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.

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

05-31-2019

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.

05-24-2019

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.

This week we did A wet check on clock d which is the new construction area. A few broken heads and clogged nozzles.
Noticed a lot of hot spots on the property and Tyler informed me of a couple of “ no flow zones” 279 Montecito . The timer showed some alarms on certain zones so I’m checking to see if it’s a wire issue and if those zones are running automatically. I will be there today, Friday, to evaluate the issue further. I will try and catch up with you before I leave and let you what the findings are. PS#2 has a bad #1 motor (bearings are shot) HOOVER would not install refurbished 10 h/p motor because they did not want to install a rebuilt unit (motor). I contacted American Pump Company and they agreed to do the install. American Pump Company should be here Saturday June 1, 2019 or at the latest Monday June 3,2019 to do the #1 pump motor at PS #2.

05-24-2019

This week we ran our wet check on pump 2 clock d. No real issues with that part besides a few heads and nozzles.
Also we concentrated on Shearwater Dr. Several broken off heads and several clogged nozzles. There is 2 1/2” stub up on the road side of the sidewalk that was broken off, I fixed it. The pots were also redone after the the new plants were installed with micro sprays.
Guysers along Carlsbad were fixed, we fixed the pipes under the porch at 131 redondo and rerouted some broken lateral lines under a bird of paradise plant at 304 point lobos. HOOVER came out and checked out the noise coming from PS#2 and found that one of the motors was bad (NEED of REPLACEMENT). I explained to tje Tech Jason from HOOVER that we have a rewound & rebuilt pump motor in storage ready to install. Due to the fact it was late in the day, Jason told me he would have to schedule this pump motor swap early next week. The PS#2 can operate with the one pump motor until the replacement takes place.

Lakes

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.

06-07-2019

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.

05-31-2019

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.

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.

06-07-2019

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.
