Pool & Pool Deck
|Report||Pool & Pool Deck Notes|
On September 11th, 2018 the power control box failed to operate due to internal overload. unfortunately this particular component had burned up and replacement was inevitable, so the new unit was ordered. While we awaited the arrival of this unit, the pool area was (CLOSED) it was delayed several extra days because of the storm (Hurricane / Tropical storm Florence). American Pump our vendor who takes care of our pool pump needs arrived yesterday 9/20/18 with our new power control unit. All new wiring was pulled through existing conduits as needed to be able to put this new component into service. unfortunately the old wires had burned up and were damaged from the overload situation when the power control unit shorted out internally. The NEW unit was installed and all of the necessary connections were made. The pool pump is now working fine. This particular component (PCU) was installed 4 years ago and this is normal life expectancy of this unit due to the elements in this region are with high saline concentrations in the air. This equipment is in operation 24/7 as circulation to disburse the necessary chemicals is just another duty that the equipment handles day in and day out regularly,
On Sept 11, 2018 the pool pump quit operating. After further investigation I found burnt wiring at the head of the pump control box power strip. I contacted American Pump and they came out today 9/14/18, this was the soonest they could arrive. They made an assessment that this power control unit was (BAD) and in need of replacement. American Pump Company checked their records and found out that they actually had replaced this power supply unit 4 years ago. They explained that getting this unit to allow us service for 4 years was good stretch because of all the salt air / elements we have in this area close to the beach and all. The power unit was ordered and will be installed Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
The chemical feeders are functioning properly at this time.
Remove and replace stenner chemical pump feeders accordingly. The #1 stenner pump was dried out and put back in service. The other stenner pump was rebuilt using an old pump and installed the bottom feeder part to put unit back in service. Both stenner chemical feeders are working fine at this time and seem to be dispersing chemicals at the correct levels.
All of the repairs from the August irrigation inspection have been complete. 2 approved decoders have been installed.
The September irrigation inspection has been completed and will be sent over to Jason Showe for approval once the paperwork has been completed.
All controllers and pump stations were inspected on Monday and no other alarms were found.
3/4 of the approved August repairs have been completed. The rest will be completed next week. We found (2) bad decoders in the SFH and those will be replaced next week. No other alarms on the controllers.
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.
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.
Landscaping & Lighting
Ponds / Lakes
Nothing to report at this time, other than we can always use the rainfall all of the time.
The monthly pond samples were gathered today, and all of the readings are within the parameters to continue irrigating with these ponds waters, The pond levels are a bit LOW at the present. We can always use more rainfall to help in our irrigation matters,
|Report||Pond Fountains Notes|
The display on fountain #3 is not normal. It seems that some of the jets on the display ring are clogged and are simply not dispersing the correct amount of water flow needed for a more uniform display. Cascade Fountain was notified of this issue and should be here early next week to assess this problem.
Fountain #6 has a week display caused by vegetations picked up in impellers, The tech from Cascade Fountain Company (Johnathan) will have to bring the fountain to the side / flip the fountain over though rally clean the vegetation out of impellers one day next week
Gault Electric came today 9/7/18 and inspected and proposed what the costs would be to raise the power control boxes as needed at Pond #1 Fountain #1 as needed. This is the fountain seen as you enter the South Patrick entrance. (BEACH AREA) We await their proposal early next week.
All of the fountains (#!- #6) are operating fine at this time. The fountains at the entrance & exit at Shearwater Parkway needed to be drained, cleaned and put back into service. A new float valve and trigger had to be replaced in the Shearwater Parkway exit fountain. Filled the fountains with fresh water and chemicals as needed, All is well and operating fine now. We continue to wail on a solution to the water supply for the South Patrick entrance and exit fountains.
Gates & Walls
|Report||Gates & Walls Notes|
The entrance gate at South Patrick has been acting up and not opening . This is an intermittent problem / glitch that does not show itself all the time, I powered down these gate controllers / reset and put back into service. After several attempts of this procedure. It works fine. Then without warning it stops operating all together. I believe that one of the relays on the circuit board heats up and won't allow the operator to function correctly. I have put in a service call to FDC and they will be out next Tuesday 9/25/18 to check this issue out. In the meantime I have the entrance operators shut off and the gates are cropped in the open position.
All of the gates hinges were greased this week to make smoother operation and less chattering while in operation.
An assessment was done on entrance gate at Shearwater Parkway for damages that were done several weeks ago. We are waiting on a report from FDC on the findings of their visit on 8/30/2018
Streets & Sidewalks
The street light pole bases have taken much abuse from the landscaping crew hitting these bases with their lawn equipment. Over the years these bases are in need of some repairs. I have purchased materials to make some of the damaged bases (REPAIRS) I counted at least 6 light pole bases that are repairable. It was discussed that the ones that simply can not be repaired, to remove the damaged bases all together and just paint these ones as is. I would like to at least try the repairs first.
Secured bases to several street sign poles, caulk, prime and paint bases as needed
Both fountains at the entrance and exit at Shearwater Parkway areas were brushed and chemicals were replenished at the feeders as needed. Several street signs bases have been refastened to sign pole. cleaned up and primed (BLACK) for future paint scheme black
