          The Everbilt 1HP pool pump has been designed for use with permanently installed swimming pools only. A permanently installed pool is constructed in or on the ground, or in a building and is not intended to be disassembled or moved. The pump is designed to accept 1 in. suction piping. The 11/5/230-Volt single phase motor is factory pre-wired to 230-Volt. The ring and cover can be easily removed to clean leaves and debris from the basket.

          Our Hayward pump is on its last legs, so I was glad to find this replacement. We have an in-ground pool, and the old pump is old enough where you can't read anything on it, but I was able to make out that it was only 3/4HP, so this should be a marked improvement. Unfortunately, it came two days after we closed the pool, so while we were able to update everything, and make any necessary changes to layout, and pipes and whatnot, I wasn't able to actually test how it worked.
          Since I was replacing a unit, I had most everything on hand, but the instructions are actually very clear in exactly what was included, and what you still needed to purchase. All the included nuts, adapters and o-rings

          Our Hayward pump is on its last legs, so I was glad to find this replacement. We have an in-ground pool, and the old pump is old enough where you can't read anything on it, but I was able to make out that it was only 3/4HP, so this should be a marked improvement. Unfortunately, it came two days after we closed the pool, so while we were able to update everything, and make any necessary changes to layout, and pipes and whatnot, I wasn't able to actually test how it worked.
          Since I was replacing a unit, I had most everything on hand, but the instructions are actually very clear in exactly what was included, and what you still needed to purchase. All the included nuts, adapters and o-rings were in the basket.
          The debris basket is much smaller than on our old unit, but much easier to open (just twist), and the seal is really good, so there should't be any issues with suction.
          Our wiring was 320 volt, so we didn't have to change anything, but it seems to be easy if you need to.
          The box states that it does 65 gallons per minute, with a 48' maximum vertical lift.
          I wish I had more information to compare off my old unit, but the ease of installation and specifications makes me think this pump should do a good job, and last.

          A nice way to add a little extra storage. Unfortunately, none of my closets are 6 feet wide, so I decided to hang this in our office for my wife to store some of her collectibles on. She wanted something deep, and sturdy, and this fit the bill perfectly.
          The directions were fairly straightforward, and all the pieces, including 2" screws, were included. This is really a "kit", as it included a wall cup for the hanging rod, if needed. There was only one, but there were two hang rod supports, and if the weight is distributed evenly, it says that rod alone can hold 60 pounds. The entire unit can hold up to 300 pounds, combined rod and shelf weight.

          The only pause in installing this was that the brackets are the same for the 12" or 16" width model, and you just have to rotate the brackets, which are supposed to be labeled as to which side is which, (they weren't) and I would prefer each width shelf got its own brackets, as opposed to a manufactures convenience. It's also obviously long, and heavy, so you really need two people as well as a step stool of some sort, if you're installing this higher up.
          I'm also not exactly sure what the 84" in the listing is referring to: the shelf is 72", and you can put it at whichever height you wish.

          It did NOT include two interchangeable faceplates, as the listing said, it just had a round corner, which was a little unfortunate, as I could have use a square corner, but it isn't noticeable at all, and since I installed it on a closet, you'd never see it.
          Other than that, a really nice update; I may have to redo more rooms now.

          Niagara Conservation Niagara Conservation Earth Pro 3-Spray 3.35 in. Fixed Round 1.5 GPM with High Pressure Compensator Showerhead in Brushed Nickel
          The Niagara Conservation Earth Luxe Showerhead save money by using up to 40% less water than traditional low-flow showerheads typically found on the market. While the Earth Luxe Showerhead ensures drastic water usage reductions, the patented pressure compensating technology still guarantees a powerful, consistent flow rate regardless of available water pressure. The showerhead features a 9-jet adjustable turbo massage that easily rotates from a gentle needle spray to a forceful jet. As the stream is non-aerated, the showerhead experiences less temperature loss translating to maximum energy-savings. Reduced water usage also reduces cost for heating water. Color: Brushed Nickel.

          A very nice showerhead for those of us with low water-pressure. I've been on the hunt for a showerhead that could actually hit the back of the shower, and this is the first one that actually has.
          Installation was just to twist it on, so there was no issues there. It is a relatively small nozzle, so it kind of looks a little silly (in my opinion), but it packs a punch, so I've overlooked that.
          The selector turns easily, and while it says there are three sprays, there's really only two; a normal spray, and a much more powerful jet.

          Absolutely great plants. They are a true quart sized plant, so the size was as expected. A quart plant is usually the size of an herb plant you would buy, and these are definitely the same size.
          They arrived so well packed, my four-year-old had turned the box upside-down, and there was absolutely no damage. The four pack was in a cardboard tray, wrapped with bubble wrap, taped into place, with a bamboo stick to keep them from sliding. There was even a handle attached to the tray, so it was mess free to remove the tray from the box.

Not a drop of dirt was outside the wrapping, and I received them after a weekend of unreasonably warm weather, and the plants were even still moist.
          Based on the packing alone, I would order plants from Costa Farms again.
          The plants themselves are ready to bloom, so there wasn't a single bloom actually on any plants, but I would guess they'll starting opening in 4-5 days. They're covered with blooms, so I expect they're going to look great. They each had a little wooden owl stuck in as added decor and would be a great gift.
          I do feel like the price is a high, but the plants are high quality, and the shipping alone almost merits paying extra.

          This RIDGID wet nozzle and squeegee tool is ideal for liquid clean-up on hard surfaces. If your liquid clean-up also includes debris, the squeegee insert can be removed and the tool can be used as a traditional nozzle. This vacuum attachment is for use with wet/dry vacuums with 2-1/2 in. Dia hoses. Color: Black.

          In the Product Specification section, it says that this Camera is for Indoor Use Only.
          What would be the reason for that? Is it because it cannot survive the outdoor humidity and heat ?
          Can it be used in a covered patio, where it will never get wet?
