2002 Plumbing Resolution

December 21, 2002

Due to an increased concern regarding the equity of cost related to plumbing repairs, and the inconvenience of shutting off the water to 250 homes, the Board of Directors, Village Lakes Homeowners Association, is adopting the following maintenance resolution to this problem.

It is the resolve of the Board that all the plumbing equipment located on the Homeowner’s lot, including the meter the meter box and the plumbing on both sides of the meter, belongs to the Homeowner and is the Homeowners responsibility to maintain. The Association’s governing documents under Article 8 Section 14 give the responsibility of maintaining the water meter on each lot to the individual Homeowner. An inordinate amount of plumbing leaks occur when any Homeowner who needs to conduct a plumbing repair on his/her lot turns off the water to his/her lot using the shutoff at the meter.  A disproportionate number of times this will result in a break to the pressure line on the street side of the meter due to the torque placed on the plumbing in shutting off the water.

Therefore, the Board of Directors proposes the following resolution:

The cost of any plumbing repair to fix a pressure water line leading into the meter box will be born by the Homeowner if located on the Homeowners lot. Repairs to the pressure line on the street side of the meter require, unfortunately, that the water to the entire community must be shut down. Therefore, the following guidelines must be followed.

  1. The Homeowner in the course of conducting his/her repair must use a licensed insured plumber to conduct the water shut off.
  2. The plumbing repair must be scheduled during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. unless an emergency, in which case additional costs to the Homeowner may be involved.
  3. The Homeowner must notify and coordinate with the management prior to conducting their repair.

A Homeowner would be well advised to always use a licensed insured plumber when conducting any plumbing repair and to always use extreme caution when shutting off the water to your home at the meter.

Pool Rules

 The following pool and spa rules and regulations have been adopted by the Village Lakes Homeowners Association (HOA) and approved by the Board of Directors. They are subject to changes and additions as needed for the protection of the common area property of the Village Lakes HOA and for the benefit and safety of property owners and their guests.

GENERAL POOL AND SPA RULES

  1. No one under the age of 14 is allowed in the pool area at any time without a parent, guardian or pre-arranged adult supervisor who is 18 years of age or older. DO NOT ask others in the pool area to act as a supervisor for these adolescents.
  2. NO pets are allowed inside the fence surrounding the pool area at any time. This is a public health ordinance and fines up to $500.00 can be levied by the Health Department.
  3. California Health and Safety Code states that the pool gates are to be completely shut at ALL TIMES. Pool gates must be fully closed in a locked position upon entering and leaving the pool area. Although it is an inconvenience to use a key, propping the gates open is an invitation to disaster—think when accessing and leaving the pool.
  4. NO glass bottles, containers or drinking glasses of any kind are allowed in the pool area. Broken glass presents a serious safety hazard.
  5. NO EATING, DRINKING OR SMOKING WHILE IN THE POOL OR SPA. All refreshments are to be consumed out of the water.
  6. NO diapers are allowed in the pool or spa at any time.
  7. NO soaps, shampoos, or oils allowed in the pool or spa. Use of oils does damage to the pump and filter and leaves a film on the water. Oils also promote the growth of black algae. Soaps and shampoos may be used in the shower to remove oils before entering the water. Please rinse off soap and shampoos completely before entering the water. Let’s keep our pool and spa scum free.
  8. All users must shower before enter the pool and spa.
  9. Only pool toys are allowed in the water. “Pool Toys” are defined as inflatable flotation devices. Rafts are permitted only when the pool is NOT crowded so as to not interfere with the rights of other pool users.
  10. All trash, cigarette buts and their containers must be cleaned up and disposed of properly before leaving the pool area.
  11. NO rough or boisterous horseplay is permitted in the pool area.
  12. Only conventional swimwear is allowed in the pool or spa.  NO jeans or cutoffs.  Loose threads will damage the pump and filters.
  13. The pool is open until 10:00 p.m.
  14. Use of electrical outlets in the pool and spa area by ANY electrical appliance is prohibited.
  15. Guest are limited to 4 per household and must be accompanied by an ADULT           resident 18 years of age or older. More than 4 guests is considered a party. All common area parties MUST have PRIOR Board approval.
