Christmas? I know you'll do it this weekend . I have seen it so bad that every water fixture in the house was a trickle of flow if that. That's when a plumber has to be called. If that ever happens there goes the vacation.

Hoot Owl - Your right about the dues and what we get. I have never obtained a VOWC ID. I don't use anything down there. Our son does so with that we are getting our money's worth. As you have noticed I do have a problem with some of the HOA /BOD decisions. But that has already been expressed.

If someone can't scrounge up $70.00 a Quarter there is something wrong. Can or has our HOA ever taken a home due to non payment of dues. I have heard of this in other Subdivisions.

Thanks

unfortunately, it's not a SAWS problem, it's a pressure relief valve (PRV) problem and of course that is on my side of the water line.. I can hear air coming out of it and the SAWS guy hooked up a meter to show me that I am actually getting too much pressure (almost 85 PSI) and not enough water flow. He said they don't last forever and I guess mine lasted about 7.5 years.. off to craigslist to find a plumber that can replace it and hopefully that isn't too expensive

rd2007- You're lucky since ours lasted 3-4 years. Ours is also a Centex Home. Not being a Plumber I also paid someone to install ours.

This isn't about other neighborhoods. Thats like saying that I got shot by a .22 (small round for those that don't know) but people in other neighborhoods get shot with a .357 (larger round) so being shot with a .22 isn't bad. The point is that $1MILLION a year is way too much for what comes out of the HOA.

Then, why don't you put together a budget and let us (Westcreek residents only) critique it? Let's see what you come up with, instead of blanket statements. Lots of folks like to say that it's too much...but no one has offered an alternative.
I bet that you come up with line items that I don't like...or Wellguy doesn't like....or Paka doesn't like. Point is, you can't make everyone happy. Give it a shot.

So I had that valve replaced and boy did it need it. He showed me the inside and it was absolutely disgusting. Anybody that doesn't filter their water is insane! The good thing was I found a plumber I trust and I'll use him for any future work. He actually showed up exactly on time, was professional, did exactly what he said he would, charged exactly what he said he would, and I have a written warranty on the work. He also offered to do a thorough cleaning of the water heater (removing it, flushing it, cleaning the coils, and hooking it back up) and I think I'm going to take him up on that as well. He didn't even pause when I mentioned the little white pebbles. Definitely from the water heater.
