          It’s not to describe these superb cushions as the colors are vibrant and extremely comfortable and fit into my Adirondack chair really well.

          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?

          That would depend on where your window is in relation to the the final position of the surround and whether your window is too close to the horizontal recess where the tiles would go.

          That would depend on where your window is in relation to the the final position of the surround and whether your window is too close to the horizontal recess where the tiles would go. I cut my surround a few inches from the top where my 4 inch air vent is situated. I drilled a hole that was big enough for my jig saw blade to go through and laid some polypropylene that I had cut to lay over the top to avoid any scratches to the surface of the surround and using a very fine blade cut through very easily. The most critical part was the accuracy of the cut in respect to my vent, Finally using a piece of fine sand paper to clear any rough edges. In short Rob it does cut easy. Just make sure that before cutting your surround is firm and does not vibrate. Good luck with your project. Read Less

          How much does 1TB give me in terms of recording? 4-5 hrs of actively recording? I don't expect a lot of traffic, just the normal 6-8AM and 5-8PM rush hours.

          I am only able to give you my results regarding the length of a recording. I live on a busy road with my camera's set to view my entrance's. Following a tragic accident between a truck and a pedestrian outside my driveway and on the road, I was able to provide the recorded event to the police even after 5 days later. They sent a technician to retrieve the footage and had no problems. I have this set up on a loop but it hadn't started to record over it yet so I know it recorded for at least the 5 days. How many hours recording time? No idea but as I can go back at least 5 days before it starts to record over, it must be quite considerable more than 5 hours. I have had mine set up now for over 3 years and have had so far a flawless experience Read Less

          Answer: 
          I got an additional basket by inquiring at the Home Depot service desk and they called the company for me. the company then sent me one. This was a couple of years back and I cannot recall how much it was but I do recall that the shipping cost more than the basket. So the short answer is: Yes you can buy additional baskets. Just inquire at one of the Home Depot stores.

          Does Delta sell an arm so the shower head comes out further and faces down? We like the shower head but it is facing out of the glass door, soaking the floor.
