Earlier this week we performed a water tight test on the fountain after the coating vendor completed their repairs. That test revealed a leak around a return line. A specialist arrived today (7/22/20) to assess the situation and scheduled further repairs for tomorrow and Friday. After they completed their repairs the coating vendor will apply new material around the repaired area. This will take 48 hours to cure. Luma’s Engineering Team will then perform another water test on Monday. Assuming all goes well with that test, the fountain can be completely refilled on Monday, with the rocks installed on Tuesday. Hopefully we won’t have to do this for another 14 years!
