Clubhouse & Fitness Center
|Report||Clubhouse & Fitness Center Notes|
The emergency exit door is in need of weather proofing, (small leak) allowing rain water to breach the interior floor in the area of this door. I contacted a vendor A-1 Glass and Door Company to inspect this problem and make the necessary repairs. I am awaiting his proposal early next week. I also asked him to give us a price to install an EMERGENCY DOOR (crash bar) more appropriate than the one that we have in place now.
The old carpet was removed from fitness room floor and a new rubberized floor system was installed. although a majority of the scope of work has been completed, the vendor has to come back and install a transition strip to isolate the two separate flooring systems. The floor mats that were used underneath some of the fitness equipment were cleaned and utilized in other areas of the Clubhouse. such as in the front door entranceways and on the pool deck shower area
The fitness room will be periodically shut down next week for several days due to the removal of old carpet and installation of new rubber flooring system. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause anyone, but this is a necessary and important time frame needed to accomplish what we are trying to achieve. To offer our residents a clean safe environment to exercise in, and to be able to breath normally without smelling the remnants of the old carpets Oder. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding during this transition period.

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.

Landscaping & Lighting
|Report||Landscaping & Lighting Notes|
Gault Electric LLC. will come out to replace street light on Redondo. They will also be replacing several power supply boxes along the power supply line that feeds power to the fountains at the entranceway of Shearwater Parkway.
These late afternoon and early evening rainfalls have helped tremendously on our water levels of all 6 lakes in Montecito. The Community has a great green appearance lately due to these rains. I give thanks
|Report||Lake Fountains Notes|
All 6 fountains are operating fine at this time. Both exit fountains and one entrance fountain was been put back in service recently. South Patrick entrance fountain is in need of repairs, the Shearwater Parkway entrance fountain in now in service. So 3 out of 4 fountains are functional at entryways / exits. We are awaiting SPIES to come and install the new and larger chlorinators at the Shearwater Parkway entrance / exit. We are at the mercy of their scheduling.
Gates & Walls
|Report||Gates & Walls Notes|
The Shearwater Parkway entrance gate was (OUT of ORDER) not communicating correctly between the Master operator and Slave operator. When this happens the gates come to rest in the open position by design. and by the software configuration set up. The FDC Tech Mike G. found several different issues with these gate operators. Corrosion and electrolysis had set in on the battery posts and connections, causing communication errors and codes to explain the reasons for the gates failure to respond correctly. The batteries lost power as the 24 volt lead had corroded away from it's position on the mother board was another issue. The bad batteries were replaced as needed, and once in place the battery terminals were sprayed with a terminal protector ant to retard the corrosion aspect of this electros is problem. While inspecting the interior of gate operator cabinet, there was evidence of wear and tear on the operator drive belts The drive belts have dry rot and I made the decision to have all 8 drive belts replaced as needed as a preventative maintenance procedure. The Tech of FDC Mike G. explained to me that these belts would have to be ordered and installed upon availability. There are several yoke / type screw down bolt fasteners in need of replacement as well, so I authorized Mike G. to replace these parts as needed. The Shearwater entrance gate is back in service now and functioning properly.
Streets & Sidewalks
Both front of the Clubhouse entrance walkways were pressure washed / cleaned and cleaned rubber mats were put into place for anti-slip precautions.
