Clubhouse & Fitness Center
|Report||Clubhouse & Fitness Center Notes|
The Clubhouse has a booking this Saturday June 15, 2019 from 1:00 pm. to 6:00 pm. (A Baby shower)
The painting of the exterior walls of Clubhouse shed was completed. The roof of shed will need to be painted (brown) to match the trim and doors. I will need to rent some scaffolding in order to complete this task safely.
The signage explaining to NOT crop doors open in the fitness room was installed several weeks ago. Evidently this ticket was not closed out, The painting of the exterior of the shed continues, the exterior walls are nearly completed, but the roof will need to be done. In order to complete the painting of the roof I will need to pick up scaffolding needed to complete this scope of work safely.
Painting of the exterior of shed continues the East side of Clubhouse.
Pool & Pool Deck
|Report||Pool & Pool Deck Notes|
The posts that used to hold the safety equipment were removed from the flower beds rear of the pool and the safety equipment were relocated and fastened to the East and West return fence areas.
Made adjustments to new Stenner pump to disperse the chlorine chemicals correctly and evenly with the marantic acid feeder. Both Stenner pumps are dispersing evenly now. The ping-pong table super structure was cleaned of rust and painted (BLACK) to be able bto get more life out of this table. I researched this, replacement cost to replace this particular table is approximately $1100.00
The flowering pot areas of the pool deck have been cleaned of any plant life and root systems. The Stenner pump that feeds the Chlorine to the pool system went bad and the chemical tubing that transfers the Chlorine to the system was clogged with calcium deposits. I replaced the bad Stenner pump and pulled a new tubing chlorine feed line though one inch diameter housing pipe that runs from Stenner pump to the outer chlorine reservoir well. I adjusted the chlorine feed amounts according to the desired flow needed to disperse the chemicals (CHLORINE) properly.
The removal of plant life along the back side of pool deck took place on Friday 05/24/2019. The beautification & enhancement project is underway and should be completed in the next several weeks once the irrigation system has been reworked and functional. The new cushions for the chase-lounges, and chairs have been ordered by are very own Chairman Larry Bradshaw, A special thanks to Larry for taking the time and effort in picking out these colorful cushions that should last because not only are they colorful but they are also durable as well.

Landscaping & Lighting
|Report||Landscaping & Lighting Notes|
The street light that was not functioning at the Shearwater entrance East side closest to the roadway (Shearwater Parkway) was retrofitted with the new style LED type by Gault Electric Company.
The East side Street light at the Shearwater entrance closest to roadway was retro fitted to the new LED type light system.
Street light needs replaced entrance of Shearwater Parkway East side closest to roadway. Gualt Electric was notified of this and we await their scheduled service call.
There is a street light out of order at the East side of the entrance closest to Shearwater Parkway. Gault Electric was notified of this and should be out next week to replace this bulb assembly.
The Lakes were treated for vegetation issues (Hydrilla) by American Eco Systems. They will return and retreat in 2 weeks according to laws of the State of Florida that they must have a 2 week grace period between treatments.
The Pond #1 reservoir well was outfitted with a control valve to be able to lower and raise water levels of all of the interconnected ponds. This is an attempt to conserve and utilize our rainwater more efficiently.
All of the ponds were treated for vegetation (HYDRILLA) and algae this day Friday May 31, 2019. Now that the overgrowth of plant life has been removed from around the transfer well at Pond #1 I can retrofit a 2" or 3" control valve to allow us to hold more water in our ponds accordingly to rainfall amounts allowable. When closed it will allow us to contain more water in ponds and when opened we can lower water levels accordingly to run off. I believe this is what we're trying to achieve. I will attempt this next week now that I can see the pipe fittings. Pond samples were taken this day 5/31/2019 and recorded and the TDS readings are stabilized to have stayed the same.
|Report||Lake Fountains Notes|
All 6 Lake fountains are working fine at this time.
Fountain #5 had a new pump / motor assembly and capacitor box installed. Fountain #5 is now functioning fine at this time.

Gates & Walls
|Report||Gates & Walls Notes|
FDC came out and checked out the Shearwater entrance gate. I had explained to their tech Paul that I hade tightened down the yoke assembly that had became loose from vibration from the normal chatter gates produce from continuous operation causing the Master and Slave gates to lose one another and throw a malfunction code of (OVER TRAVEL). By tightening the yoke assembly down to its correct position repaired the issue of the gates being out of rhythm (sequence). Paul told me that I had corrected the problem, because he could not get the gate issues to repeat this malfunction. I summoned FDC to make sure that what I had done corrected this problem.
I contacted FDC about the entrance gate at Shearwater is acting up. They'll be here on Monday June 1,,2019 to check this issue out.
