Tips to Avoid Spring Headaches and Product Losses

Exhaust Fan Belts:

  • Readjust belt tension after 8 – 10 hours of operation
  • Check for proper belt tension by pushing on belt between blade pulley and motor pulley with index finger. Belt should move about ½ inch with 5 pounds of pressure.
  • Keep replacement belts on hand
  • Check belts at beginning of cooling season and several times throughout year
  • Look for polished sides and cracked, dry, and/or brittle material
  • Replace belt if any signs of deterioration or if in use for several seasons
  • Clean fan blades and louvers as needed
  • Remove foreign material from inside fan housing


Versa-Vent

  • See installation manual for adjustment of drive motor limits
  • Rack and pinions may be adjusted by loosening nuts on vent shoe where rack attaches to vent door 
  • Shift rack shoe left or right to improve alignment 
  • Check the alignment with the vent door open 
  • Clean the entire vent including the cover with soap and water 
  • Remove accumulated debris in the lower track of vent door


Carolina Cooler™

  • If float valve is unable to shut off, cut off water supply, disassemble and rinse float valve, reassemble and install
  • If after above (if float valve still will not shut off), order a rebuild kit or new valve 
  • Rinse out reservoir and fill with clean water at the beginning of the season
  • Do not leave in ground tanks empty 
  • Clean the filter as well and several times throughout the year 
  • Check the filter if flow seems restricted 
  • Check the header for clogs 
  • Rinse out the header at the beginning of the season – remove the plug opposite the pump and then run the pump to flush out foreign material
  • Add chlorine bleach or any good algaecide to the reservoir on a regular basis to keep pads clean
  • Maintain a pH between 5.5 and 8.5 in the reservoir 
  • Allow pads to dry completely each night by keeping the thermostat set above the overnight low temperature 
  • Use the gate valve to adjust the water flow so that the water sprays 12” into the air at the far end of the header from the pump

Ark Encounter in Williamstown,KY Chooses The Greenhouse Company

   
   

Over the last several years, Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky has purchased seven greenhouses from The Greenhouse Company.  Tim Schmidt, the Senior Director of Site Development and Horticulture at Ark Encounter, stated that they currently grow about 20,000 six-inch annuals yearly as well as several thousand tropicals for their own use and for use at their sister attraction, Creation Museum.  Schmidt anticipates an increase in these numbers as they continue to expand.  In addition to florals and plants for landscaping, they also use greenhouses from The Greenhouse Company to grow fodder and barley hydroponically for their zoo animals.


The photos show some of the greenhouses on site at Ark Encounter as well as some of the landscaping where their plants are used.

James B Edwards Elementary Greenhouse

The following is a testimonial from Nancy Platt, teacher at James B Edwards Elementary:

"After purchasing and using a small greenhouse with our special needs students and ECO club throughout the 2015 school year, we were approached by interested parents and staff of James B Edwards Elementary School to discuss securing a larger greenhouse for use of the entire school.

Upon determining horticultural goals, Ms. Donaho suggested a particular  Jāderloon® model that would meet the needs of the school.  Each stakeholder took a role, whether it was writing grants, hosting fundraisers, or meeting district compliance requirements.  Slowly the dream became a vision, and the vision became a reality.  The process took time and tenacity with leadership changing at the school and vested team members carrying on the mission despite this change.  No amount of bureaucracy could stop the JBE horticulture team! 

After raising the funds required and winning the support of new administration, the greenhouse was erected in July of 2018, some three years after the initial meeting.  Horticulture expert and JBE mom, Kim Crane, along with multiple community volunteers now conduct a horticulture enrichment program for all grade levels at James B.  This program includes the 5th Grade running their own nursery business and selling their plants at the School. 4th Grade (Non SAIL or gifted and talented) is experimenting with growing food from food scraps and and a greenhouse cut flower garden. 4th Grade SAIL is growing milkweed and studying the migration of the monarch butterfly. They are also starting a seed business. 

3rd grade Non SAIL are studying pollinators and native plants. They are growing indigo to sell at the native plant society plant sale. 1st and 2nd graders are learning all aspects of horticulture and making their own growing mix. Kindergarten is working with Clemson to fill raised beds with veggies that support our Back Pack Buddies Program. 

Our green team is involved in a seeds to shore line program where we grow spartina grass and plant in the marsh on a field trip to the Bears Bluff National Fish Hatchery. Our students bag oyster shells to support new reefs off our coast. We are fortunate to receive many grants to support the Lowcountry Sustainability Program at James B. Edwards Elementary. 

Our new Greenhouse is beautiful and the Children LOVE spending time in it."
