          The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Elbow with Drain allows you to make a 90 Degree connection to any combination of 1/2 in. Copper, CPVC or PEX Pipe. The convenient built in drain allows for draining the line without need to remove fittings. SharkBite fittings are the easiest way to join pipe and do not require soldering, clamps, unions, glue or tools to complete the job. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

          Shark bite fittings were one of the better inventions this century. They are the best Band-aid you can keep in your tool box whether you're DIY or pro. I always have at least 5-10 different 1/2 inch fittings in my RV and another 5-10 in my house. These fittings with the drain are especially useful in the RV, as when you winterize your RV you have to drain out all liquids and having the additional drains/vents on these fittings makes sure you don't have any problems over the winter with water left in the lines freezing and cracking your pipes, You can also just cut off your old fittings and slip[ these new ones rights on making them quick and easy in an emergency. You wont be disappointed Read More

          This is 100 % Quality flooring. I received 6 boxes, which was enough to do the common area of my RV. Its thick, well made, the edges don't crumble off when your trying to slip them together.They fit together very well and snap lock easily together requiring only a few small taps from your hammer.see the pictures of the previous carpet as this upgrade made the whole RV 100% better looking on the interior and is much easier to maintain, As thick as it is I will never have to worry about replacing it.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Effective, Feels Like Wood, Great Accent, Great Instructions, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Looks High End, Looks Like Wood, Modern, Sturdy

          I mounted the Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle in the top of my desk. While it is extremely handy for floor mounting where you can't get into the walls or if you need a receptacle in the middle of the floor. Installation is easy enough for any DIYer, They are prewired and only require attachment of the hot and neutral wire. They are much easier to use than the old ones that had the screw on brass cover.
          The best part about this item is that no one can steal my phone charger anymore. I can come home, Pop up the cover and plug my phone in and charge it. I actually found a cord to charge my phone about an inch long that will close in the cover of my new receptacle and I don't have to worry about Read More

          This is a standard item now in my line of stock items we keep on hand at the shop. They are well made with a beautiful finish and look like they'll stand up to years of abuse. Comes complete with different size screws so you can use them on cabinets or drawer fronts. And sold at a very reasonable price, So far I've used them in a kitchen, to dress up the cabinets after repainting them.On a dresser, in a bathroom, These are great for DIY refinishing projects.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, 2 size screws

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          Answer: 
          the heater itself does not have a built in GFCI. Your power source that's feeding it, whether your wiring it to an existing circuit or installing a new line should either have a GFCI breaker installed on it or most bathrooms are now required by code to have GFCI receptacles in them and you can safely take power from that if the circuit is not already overloaded, If you don't have GFCI in your bathroom Read More
