I have been continuing the light fixture restoration project by removing the fixtures that are in need of refurbishment, cleaning off the corrosion / loose paint with wire brush and wire wheel. wash off fixtures, dry, prime and paint. Reinstall each fixture as they are completed. I use this work as filler work, on rainy days and such. Working under the cover of the patio I am still able to get things done. Also at our last workshop on 07-17-2018 there was an power surge that damaged our security system with Sonitrol . The motherboard had been struck by lightning and every door sensor had to be replaced because this caused an issue with every access point would not allow the system to arm up automatically. Due to this factor each and every door contact needed replacement. For several nights after July 17,2018 the Sonitrol system would not arm up and central station would call me out to go and arm up system up manually from the keyboard access point in the fitness room. It was then I made the determination that we needed tech to come out and assess our alarm system damages. Sonitrol made the necessary repairs and the alarm is okay now. A service technician has been dispatched to your location and should arrive shortly. Please note a trip charge and any other applicable service costs will be invoiced to you shortly after the request has been completed.
We will be addressing your Integrated Intrusion & Access Control.
Service Description: Door Issues
Quality service will be performed today by:

The pool is continuing to be treated for black algae as this is will be an ongoing issue until the pool can be resurfaced. This black algae is predominate during the very hot months of the year. July and August are normally when this algae manifests. I believe that sooner than later we need to address this black algae problem.

Pond #1 recently had a new pump motor replacement 7-25-18 by Cascade Fountain Company. While they were here Cascade started acid washing the display jets on fountain #2, but were stopped by torrential rainfall and lightning storm. After speaking with Johnathan Cascades tech on when they would be able to complete the jet cleaning process on fountain #2 he explained to me that they would be here to complete the cleaning on Tuesday July 31,2018.

Superior Fence Company will be here to install fence around pump station #2 on Tuesday July 31,2018. They should complete this scope of work on that day. Pump station #1 has been bid already, we need the Board to approve and okay the fence to be installed around PS #1. If the approval is made at the board meeting on August 1,2018, Superior would be able to schedule this scope of work on PS #1 to be installed on August 2,2018. This task of coordinating both pump stations to be done back to back has been challenging to say the least. Safety is the main issue here folks, and my recommendation is to have this scope of work done ASAP. All of the necessary signage has already been purchased and ready to post upon the completion of fences.
