          The HP 2-in-1 Utility Pump is an innovative portable utility pump that can be used as a submersible utility pump or a non-submersible transfer pump. The utility pump is constructed of reinforced corrosion-resistant thermoplastic. The water cooled, and oil free design is safe to use around fish and plants. The unit has a garden hose threaded connection for easy installation. 5/8 in. garden hose not included. The pumping capacity of this unit is 1600 GPH at 0 of lift and 1300 GPH at 10 of lift when used as a submersible utility pump. A minimum water level of 1 in. is required for the pump to prime and operate. The bottom suction design filters debris and removes water down to in. The included suction hose and suction strainer are for non-submersible transfer pump application. When used as a transfer pump, the pump will transfer 950 GPH at 0 of lift and 730 GPH at 10 of lift. The unit will self-prime after the housing is initially filled with water. The pump removes water down to 1/8 with the suction strainer.

          I received my Everbilt 1/4 HP 2-in-1 Utility Pump. After removing it from the box I noticed the hose that came with it is very stiff & won't straighten out. I was excited to try it out to see how it worked. I put one of my garden hoses on it & put it into a 5 gallon bucket. Well the pump doesn't turn off when the water is gone from the bucket. So knowing that I will have to stand by to unplug it so the pump won't get ruined. When the pump runs its not too loud. It's nice and compact & easy to use. I just wish it had a float switch so it turned off when the water level gets low. It came with instructions that are easy to follow.
          Pros: Good Instructions
          Cons: hose is stiff, no float switch

          I received the Pfister Ladera Robe Hook in Spot Defense Brushed Nickel. The brushed nickel finish looks very nice. I can tell you that the quality of this product is very good. It came with very good instructions to follow. All of the hardware is included with it too. It even comes with an allen wrench to tighten up the set screw. It was easy to install it on our bathroom door & it looks very nice. I think anyone would love this product.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          I received my Industro 1/4 in. Drive SAE Magnetic Socket Holder & it holds 26 sockets. It will hold 13 deep sockets and 13 shallow sockets. Now all I need to do is to try and find all my 1/4 inch sockets. My sockets are in a few drawers and they are hard to find them. Having this holder will make my life a lot easier for sure. It is magnetic so the sockets will stay in the holder while they aren't being used. The numbers are bright and are easy to see.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Stylish, easy to read numbers

          I received my Home Decorators Collection Arrano 56 in. Integrated LED Indoor Brushed Nickel DC Ceiling Fan with Light Kit and Remote Control. It came in a big box with a lot of parts. I opened the box & read through the instructions. The instructions are wrote very good & are easy to follow. The nickel color of the fan looks really nice. I have a large room with a 20 foot high ceiling where I'm going to install it. I called my Grandson's and told them about it and they are excited to help me install it. After looking at all the parts I will be going to Home Depot to buy a longer Brushed Nickel Extension. It is going to look awesome after we install it.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Well Made

          The Portwood Bath Collections blend of classic curves and softened angles creates a polished look in the bath. This towel hook will add a elegant touch to any bathroom. Finish your look with matching pieces from the Portwood collection (sold separately). Color: Brushed Nickel.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I received our Delta Portwood Towel Hook in SpotShield Brushed Nickel. The brushed nickel finish looks very nice. Before installing the towel hook I looked it over and there are a couple of cracks in the material that look awful. I probably won't be installing this towel hook with these defects. There were no instructions in the box. I'm surprised that the quality of this hook isn't very good. Delta products normally have very good quality and high standards. If there were no defects it would get 5 stars. But with the 2 cracks I give it 2 stars.
          Cons: No Instructions, 2 cracks in the metal
