Irrigation System Information
The irrigation system is comprised of three (3) pump stations and is separated into five (5) irrigation controllers for all common areas and residential homes. The irrigation system is supplied water from onsite ponds. As of January 2019, irrigation is monitored by Irrigation Insights. Issues found are turned over to landscaper to correct issue and respond back.

2-Wire Irrigation System
Montecito uses am industry standard two-wire decoder system. Troubleshooting the two-wire decoder system can be time consuming and requires strict schedule adherence by the landscaper. Beginning in January 2019, Irrigation Insights began electronically monitoring irrigation issues via new software controllers acquired by the District. This should eliminate most of the time consuming troubleshooting. Irrigation Insights provides weekly reporting of issues found to the landscaper for correction. Issue type and location are provided.

Irrigation inspection clock B and repairs
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. Perform Visit 2 of Preventative Maintenance per Contract. Serviced all hydraulic pilot components, flushed
Completed irrigation task week of 8/9/19
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.
