Clubhouse & Gym
Pool & Pool Deck
|Report||Pool & Pool Deck Notes|
The pool filtration tank had a fiberglass repair done on the bottom of shell of the reservoir. a three coat application of gel-coat was applied which is normal on this type of repair. After this gel-coat was applied there was an extra time for this finish coat to cure properly. This explains the extra time needed for this scope of work to be completed. Once the adequate time of curing time was accomplished, the new rectangular type grids were installed. Initially they were going to install the rounded type of grids were supposed to be installed, but these type grids are no longer available. So we had the rectangular type ones installed.as needed. Not all of the grids were bad, so we kept the salvageable ones for back ups if we ever need to replace any grids down the road if need be. The system was put back into service, new DE powder was saturated amongst the new grids and the system was purged of any trapped air / which is normal procedure on start up of system. The pool equipment is up and properly functioning at this time 11:30 am. on 10-18-2018.
The swimming pool will be closed Monday & Tuesday, October 15th & 16th to make repairs to the filtration tank. This also includes a new gel-coat finish as needed. The scope of work is being performed by JEWELL'S POOLS. The grids for the filtration will also be replaced with the round type as per their proposal price.
The new suction line was installed by Hoover in Pump Station #2. Both P# #2 and #3 were out fitted with back flush system in order to backwash / clean intake screen when needed..
· We completed all of the approved repairs from Septembers irrigation inspect
· The October irrigation inspection was completed and we will be sending that report over soon
· We have received a pre-approval to make CDD repairs while we are onsite completing our inspection.
· We repaired a mainline outside of the wall along Shearwater.
· We installed 2 spigots were installed along Shearwater.
· Both pump stations and all 4 controllers were inspected.
On Monday we inspected both pump stations and all 4 controllers. Controller C had an alarm on every zone which indicated a 2 wire splice out in the field. We located the wire splice which was over 1,100ft away from the controller at a depth of 5’ deep. It was a small nick in one of the strands that had corrosion. A new section of 2 wire was installed with a splice box.
We have started making the approved irrigation repairs from our September irrigation inspection and will be working on our October irrigation inspection.
This week all of the controllers were checked for alarms. PS#1 on Controller B had a 2 station decoder alarm for zones 22-23 and Controller C had a 2 station decoder alarm for zones 28-29.
We had a mainline break behind 664 Mission Bay. The irrigation for PS#1 was turned off to allow the line to drain. This repair is being completed today. A ball valve was installed, so the water to PS#1 will be turned back on today.
We submitted our irrigation inspection report to GMS, Jason Showe sent over the approval, a PO will be issued for the parts and the repairs will be scheduled.
Landscaping & Lighting
|Report||Landscaping & Lighting Notes|
Five street lights were (Out of order) Throughout the Community, One at the corner of Point Lobos Drive / Monterey, One at Palos Verde / first in off Palos Verde Drive off of Point Lobos Drive South side of street, One at 700 block of Ventura Drive West side of street, one at 138 Montecito Drive, and one at the corner Clemente Drive / Carlsbad Drive . The one at Clemente Drive / Carlsbad turned out to be a loose bulb. All of these other street lights had NEW LED replacement bulbs installed by Gault Electric LLC. All of street lights in the Community are functioning properly now.
The street light painting was started recently
Ponds / Lakes
The ponds are extremely low which is normal for this time of year. The TDS readings will be conducted tomorrow 12/01/2018. Pond samples will be drawn from each pond and the findings will be recorded.
The ponds are extremely low, and we are in much need for rainfall. We are only using one Artisan well from pond #2at this time to help supplement our water shortage. We recently did our pond samples and the readings show a slight elevation in the (Total Dissolved Solids). We are within the levels allowing us to irrigate with our pond waters at this time.
Pond water levels are considerately low, Which is normal this time of year, we could use some help by Mother Nature to deliver us some much need4ed rainfall. Amen!
|Report||Pond Fountains Notes|
All 6 pond fountains are functioning at this time, however, pond #5 has a poor display and will need for the jets to be cleaned soon. Several of the lights for #5 fountain are not luminating properly. The fountains at the entry & exit at Shearwater Parkway have been shut off while the painting of the fountain floors are being painted with a two part epoxy type paint. the side walls which are ceramic tile are being cleaned as well because of ugly stains at water line. This is a must needed procedure, and very time consuming one at that.
All 6 fountains time clocks and lighting clocks were adjusted accordingly to the new time change
We recently had the NEW riser post installed at Pond #1 power supply / control boxes / timer /capacitor housings were all raised for safety reasons and maintenance purposes Scope of work was done by Gault Electric LLC. Pond # 5 recently was not functioning, Checked this out and found the breaker had tripped. Re-energized the breaker, and it has been working properly as I personally inspect daily and make sure that all of the fountains are working and giving the Community a great display. Due to the fact that the ponds are very low at this time of year, I use the display to determine correct water flow. any vegetation can be drawn in the intakes and cause a bad display. All fountains seem to be functioning fine at this time.
A new riser post was installed at Pond #1. This installation was necessary in order to keep water intrusion from getting into the timer box / power control box. This will also make the maintenance procedure easier and more accessible in the future. The riser post is 4' tall and made of 6"X 6" pressure treated lumber
Gates & Walls
|Report||Gates & Walls Notes|
The Christmas decorations were installed on all of the entrances and exits gates.
There is a meeting on 11-14-2018 Where the interior and exterior color schemes will be discussed and voted upon. At the last CDD BOS meeting 10-29-2018 it was voted in to having a service contract with Florida Door Control for Maintenance on the entrance and exit traffic gates. The pedestrian gates will need to be painted because of concrete splashing and concrete sawing dust in areas where concrete repairs and replacement took place by BO's Concrete Company
Soon the exterior wall painting project will be kicking off.
Streets & Sidewalks
|Report||Streets & Sidewalks Notes|
There has been a concrete restoration and replacement scope of work being done in the Community by Don Bo Concrete company. I'm not certain if this job has been completed yet. Probably 90% complete as they still have to pour the pad for the Clubhouse storage shed. This pad will be formed up as soon as Brightview completes their scope of work, tree removal, shrub removal, and capping off irrigation line no longer needed.
The sidewalks TRIP HAZARDS were being addressed today 10-19-2018. The necessary grinding and concrete assessment replacement project is underway. Another Thanks to GMS for staying on task and making things happen to this wonderful Community.
This goes to show that anything is possible, First thing this morning I received a phone call from a good Friend of mine who happens to live in the Community. It went like this RANDY, ARE YOU IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD? It just so happens that I was just entering the Community. Yes Sir I just pulled in WHY? He stated that was a PIG running loose in the Community. I could not believe my eyes ? BUT yes there was a little piglet running loose in around at the corner of Redondo / Ventura. I called the Police Dept. and they were already on their way. What a start to my day. It goes to show (JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE SEEN IT ALL) ??? Never a dull moment at Montecito Beach Club! From DUCKS in the pool to pigs roaming the streets! HEEEE Heee he Amen.
Mr, Wellman and Mr. Ed Henson met with professional landscaping companies to develop a scope o0f work for areas such as the circle and both entrances and exit areas at South Patrick & Shearwater Parkway. We will be expecting 2 proposals from 2 different vendors for this work.
The street light poles / traffic signs / street signs painting project continues and should be done by sometime next week. Another GMS task that has been running smoothly. Thanks again Jason Showe / William / Alan
