Hot Water Pipe Leak
Recently staff discovered the domestic hot water pipe for the 893 building was leaking under the lawn near the 893 laundry room. Water was coming into the building where the pipe enters through the outer wall.
Fortunately, we had a backup line just in case something like that ever happened. Jacque called B. T. Lindsay and on Friday they tested the reserve pipes. The pressure held and we were able to move forward with the repair after the weekend. In spring of 2015 we will need to dig down outside the laundry room to find the break in the old pipe and have it fixed to provide a backup for the future. Building 887 not affected.
Over the weekend we had an unrelated pipe problem with the kitchen waste water line running from the 893 G and H units which soaked the exercise room carpet. The repair was made and the expense will be submitted to our insurance company.

Abuse of 15 Minute Parking
The Board of Directors has set a $25.00 fine on owners abusing the limits
on the 15-minute parking area between the two buildings. This applies to unit
owners and their household members, tenants and guests. This area is
important for residents unloading their cars and contractors working on the
building. The Board hopes the threat of a fine will make it unnecessary to tow
vehicles. Please read the notice concerning the fine.

Ductwork Cleaning Complete
On Tuesday, May 29, 2012, Coastal Enviro Ductwork Company, hired by the
Executive Board, began cleaning the ducts in bathrooms and
kitchens. Work began in Building 893, starting with the A, B and C units
and continue until the completion of the building. Work then moved on to
Building 887 but switched to cleaning ducts one floor at a time
until 887 was completed. Working by floor proved to be much more efficient.
Coastal Enviro Solutions cleaned the ducts in both buildings
at a cost of $6,500. The piping and registers in the units were extremely
dirty and blocked with debris. The ducts were last cleaned in June 2002.
It is recommended that the ducts be cleaned every 5 years.

as six years.
