Hose bibs must be shut off by Monday, November 1st

Just a reminder to residents that hose bibs must be shut off by Monday, November 1st.  Maintenance will start installing the hose bib covers on November 2nd.

Per QL Rules & Regs:

2.13 (h) Water pressure to outside hose bibs must be shut off, and hoses disconnected and drained by residents no later than November 1 of each year and remain shut off until March 31. Landlords shall notify and ensure that their tenants comply with this section. If not in compliance, the unit owner or his/her tenant responsible for damaging the unit or neighboring units, limited common elements and/or common elements will be responsible for the damage in accordance with the Queen’s Landing governing documents and the Maryland Condominium Act.
 

It’s that time again – time to prepare your condo for winter. Below, I have outlined two items to attend to by November 1st as well as some additional information of what to do during freezing temperatures or if you are going to be away for an extended period of time and other maintenance items you should complete inside your unit.

 

  • BY NOVEMBER 1 – Please turn off the water to your outside hose bibs from the inside shut off; remove any hoses that are attached; drain the water that may be in the line and leave the faucet open. This is very important to avoid frozen pipes and to allow Maintenance to start installing faucet protectors on the hose bibs next week. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHERE THE SHUT OFF VALVE IS LOCATED, ARE OUT OF TOWN AND DID NOT TURN OFF THE EXTERIOR HOSE BIB VALVE BEFORE LEAVING OR YOU ARE HAVING A HARD TIME TURNING THE VALVE OFF PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE IMMEDIATELY!  We will send someone over to assist you.
  • Identify the location for the main water shutoff in your home. Find out how it works in case you have to use it and make sure everyone in your family knows where the water shutoff valve is and how to open and close it. If you have a fire protection sprinkler system in your unit make sure you know what valve that is as this is a separate valve from the main and the fire suppression system  MUST BE LEFT ON!  We recommend you mark that valve as the fire suppession system.  If you need assistance with this, please contact the office

An Evening with Jay Fleming, Photographer-

 

Just a reminder that on Saturday, October 30th, from 5:30 PM to 7 PM, Queens Landing will have the honor of hosting nationally renowned photographer, Jay Fleming.

 

He is considered one of the two foremost marine photographers in the Chesapeake area, along with David Harp, and the foremost artist when it comes to the men and women working the bay. Here is a great article on the history of photography and its leading lights historically and now:
