, (1) at the West side gate of the swimming pool. (1) as noted in the playground info. just outside of the playground. Per Randy McGrath (DFS).


The pool re inspection passed 06-03-2021 after the ladder repair was made by Brevard Pools LLC. The Chemicals were checked and found to be spot on, and the pool pump is operating at 350 GPM. The Phosphate treatment was successful and also done by Brevard Pools Company LLC. The only issue to report about the pool & pool deck is that one of the umbrellas was damaged by winds gusting from one of the rain storms that happened over the Memorial day weekend. This umbrella was removed from the pool deck on Sunday afternoon 05-30-2021 and was taken to have a new umbrella frame installed , at Palm Casual on South US 1 on Tuesday 06-02-2021. I opted to purchase a new frame without the tilt capability because the tilt nuckle simply won't handle the elements of salt air exposure, or the bursts of winds that sometimes accompant afternoon rain storms. This umbrella also had issues with the tie-straps being frayed. so the canopy will need new tie-straps sewn into the umbrella canopy as well at N/C to us because of warranty protection. Palm Casual will contact us when the repairs are complete and the umbrella is ready to put back into service. Per Randy McGrath (DFS).
