          The zipper closer is a little too small for my liking and would have preferred a larger more robust one, but having said that, so far it is holding up well . They advise to use just a little soap and water but I wanted to see how well they reacted to a cold quick wash in a washing machine cycle. The result was satisfactory, although as expected it was a little difficult to get the polyester fiber back inside the covers the way they were originally. I future I will adhere to the advice given and just use warm water with a little added soap (dish washing liquid is the best)
          It did not bother me that they advise taking these cushions inside during rain. I always do that anyway
          The sizes advertised are accurate and the UV treatment they have had is always welcome and so far after a month, no sign whatsoever of color fade.
          The manufacturer states that the set has a Limited Warranty, and no warranty coverage is provided without proof of purchase.

          With the first sheet, some care has been taken when installing it, especially if on a high wall. Once the backing paper has been pulled away from the wallpaper about a foot from the top and I had positioned it on the wall, I would now let the whole sheet fall away. That way I can see easily if it is in a straight line that follows the spirit level mark. Regardless of other ways people to it, I prefer using the edge of the palm of my hand to wean out any air bubbles using a 45 angle from the top and downwards. Any wrinkles, then stop, pull the paper up to that point. I personally only pull the backing down by using both hands about 2 feet at a time. The second and subsequent sheets I followed Read More

The second and subsequent sheets I followed the same procedure with an excellent success rate. The wallpaper is thick enough and does not tear easily. In fact, I never found any issues at all with tearing. The pattern is vibrant and easily sticks to the surface and if required, use both hands either side of the paper to pull it up and again is quite easy. But be aware that if not careful and you allow the wallpaper to fold in on itself, thus sticking to each other, it will take much patience to unravel them. On the one roll, I completed 3 strips 72 inches high. An excellent finish with excellent wallpaper. This product is very versatile in the fact that not only is it a removable wallpaper but is also an ideal covering for other projects I have used different styles for (see photos.

The only disappointment although only a minor one was that the pause control has to pushed and held for it to work as described. Others I have bought have had a push into operate and push again to stop. The pull-out nozzle at first was a little stiff but after a few times it became much easier. I do like the way it goes back in the neck it clicks assuring you that it is secure.
          Good to excellent flow. Have been using this for a week only and there are no signs of any issues.
          In summing up the brushed gold effect is both stunning and operates perfectly and the deck plate certainly compliments the faucet and are easily cleaned using a damp cloth.
          It has a 90-day returnable.

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?

          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again.

          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again. At all other times I cut the lawn when the height of the grass is around the 3 inch mark and find that this level makes for a perfect finish. But what is the maximum height? This electric grass cutter does have some exceptional power but has been designed for small lawns and not the large rough terrain that my back yard has. Hope this assists you. Read Less

          Answer: 
          I can only state what I did and that worked perfectly, although only a small numbered sign on to a concrete post. I put a thin layer on one side of my numbered wood piece and another layer on the side of the post and then secured it with a hand held vice and left it in situ' for an hour. That was a few weeks back and despite rain and snow it still holds fast. Hope this assists you.
