          The American Standard Champion toilet is a fantastic flusher. We have now installed three of them and never had a single clog in any. The porcelain is of superior quality to other models that we’ve used and others that we’ve installed. Although the install kit is a bit confusing, all the parts were there and were easily assembled. I do recommend watching one of the YouTube installation videos. Make sure you watch the American standard champion model. The one thing lacking with this toilet is clear installation instructions. This toilet kit was installed in a basement bathroom where a clean forceful flush is essential.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Performs Well, Reliable, all parts included, no bolt cutting tequired
          Cons: lacks clear installation instructions

          Sealing granite and other natural-stone surfaces just got easier from the Stone Care Experts at Granite Gold. The new Granite Gold Sealer Wipes are an industry-leading, first-of-its kind solution for home owners: taking the growing popularity of cleaning wipes and creating the same convenience to easily seal granite and other natural-stone surfaces. Safe on hands, the thick, pre-moistened wipes come six to a pack and will seal approximately 75 ft. of natural stone about the size of an average kitchen all in a convenient and easy-to-store re-sealable pouch. Like Granite Gold Sealer 24 oz. spray, Granite Gold Sealer Wipes uses a water-based formula to build maximum surface protection against staining, etching and soil build-up.

          It brought back the shine. Our granite is about 2 years old and this is the first time to clean and seal. What a difference it made. After cleaning and drying, we applied the sealant as directed and at first were disappointed because of haze. Read the directions again and realized we were supposed to wipe/buff it after using the sealer wipes and a brilliant shine resulted. Very impressed. we selected our piece of granite because of the abundance of crystals in it. The wipes brought back the sparkle and we are extremely pleased.
          Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, really brings back the shine, not harmful to hands, low odor, quick - wipe dry buff

          Rugged and reliable are characteristics of this outlet cover. We replaced a broken metal cover and this Intermatic cover is a dramatic improvement. The heavy duty construction is great because the outlet is placed low to our patio and located in a rough use area.
          And added feature is you do not need to remove the outlet itself to install. Just loosen the receptacle screws a bit, press on the cover and twist just slightly. Retighten the screws and you are ready to go.
          Pros: Clear Instructions, Compact, Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Nice Design, don't have to remove receptacle, clear center panel, heavy duty rugged
          Cons: hinge pin difficult to seat

          This Honeywell light is far superior when compared to other exterior motion sensor lights I have purchased.
          As the picture shows, we chose to use reflected light for the immediate step and patio area and a direct spot light for the driveway. The installation was easy and had sufficient wire length to accommodate my arthritic hands. The adjustments are easy to make for light direction and sensor sensitivity.
          Another very positive feature is this light does not trigger everytime the wind blows or it rains. Our previous LED light would come on dozens of times each night and finally had to be trashed. We are very pleased with this light and highly recommend it.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Very Bright, Well Made, long wires make installation easier, easily adjusts

          Perfect time to watch the Shooting Stars is anytime you want to enjoy a relaxing evening. These single-length crystals are beautiful to watch, easy to install and totally weatherproof. Why wait till the holidays? We enjoy sitting under the Shooting Stars all summer long on our back patio. Well built and easily hung from the soffit edging, these LED acrylic crystal icicle shaped lights are a real delight with thousands of hours of expected life. String several sets together for an even more enchanting light show.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, weatherproof, relaxing

          RELN pop-up emitter is perfect solution to divert and disperse excess water to desired areas in your garden or suitable runoff areas. As the drainage pipes fill and build up slight pressure, the cover rises to allow the excess water to escape. Once the water is discharged the pressure drops and it closes in a flush position. The flush design of the product ensures that it blends well into the surrounding area. Color: Green.

          The flexible pipe has perforated holes on one side in a line. Are these holes supposed to be installed up or down?

          At the end of my pipe run, I do not have a gravel sump base to allow water to leach into the yard.

          Answer: 
          perforated pipe is installed holes down usually on a bed of 2B crushed stone. Perforated pipe - corrugated or solid - is drainage pipe not transport pipe so water is continuously coming in or out.

          I understand this base has three sides that are a bit higher so tile can go over them. Is the side without the higher edge a 36-inch side or a 48-inch side? I have U-shaped walls around an existing shower on both 48-inch sides and one of the 36-inch sides, so I'm hoping this has no higher tile edge on a 36-inch side. Thank you!
