          Purchased for refinishing baseboard heater grates because it is an acrylic paint. The home where this being used is under heavy remodel and those grates were in dire need of attention. We wanted a product that would stand up to the heat and cover the previous coating (not original) with as little prep as possible.
          This product has performed better than expected and I would choose it again.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This seems like a very resilient floor tile product and has a nice color.
          However, this is not a do it yourself product unless you're a tile expert. These are not peel and stick which means an adhesive must be applied to the surface prior to installing the tiles.
          These are commercial grade tiles and are probably best placed in a store or office setting. They would be excellent for finishing a basement remodel as they are high quality and designed for long wear even under heavy traffic.
          I took pictures. However the end result of those is not good. Apparently light variations have distorted the final product as well as wound up changing the tiles true color. The picture above is Read More

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with PEX, PE-RT or CPVC pipe. The SharkBite ProLock Push-to-Connect 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 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. Backed by our 25-year SharkBite System warranty. Color: Black.

          Ecosmart LED light bulbs may well be your best value for normal lighting. LED bulbs are smarter than incandescent and CFL's because they last far longer than either and do not contain mercury as CFL's do and therefore don't present the waste hazard.
          Of course you won't be throwing these away any time soon since under normal use they're life expectancy is 13.6 years based daily usage of 3 hours.
          They are listed as "daylight" because of the clarity of light they produce is very crisp white light. They are also dimmable which used to be the one issue with LED bulbs. But this problem has been solved.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright, daylight white light, long lasting, don't get hot, saves money on energy

          Answer: 
          I am not certain of the exact process Sakrete uses to process their sand and I'm sure at least part of that process is proprietary.
          However, because the sand is thoroughly washed and sifted it would likely need some type of heating process to remove the water. A 50 pound bag of sand is nearly 50 pounds of sand and a very small amount of moisture. Sand inherently draws moisture by it's very nature Read More

          However, because the sand is thoroughly washed and sifted it would likely need some type of heating process to remove the water. A 50 pound bag of sand is nearly 50 pounds of sand and a very small amount of moisture. Sand inherently draws moisture by it's very nature which makes a zero moisture content impossible. The best way to remove the majority of initial moisture is to run the sand through a kiln to draw off excessive moisture.

          How long does the battery run?

          Answer: 
          Battery life will vary for everyone due to usage. But average is about an hour give or take 15 minutes. One key to longer battery life is to turn it off whenever it isn't actually blowing at anything. Some will walk around with it turned on and aren't blowing at anything. They will get much shorter life.

They will get much shorter life.
          A little tip should you go with this unit. If you find the battery doesn't run as long as you like, it can use a longer life battery. In other words, it comes with a 2AH battery. 2 AH stands for 2 amp hours. This doesn't mean it will run 2 hours. It is simply a universal rating used for rechargeable batteries and represents optimal conditions in a laboratory. But this model can also use a 3AH battery or even a 4 AH battery. Since I own numerous Ryobi tools, I have several batteries and always have a back up ready to go. I do this because I may not always use a tool long enough to run the battery out. But should I happen to forget to recharge it, the next time it might die on me. So having another battery on hand gets me through. Read Less

          This is an interesting question as mine has never fallen off. Which leads me to a couple possible problems. The first will be to carefully inspect the attachment for vertical cracks. What I mean is cracks that might run along the attachment where it slides onto the tube. If it has a crack, won't fit tight to the blowers main tube.

What I mean is cracks that might run along the attachment where it slides onto the tube. If it has a crack, won't fit tight to the blowers main tube.
          The other thing to check is for proper installation. This tube has a wide cut out on one side that needs to align on center to the 3 ribs embossed on the main tube. Those ribs should be completely centered within that cut out. This is very important because on the opposite side are smaller ribs that fit into indentations on the inside of the extension tube. The smaller ribs basically lock the extension onto the main tube.
          If the extension is cracked you should be able to obtain a replacement for the cracked extension. But it may need to be ordered. Read Less
