  • Irrigation Tips - click here for more information

    • Water every 2-3 days

    • Provide lawn with one inch of water per watering

    • Depending on the sprinkler head; the time needed to achieve 1 inch of water will vary.  30 60 minutes per section of turf is a fair guideline.  Placing small containers, such as tuna cans, can help gage the time needed to provide 1 inch of water.

    • Providing the lawn with an infrequent saturation, opposed to a frequent light watering; promotes a strong root system.

    • Infrequent watering builds drought tolerance in the turf grasses.  Heavy watering allows water to penetrate deeply into the soil, which will promote a deep root system because the roots will grow towards the moisture.

    • Scheduled irrigations should be performed in the early morning hours (starting between 4:00 5:00 am is ideal).  Do not water in the evenings.  This will promote lawn disease.

    Schlage Doorknobs

         Maintenance Tip From a Unit Owner:

                  Replacement of Pitted Doorknob Manufactured by Schlage:

    • A unit owner has reported success with receiving a replacement doorknob from Schlage for one on his unit that has pitted over the years.  (Note:  Door hardware is the responsibility of the unit owner).  He contacted Schlage customer service at 888-805-9837 (www.schlage.com), sent them a picture of the doorknob and they sent a replacement at no charge.  It was recommended that when installing in a metal door that a barrier layer of clear silicon be applied between the two to prevent galvanic corrosion caused by dissimilar metals.

  • Smoke Detectors

    • It is recommended that smoke detectors be replaced every 10 years. Kidde still makes the model that is currently installed in SW2 units as well as some newer models with better smoke detection or ones which have smoke plus CO detection. All of them use the same connectors/wiring as the originally installed model but some might require that the mounting bracket be changed. The Kidde website (www.kiddeus.com ) provides information about the various products.
