The pool chemical levels are spot on even though we had that much needed rainfall the chemicals held steady. The pool pump is pumping 350 GPM, which is spot on.. I let the pool water level down twice this week due to an adequate amount of rainfall. Pool plant life is thriving on and around pool deck. The pool lighting has been back into service per codes of County & State requirements, also the City of Satellite Beach codes as well.

10-25-2019

All the chemical levels were spot on and the circulation flow is at 350 GPM also spot on. Hibiscus plants in large planters on pool deck were fertilized on 10/21/19 These plants are thriving and doing quite well after bouncing back from the Army worm attack and the inclement weather from the hurricane.

10-18-2019

We received a proposal from SPI$ES for the swimming pool resurfacing / scope of work to complete, this also includes new LED lighting for the pool

10-11-2019

Pool pump and pool equipment operating fine at this time. All of the pool chemical readings are spot-on and the flow rate to the pool equipment is operating at 350 GPM. This is perfect;

All of the street lights are functioning properly as I did a night sweep of the Community. The lights in front of the Clubhouse needed the timer to be adjusted to the new time change. All is well now.

10-25-2019

Last evening I did a drive through of the Community after dark and did san inspection of all street lighting, I'm happy to report that all of the street lights are in good working order.

10-18-2019

7 street lights (OUT OF ORDER) 2 on Clemente Drive, 1 on Ventura Drive, and 4 on Redondo Drive, all the way down to the mail box area on Redondo Drive. Gault Electric LLC came out on 10/14/19 and investigated this issue and found that the photo cell functioning fine, but the transformer / relay contacts had burnt up and were in need of replacement. These street lights were on the same series / cicuit of power grid. They did not have the necessary parts to make the repairs on their truck, so they went to pick up the contacts as needed and installed them. These repairs took place in the area of Pump Station #2. All the street lights are functioning fine now.

10-11-2019

There is a street light out of order at the intersection on Montecito Drive & Ventura Drive. Gault Electric LLC has been notified of this outage and is scheduled to make the necessary repairs on Monday October 14,2019. There was also a ticket generated in the Community of a half a dozen street lights not functioning on Redondo Drive in the Phase #2 section of he Townhomes all the way to the Redondo Drive mail box area. I inspected the photo cell that operates that section of street lights and found it functioning fine. I could here and see that it's engaging fine, this makes me believe that there is something else gone bad (suspect) perhaps a small transformer? Gault Electric LLC is scheduled out first thing Monday morning to check it out and make the necessary repairs

Lakes

Report Lake Notes
11-08-2019

All of the lakes received some much needed rainfall. This is always great news, and this helps the saline count in the lakes as we irrigate out of 3 of the 6 lakes that we have here at the Montecito Community. The TDS levels were checked earlier this month 11/1/19 and the TDS levels have been stabilized, and these steady down pours of rainfall are very welcome.

Lake Fountains

Report Lake Fountains Notes
11-08-2019

All of the lake fountains are functioning properly and the lighting timers were adjusted accordingly to the new time change as needed. The fountain in Lake Valencia has been tripping the breaker periodically, but nothing to be alarmed about. I'll continue to monitor this fountain but it only tripped the breaker once this week, this could have been from a power surge of some sort. My eyes are on this issue, last week it had tripped twice in that week. Only once this week? Subject a weak breaker in need of replacement. We're at a wait and see juncture. The entrance / exit fountains at Shearwater parkway & South Patrick had service this week, the chlorinators internal strainers were cleaned and (4) 3 chlorine pucks were added to the chlorinators as needed. Also a splash of liquid chlorine 16 ounces and a small amount of marantic acid 1/3 cup was added to each fountain reservoir / basin

10-25-2019

Twice this week I had to reset the breaker at the fountain in Lake Valencia. I'm not sure at this point whether or not we need to replace this breaker. But It has not tripped the breaker in several days now, I've been monitoring this fountain. As I was doing my drive through after dark yesterday doing the street light report, I also surveyed that all fountains were functioning just fine and all fountains lighting was lit up last night. Great news right. Amen.

10-18-2019

All 6 lake fountains are functioning fine at this time, and all fountains at the entrances / exit are functioning fine also. The entrance /exit fountains received service of fresh 3"" chlorine pucks into the chlorinators, a slash of liquid chlorine in fountain basins / reservoirs along with a small amount of marantic acid as well. I also cleaned the strainers in the chlorinators as needed. This procedure is done by me Randy McGrath twice a week to keep the water from creating algae / staining and manifesting in the fountain basins / reservoirs. All is well.

10-11-2019

The Shearwater Parkway Entrance Fountain was found over-full in the reservoir/ basin area. After investigating the situation, I found that the auto-fill valve had come apart causing the water supply to continuously fill the basin / reservoir until the water was over-flowing out of the fountain all together. I shut off the water supply valve that feeds this fountain and lowered the water level by opening the basin/ reservoir drain valve. once the water was at a operating level , I closed the drain valve. I contacted William V. and explained my findings. He then contacted SPIES Pool & Fountain Company our vendor for these fountains. SPIES was able to make the necessary repairs that same day October 7,2019 in the late afternoon at 3:00 pm. This fountain is operating fine at this time. All 4 entrance / exit fountains were maintained by cleaning out chlorinators and adding (3) 3""chlorine pucks to each chlorinator and added asmall amount of liquid chlorine to each basin / reservoir. This regular maintenance procedure seems to working by keeping the chemicals right, there is less chance of the collecting algae in these fountain basins / reservoirs.

All of the gates are functioning properly and I continue to see a need for a bumper post to protect the kiosk at the South Patrick entrance that has been struck twice already this year. The SWATCHES for the colors of the wall interior were painted on the back side of wall Shearwater Parkway entrance. There are 4 colors to pick from.

10-25-2019

This could be about the gates. I believe we need to install a bumper post at the key pad kiosk at South Patrick entrance seeing's how that kiosk has been struck twice now and there is very expensive equiupment being housed inside of these kiosks.

A 7' section of sidewalk was cracked up and in need of replacement on Montecito Drive just East of the Pump Station #1. The bad section on concrete was removed and re-poured by Bo's Concrete Company on 10/22/19.

10-18-2019

The sidewalk leading from the shed to the right front office entrance was formed up, along with (2) 7' X 9' pads for new bike racks, and one pad 4' X 6' near Redondo Drive mail box area for the bollards. All of these pads and sidewalk will be poured on Tuesday 10/22/19 by Bo's Concrete Company.

10-11-2019

STOP signs were installed at Montecito Drive and Simeon Drive, / Montecito Drive and Palos Verde Drive. Some stop bars on the pavement were also installed as needed. I believe that the install crew ran short on marerials and will finish this scope of work early next week. A special thanks goes out to the install crew from GMS who headed up this project, Coordinated by BIG William V. Thank you all.

A small walkway (PAVERS) was installed. to the right front office entrance bordered with 4 X 4 PT timber, to keep mulch and dirt debris from tracking into office. The fence project is underway to help mask some storage belongings such as light poles / ladders / ect… This area will become an organized area for such items once completed. Thank you Larry Bradshaw for your oversight of this issue, I won't let you down going forward. (Randy) (DFS).

A 4' X 6' pad was poured on and next to the mail boxes on Redondo Drive. Evidently this pad was not counter-sunk deep enough into the ground and will need to replace this pour of concrete or build up this area up with fill dirt and re-sod up to concretes edge with a gradual slope. What-ever it takes to make this right
