          The 12.5 foot icicle string has 12 lights evenly spaced and range from 4 1/2 inches to 6 1/2 inches in length.
          They alternate color and pattern every few seconds or so.
          Very well packaged in a sturdy box that has a measuring diagram on the front. This is very helpful in determining which set to buy since they come in varying lengths. Measure the area you want to decorate and then match that to the diagram on the box front (lower left corner). The diagram shows the total length and the length of just the lights.
          These are a little heavy compared to average lights so be sure to consider a sturdy hanging system.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          A very nice light set to perk up your holiday inside or out.
          Each icicle alternates between 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches in length. The light pattern also alternates colors in varying patterns of solids to 2 colors and even multi color. Solid or flashing.
          This is the 24.5 foot string but they are available in varying lengths. Something I found very useful is on the box itself. In the lower left corner of the box front, is a diagram for over all length and of just the lights. I found it useful in determining which set to buy for where I wanted to hang them. A quick measurement for my location and compare that to the box diagram.

          This 12 foot extension has many potential uses. My favorite choice is for Holiday light decorations. It is the perfect cord for Christmas tree lights because it has 3 multi outlet plugs, spaced a few feet apart, making it ideal for a central location on the tree.
          I think we've all decorated a tree only to wind up with the light plugs in various locations. But with this cord, all of your lights should be able to reach.
          In addition, it has a built in on off switch between the wall plug and the first outlet. Also the plug is fused so over loads are protected from over heating potentially causing a safety hazard.

But for me, that's all I need is another remote to keep track of not to mention, when you pack away the lights, should you also pack the cord with them, you have to remember to remove the batteries from that remote in case they leak. So I prefer to not have the remote. Read Less

          Upgrading your kitchen sink? Bathroom basin? You may need/want to consider using these supply lines.
          They are 36 inches long, 3/8 compression fitting at the shut off valve and 1/2 inch compression at the top to fit all standard sink fixtures.
          Flexible for easy installation and braided stainless steel makes them very strong and reliable. And because of the rubber compression seal, tightening only requires a small amount of wrench torque to obtain a leak proof seal. Typically 1/4 to 1/2 turn after the seal contacts.
          Braided supply lines are the only type I'll use.
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, Strong

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 3/4 in. Push-to-Connect Tee intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market.  No tools are required to make a connection.  They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security.  When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe.

          SAKRETE Natural Play Sand can be used in playgrounds, sandboxes, gardens and landscaping applications. This is a screened, washed, and dried sand. This is an all-purpose product and can also be used for traction sand, patio paver foundation, above ground pool foundation, gardening and pet boxes.
           

          What is the composition of the sand? Is it silica/quartz?

          If this sand is safe (as several reps have said)-- and as you'd think since it's marketed for play sand-- why are there these warnings on the back of the bag? "Wear protective gloves." "Wash hands thoroughly after handling.""Do not . . . smoke when handling this product." "Store locked up."

          Next is that sand is made up of naturally occurring materials including glass and silica. Some beach sand may be comprised of lime stone but comparatively speaking all packaged sand will be comprised of the earlier.
          Packaged sand is processed and thoroughly washed to remove most of the fine pulverized (dust size) particles. Those pulverized particles are what causes concern as they can become airborne and inhaled easily. Those pulverized particles are believe to lead to lung ailments when breathed in, in large quantities. However, under normal conditions larger particles of sand are rarely inhaled.
          If you like going to the beach, you stand a greater chance of inhaling the finer particles especially on a breezy day or when the beach is crowded. This product, used as play sand, has a minimal hazard and typically less hazard than breathing average polluted air.
          As with many products sold for recreation (and other), due to potential liabilities, companies are increasingly forced to print warning labels on their products.
          As a consumer (who doesn't work for quikrete/sakrete) I can assure you, this product is safer than the sand you will find on any beach or dune anywhere in the world. It is a 100% natural product and is processed to remove the finest of particles to the best purity available.

          When projecting to the inflatable, you probably want to set the projector about 25 feet away. Height isn't as important but you'll want to set up a sturdy base. I had mine set up from above projecting down and started at about 15 feet away. I moved back a few feet from there.

          But keep in mind, the lens has 2 functions. Not only does it focus for a clear picture but has another adjustment for picture size. Because of this, distance can be increased greatly for projecting to flat surfaces such as walls or a suspended sheet. Even a large (light colored) tarp could make a good screen.

          Of course it has the same controls built into the side of the projector itself.
          Think of it as a full function television without a screen.
