Fitness Center News
Posted on Oct 13th, 2015
Cardio Equipment Lease is up for renewal
The treadmills, ellipticals and bike are on a lease and maintenance program. The term is up and the Board has decided to trade the cardio equipment for updated replacements.  Due to the new digital only cable platform TWC has moved to, each television will be required to have its own converter box and remote control (as you may have noticed in the last couple of months). That process does not work well for fitness centers with multiple pieces of equipment having tvs.
Therefore, the new equipment will not have televisions built into the machines. Several televisions will be installed on the wall within comfortable viewing distance of the cardio machines. The machines will have fm transmitters that will allow you to listen to the tv of your choice by plugging your earphones into the cardio machine console.
We hope to have the new equipment in within a couple of months- it all depends on the speed of the process to finalize the lease and order, receive and install the machines.
We appreciate those fitness members that care for the facility and remind you to please report to management any misuse you may see.
Your patience in the equipment transition is greatly appreciated!

~ Irrigation Updates~
Click here to view the new Google map to locate your irrigation zone! (Thanks Rick Hocutt!)
Irrigation is far and away the most frequent concern our residents voice to the management company.  Moss Creek's is an extremely complex irrigation system, and when a part of it malfunctions it is critical that Kuester is informed quickly. The 2016 Irrigation Season begins on 4/18. Please note that irrigation activation requests will not be accepted prior to 4/25. 
Season 2016 System UPDATES:
4/28 Thurs-  Phase 2--valve 16 was repaired. Valves 13+14(Q), 18(T) & 28(W) are improperly functioning and parts are due in by 1st of next week. Phase 1--one of the 2 pumps in the pump stn is not working fully- thus the cause of the low pressure some residents are reporting. Tri-State pumps is scheduled tomorrow afternoon to diagnose and hopefully repair on site. We will continue to run the pump stn but those in large zones or higher elevations will experience low pressure until the 2nd pump is repaired. 
4/26 Tues- Valve 16 in zone R was repaired. 
4/25 Mon- Phs 2--The irrigation manager tested zone Y again and reset the program. 
Valves 4 and 29 are back up. Valves 16(R), 18(T) and 28(W) are down- likely the whole valve will need to be replaced- parts are on order. (if you are not sure what VALVE # you are in see the list of addresses by zone/valve# document). 
They are still finishing the re-testing of zones U and V. 
All phs 1 is working. 
4/22 Friday- Zone E- The irrigation manager further investigated the zone E components and discovered that the solenoid was only partially functioning- not allowing the full water flow to enter the sub-main. He received the part today and it will be fixed today. Zone D- low pressure has been reported by several residents. The irrigation manager is investigating. The crew is re-testing all of phs 2 zones and any issues reported. Any specific issues and repairs will be posted here. 
We have recorded .63" of rain fall so far today, so rain sensors will turn the system off.
4/19 Tues- Phs 1 pump stn blew a hose around 4:30pm 4/19. Pump stn was turned off to stop the rush of water- therefore irrigation for phase 1 could not run that night.  The part was replaced this morning and the station is operable again. Phs 2- program malfunction at the start of the evening run. Irrigation manager returned to property last night at 9pm to reset- after that, all zones in last night's phs 2 schedule should have operated appropriately. 

Remember, the HOA is only responsible for getting water to your curb.  Anything beyond the curb, including timers, sprinkler heads, etc. is the responsibility of the homeowner (excluding Townhome Owners).  The Irrigation Manager’s focus is on the maintenance of the common areas and making sure the system is running properly during the scheduled times and the common grounds are being watered appropriately.
Proper timer programming is crucial to the functionality of the system and it is your responsibility to make sure your timers are set correctly. The clock/timer that you have in your garage is intended to facilitate the opening of your irrigation system on your Lot to the sub main during the specified hour that the timer is set for. This time should coincide with the time that the irrigation zone you live in runs.  First, make sure your timer is set properly and it still has its programming. If you are unsure about how to program your timer, check the owner's manual or consult with an independent landscaper. Many timer instruction manuals are available online.
Then, find your valve box in your yard that houses the electric valves that man your individual zones on your Lot.  There will be one valve per zone in your yard. Make sure that these electric valves are all turned off. You may have your clock set, but with these valves turned in the ON position, the clock is being bypassed and not operating according to its purpose. To turn your system from manual setting to clock function, you must turn off the irrigation valves in the valve box in your yard. If the valves will not turn any further to the right, they may need to be unscrewed and rinsed out. Dirt and mulch can get inside the workings and cause them to stick open (thus allowing your system to come on anytime during the day the HOA pressurizes the sub mains at the street). Being that Moss Creek’s irrigation system uses ‘dirty’ water or unfiltered well water instead of city water, there is regular system maintenance that is required to keep your system working properly- cleaning your filter and valves. You should do this at least once or twice a season. In addition, you must make sure that your system only operates one zone in your yard at a time during the hour of scheduled irrigation. The main system is designed to provide a total of 600 gallons of water to each lawn, spread over a one-hour time frame For example, if your irrigation system has 4 zones, you will need to set your clock to run each separately -for say 15 minutes each. A good tip is to water side yard zones for less time and rotor zones longer and not to waste too much of your hour on any drip zones.  Broken heads are also a cause of much water waste. Please make sure that all of your heads are in working order. A broken head can waste as many as 25 gallons per minute!
Over-watering your lawn is not only wasteful, but it can lead to diseased turf and growth of fungi.  The system is equipped with turf-saturation sensors or rain sensors which will prevent the irrigation from being activated if the ground is saturated to a certain point. A ½ an inch of rain or more activates the system’s rain sensors. Do not over-compensate for a missed irrigation cycle by running multiple zones at once. This abuse of the system could cause you to lose your watering privileges or pay a fine.
The irrigation main lines and sub-mains are not usually pressurized during the daytime. To test or work on your system during business hours OR TO FLAG YOU IRRIGATION HEADS FOR AERATION, fill out the Irrigation Activation Request form on this website using this link or under the Irrigation tab. Note:  Irrigation inspections will be done each season. Every Homeowner must have their system running according to the Moss Creek  Please see Irrigation Resolution under the Irrigation tab. Irrigation Map and run times are also linked under the Irrigation tab on this homepage. Link to the FAQ page for contractor recommendations from other residents.
The irrigation season will end at the end of October- or as weather permits.
