Please note that there will be a water shut-off to the entire building on Tuesday, August 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in order to conduct maintenance to the ACVs located throughout the building. We understand that this is an inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
Few things to know:
• DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN ON YOUR WATER DURING THE SHUT-OFF. Doing so will put air into the pipe lines and cause pressure issues for your unit and the units within the stack. This is a major contributor to pressure issues when the water is turned back on.
• Without the water on, your toilet is still available for use and can be flushed 1-2 times maximum.
• You may see bubbles or “murky” water once the water turns back on. This is normal and is a result of air getting into the pipes. The water is drinkable and will look clear after running it for a few minutes.
After a water shut-off we have discovered that air gets trapped in the pipes; in order to clear this issue and get your pressure back to normal please run your hot and cold water for the sink and tub in BOTH of your bathrooms at the same time for at approximately 1-2 minutes. This will cause the air to escape through your fixtures and allow the plumbing to stabilize itself.
Also, your aerator in the kitchen and bathroom sink may get clogged after a water shut-off. It is recommended that you clean and remove any debris or mineral built up.
What is an ACV?
Automatic Control Valves (ACVs) regulate the pressure flow of fluids. These valves normally respond to signals generated by independent devices such as flow meters or temperature gauges. When you use your sink, shower, and appliances you are signaling to the system that you need hot and/or cold water. The ACVs go to work to fulfill your request. Annual maintenance ensures the devices work properly throughout the building.
The Management office will be closed on Tuesday, August 7. The Manager will respond to messages upon her return the next business day. Should you experience a property threatening emergency please call 800-400-2284.

The following products will be used: 3336F (Cleary’s), Medallion WDG (Syngenta), Subdue Maxx (Syngenta)
For your safety, during the treatment, please keep any nearby windows closed and stay away from the area until completely dry.
If you are using any type of bike, electric vehicle, or scooter sharing program, please remember to park away from the entrance of the Aria building or in pedestrian walk ways. The Association has had issues with these transportation devices blocking the sidewalk directly in front of the building and in some cases, the lobby doors and garage gate. Remember that the planters in front of the building are not appropriate parking areas either as it is considered part of the Association’s private property. Please refer to your apps’ directions for details as to where to park your vehicle.
