          I got the tub and shower enclosure for a room in my basement that I wanted to convert into a bathroom. After reading some of the previous reviews , I made sure my walls were 100% straight & plumb, I took all my measurements from the enclosure and tub itself, then built my end wall. Everything went well and as usual I filled any empty space underneath near the ends of the tub with low expansion window foam, for support. Its a good product and the key to the whole installation is reading directions, measuring twice and making sure your plumb, You will definately end up with a rewarding experience and a great looking bath and enclosure.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design

          The QEP Black Widow Diamond Blade is a premier blade for very fast, chip-and wobble-free cutting of porcelain, marble, granite and ceramic tile. The unique diamond-shaped micro segmented laser cutouts around the perimeter keep the blade cooler for superior performance and a longer life. In fact, independent testing has shown that the total average cut speed for the Black Widow blade is 17.14 seconds; faster than other porcelain cutting blades on the market today.

          Used this to cut a soapstone countertop for a custom brick oven I built.. Cut the soapstone Incredibly, minimizing my finish work, Used it after that to cut some ceramic tile for a repair on a floor and worked just as well as it did on the soapstone. Would definitely recommend this product
          Pros: Sturdy, Effective

          The power inlet box is installed on the exterior of the house near your main electrical panel. Inside, it is hardwired to your manual transfer switch to restore power to your main electrical panel. When the power goes out, you simply connect one end of a power cord to your portable generator outlet. The other end is plugged into the power inlet box.

          Without an inlet box like this, you wind up with extension cords either through a window or through a door. . With this box on the outside, and a transfer switch inside, I don't have to worry about having the generator close to the house, letting deadly fumes in thru a door or window with extension cords thru it. Connection is easy and the plug is on the bottom of the box which helps to keep water out. A good deal all around and I would reccomend to anyone using a portable generator
          Pros: Nice Design, Easy Installation

          A nice set of universal electrical pliers. Comfortable cushioned grip. As with normal stripping pliers you can strip all your average size wires. Also the addition of the bolt cutter and crimping tool means I no longer have to carry crimping pliers as well in my tool belt. Anything you can do to make your tool belt lighter at the end of the day is a good thing….They’re made of a nice quality steel and seems like they will hold up for quite a while. Overall a good investment for a good tool.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Nice Design

          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.

          If this is being installed in a bathroom there is always a chance of it being exposed to water to some degree. What, if any, types of built in protection does it have? ie GFI, etc. Thank you

          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

          Answer: 
          Yes they will, the 2 cameras dont draw a lot of amps/volts, there should be more than ample power on a cigarette lighter circuit. You could probably run 5 or 6 of them off the same plugs if you wanted to for some reason.

          not unless you put in a 110 volt ac converter, then you would have to calculate the wattage and see if your system had enough power to run it.
