          This toilet paper holder has a beautiful champagne bronze color that is more towards gold. To match with other bath items, you will have to select in the victorian style because even from the same manufacturer champagne bronze seemed to look closer to stainless steel in some cases. It is solidly made with a beautiful finish. Installation though not difficult requires measuring and leveling carefully.

          This towel bar is well made and must be securely installed to offer assist bar support. I could not find a proper location for installation in my bathroom where we can make use of the assist. We are jist using it as a towel bar to hold towel. The color seems more like stainless steel, and is not like other champagne bronze even from the same company.

          This is a rug that has many functions at a reasonable cost. I have this rug in a high traffic area in my kitchen among the sink, refrigerator and the kitchen island cook top.The reasons I like this rug in my are kitchen spills are easily damped up as soon as they occur; the material of the rug nap is soft polyester and nice on the feet, and the backing is firm to hold spill. The design is OK for me

          These seeds did excellently in sprouting under my trees and they came out quickly. In another area where the seeds were more exposed to sun in August they came out not as quickly did not grow as fast which I think it has mostly to do with this hot summer. I would highly recommend this grass seed above any other that I have tried. In the shaded areas I had the best results and I like the blades and deep green color of the grass from the seeds.

          For 80 years, Durham's Rock Hard Water Putty has been making repairs in wood, plaster, drywall, stone, tile, concrete and other stable surfaces. Just add water to this powdered material, apply it into voids, cracks and holes. When thoroughly dry, it can be sanded, drilled, sawed and painted. Repaired areas are very hard and long lasting. Durham's can also be cast or molded to reproduce missing trim pieces or in handicraft or artistic applications.

          This is a great product that can be used on a variety of repair jobs. Preparation to use is easy - just mix the amount needed with water. It dries hard in about 10 minutes and can be sanded if needed. The storage is easy and nice to keep on a stand by for small repairs.

          I currently have a 16-volt 10vA transformer for the doorbell (not sure if it powers the thermostat as well), the doorbell is a Ring. I recently installed a new Honeywell T9 thermostat (with a common wire) and the Ring shows the doorbell is underpowered. I don't recall it saying that before the new thermostat (though it could have and I didn't notice). Should I replace the transformer with a 16-volt 30vA or use the 24-volt 40vA transformer? Can the wiring be OVER powered, is the question?

          Answer: 
          You should replace the transformer with the 40VA. The wiring was OK in my case. An underpowered transformer will disable the Ring doorbell every now and then, and there is no reset on the Ring doorbell. I had to use the fuse breaker in the electrical panel to do an on/off on the Ring doorbell because I had a 16V 10 VA.

          I plan to install 2 ea Ring 2 doorbells and possibly add a thermostat in the future. Is this transformer OK or is it overkill?

          August 24, 2019
          Answer: 
          Because it is 40 VA, I would do as you stated, also it will rarely happen that both doorbells will be activated at the same time. Since I installed this transformer two months ago, my Ring Pro doorbell has been on with no interruption. Prior to this installation, I had to go to my electrical panel and perform an on/off on the fuse breaker to get my door Ring doorbell back on.
