          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.

          As a retired plumber, I often do plumbing repairs for friends and family as well as my own. With the introduction of Shark Bite products several years ago, I have become increasingly impressed with the many added products in their (now full) line of push to connect fittings.
          This 3/4 inch shut off valve requires no tools for installation and will fit PEX pipe, PVC and copper. Simply trim the tubing of choice to the proper length, insert it to the valve (to depth) and twist lock the end fitting for a leak proof seal.

          Whenever you need to expand a conventional wall outlet you want to make quality your main priority since it involves electricity.
          Most of us have used these devices and found they don't hold to the wall socket well or hold plugs well. That hasn't been a problem with this plug expand-er.
          A nice feature of this unit is it has a flat top surface and ledge that are perfect for resting your mobile phone on while charging it with a conventional plug in charger. And since it has 3 plug in points, you don't lose plug space while the phone is charging.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Nice Design

          This 8 in. L outdoor faucet is the ideal choice for transferring water from your indoor water supply to the outside of your house. It connects to 3/4 in. garden hose, allowing the water to be sprayed at any distance and direction. Great for watering your lawn and for all other outdoor water needs.

          This is the Everflow 3/4 inch, frost-less shut off valve for your exterior hose needs.
          I feel Everflow is the top of the line quality for exterior shut offs.
          Also known as a hose bib or sill cock, this is made specifically for cold regions as the 8 inch long valve protrudes into the basement or crawl space out of the cold. In this way the actual valve rests at the inside of the long tube effectively putting it inside the warmer area and not out in the freezing temps.
          Do it your selfers may want to check local codes before purchasing this specific model as it does not have a vacuum breaker (also known as an anti siphon valve) which may be required for use with your municipal water Read More

          In my pictures, you'll see how I used to hang my extension cords. Not only was it tedious but it's not really good for the cord either.
          So when I saw these straps, I decided I had to try them.
          I've found they are at least as easy as my old way for wrapping my cords. But also won't damage the cords. Meanwhile, they make the cords easier to hang. I have a lot of cords and keep them in many parts of the house and storage areas because if I should need one, don't want to have to go all the way out to the garage for it.

          But these straps are very convenient for many other items as well. You can use them to store garden hoses for winter. I do a lot of plumbing work and have rolls of tubing, so I wrap one of these straps around a bundle so it doesn't unravel. Same with electrical wire.
          And since they're elastic, they'll stretch to fit your needs. I give them a 10. Read Less

          Answer: 
          Grass seed can be sown anytime in spring, summer or fall keeping certain weather conditions in mind. In spring it's best to wait until your sure there is no danger of a hard frost. Grass seed is pretty resilient and can typically handle a mild frost. The problem arises when seed has been on the ground, wet, for a number of days and is ready to sprout.

          Grass seed can be sown anytime in spring, summer or fall keeping certain weather conditions in mind. In spring it's best to wait until your sure there is no danger of a hard frost. Grass seed is pretty resilient and can typically handle a mild frost. The problem arises when seed has been on the ground, wet, for a number of days and is ready to sprout. Should it freeze at just the right phase, will likely kill the seed. Your specific location can help you determine the best time to seed. I suggest you Google planting zones to determine what zone your location is in as these zones keep in consideration the chances of a killing frost (on average) is last likely to occur. No matter when you plant, check your extended forecast for rain and note how much is expected. You don't want to plant and have a super soak-er within a few days as your seed will wash out. When I plant, I like to be sure the soil is loose and then lightly rake it over with a fan rake. Nothing aggressive as you just want the soil to help hold the seed. Immediately water after you rake it, will help set the seed and guard against wind. Water well daily and if it's a warm sunny day may need to water several times. If you plant in the fall follow the same procedure as you would for spring. Grass seed can easily take 10 days or more to sprout and is most vulnerable after the first few days or so. Sprouted grass is vulnerable to any extended freezing as it will go dormant if exposed to freezing temperatures for more than a day or 2. Read Less

          This should work just fine for over seeding and Scott's warranty provides for a good margin of security. Follow the instructions closely (on the bag). Most important is keeping the seed watered particularly on warm days that have lots of sun.

          Answer: 
          You need to know what planting zone your in. Check with a local horticulturist if your not sure of your zone. Typically you can plant whenever the danger of HARD frost is over. Grass seed can usually with stand a mild frost but wet seed and a hard frost are a bad combination.
