Clubhouse & Fitness Center
|Report||Clubhouse & Fitness Center Notes|
The Clubhouse Chrirtmas decorations on the interior were put out, a special thanks goes out to the Wellmans and their volenteeres for putting out the tree and decorations throughout the Clubhouse. Redwire has been installing the FIRE SYSTEM troughout the Clubhouse this week and shoudd be complete early next week by Monday or Tuesday 12-21-20 or 12-22-20.
Browns Fitness Services LLC came out and made the necessary repairs to the (KNEE PRESS MACHINE) at the Clubhouse fitness room. Evidently the cable connecter end had pulled off from the cable. The tech (Mike) refastened a new cable end fastener into place to cable as needed. He made the proper adjustments to this equipment for smoother operation.
The Clubhouse is now outfitted with all new exterior lock assemblies with new interior crash bars. This scope of work was performed by CDA Solutions, in a professional workman type manner. The leg press machine in the Clubhouse fitness room is (OUT of ORDER) at this time and the tech was notified. This machine will be repaired on Monday October 19,2020
CDA Solutions (locksmith company) has installed 3 new lock assemblies with crash bars on the Clubhouse rear exterior doors. There is only one exterior lock assembly to install with crash bar (CLUBHOUSE MAIN FRONT DOOR) remaining, and all 12 of the exterior lock assemblies with crash bars have been installed. The Clubhouse main front door is going to need a longer crash bar because this door is wider than the other doors . The necessary hardware has been ordered and will be installed when the parts come in on order. All of the EMERGENCY LIGHTING fixtures were tested and all of them are functioning properly as of 10/01/20.
Pool & Pool Deck

The pool tech from Brevard Pools has been monitoring our swimming pool chemicals and remains on a 3 times per week schedule. He reported to me that each time he visits our Community pool he has to add 10 gallons of Chlorine and one 2pound scoop of stabilizer, or stabilizer when necessary. For instance today 12-18-20 he added the 10 gallons of chlorine and no stabilizer, because the pool chemestry did not need it. He also turned the auto fill back on, because it had been off for some time as I monitored the pools water level. The regular water evaporation was taking place so the auto fill was turned back on. We will continue monitoring the pools chemestry and we will add chemicals as needed.
We are continuing monitoring the chemical and water levels in the swimming pool. We are also continuing the 3 times per week services by Brevard Pools LLC until further notice while we gather / monitor information
We are continuing to monitor the chemical and the water levels of the pool, We have been experiencing the chlorine levels dropping off, we've been adding a bit more stabilizer to help in our efforts / ability to keep the chemicals (CHLORINE) levels normal .I've been testing these levels daily and in constant communication with our pool tech (Daniel) of Brevard pools. Normally this time of year the pool tech only visits us twice a week .Due to this chemical imbalance situation I've had the pool tech remaining his visits to 3 times a week. until further notice.
The pool has been having issues of holding the chlorine levels, a dye test was performed on September 22,2020 to check the pool for leaks of any kind. There seems to be a suspect of a leak in the pool display fountains. These were shut off to determine if there could be water loss from this issue, we also turned off the auto fill to be able to determine if in deed there was any water loss other than normal evaporation. By process of elimination we were trying to monitor any drastic water loss in the pool. The stabilizer levels were a bit low, so stabilizer was added to boost the stabilizer levels. This will allow the chlorine levels to hold longer. The black algae spots are still present but not as prevalent. We will continue to monitor the pool chemical levels daily and we will need to investigate and test the display fountains plumbing probably next month or when the pool swimming traffic slows down somewhat. A new auto fill was installed because the old one had a small leak in the housing itself.
The irrigation controler for PS#1 was not functioning properly and I was not able to remotely control any zones with my cell phone. I reported this to Tuyler Salads of Insite irrigation and he concluded that tjhe temporary repair that was made to this controler antena was indeed failing. The issues must have been repaired because he contacted me and now miraculously I have my remote control abilities back functioning once again Thank you Tyler Salas for the repairs to the irrigation system now allows me to be able to keep water in the South Patrick entrance fountain. Fountain now working.
The mainline break that was behind 710 Montecito Drive has been repaired properly. once the repair had cured 24 hours the system was put back into service. A complete inspection of the repair was made before backfilling the 6" mainline repair. All is well now, PS#2 is back in service and back on the watering schedule. Addressed work orders
Installed sprinklers on new plants pump station 1
Started wet check on pump station 1 and found the wiring issues after zone 9
Repaired wiring issues found while wet checking
We have had issues with PS#2, the metal clamps that hold the filters assemblies in tact fell victim to the elements causing the filter covers to separate (FAIL) and cause a leak and the low pressure alarm from massive flow sensors to cause the system to shut down. Hoover came out this week 10-13-20 and make the necessary repairs to the filter manifold. We then had a leak occur in the 6"main line in the proximity behind 710 Ventura Drive. This leak was located and repaired ASAP Unfortunately the cure time on such a mainline break is 24 hours. While the PS#2 pump station was not functioning a water truck was brought in by Paradise Lawn & Irrigation to water all of the areas of concern that PS#2 normally waters.
There are two zones not functioning from the clock. Zone 2 on the East clock and zone 18 on the West clock.
Repairs found during clock D wet check
addressed work orders

Gault made the necessary repairs to conduits, once completed with the conduit repairs; all new wiring was pulled through the conduits to each and every street light poles and fixtures from Carlsbad Drive, Montecito Drive, and to Simeon Drive.

I came into the Community last evening to do a drive by 10-16-20 to determine which street lights and how many actual street lights were actually not functioning.
