          This brass bushing connects two pieces of pipe. It can be used in underground applications and with water, oil or gas. Its hex shape enables easier grip for torque, and this bushing should not be overtightened. Lead-free and corrosion-resistant, this heavy-duty red cast brass bushing is durable for lasting use.

          A necessary item for reducing my shallow well pump outlet from 1 inch to 3/4 inch to match the household plumbing. A little Teflon tape, screw it in, make my connection and she's ready to go. And since it's all brass, no worries about corrosion.

          We're new to the Halloween yard decorations craze. Jumping in with both feet this year, we got this Jack Skellington inflatable.
          He's really quite cute.
          He operates on a low voltage fan and 2 internal LED's illuminate the inflatable. Though it uses a standard plug, comes with a power reduction pack (low voltage transformer) that attaches quite securely with a screw on connector.
          Surprisingly it takes just a few seconds to inflate completely and the fan is contained within the base. The base is weighted with bean bags sewn into the fabric. It also comes with 4 ground spikes to keep him in place if it should be breezy.

          We've never been particularly interested in These kinds of Halloween decorations in the past. But seems we're loading up on them this year.
          This Angel of Death animated statue is a great piece. At 36 inches tall, it's very life like. It operates on 3 AA batteries which make the eyes light up, the mouth move and the arms move, all while it talks. I've included the You Tube video I made.
          The batteries fit into a compartment on the back which also has a 3 position switch to have it run continuously, intermittently and off. The wings are a fine fabric and have adjustable wires inside.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          The 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Reducing Ball Valve is the easiest way to install a new or replacement shut-off ball valve when transitioning from 3/4 in. pipe down to 1/2 in. The single lever control allows for easy operation and the valve is perfect for potable water and hydronic applications where a shut-off is needed. SharkBite fittings allow you to join copper, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

          Another fine product from Shark Bite, this is an excellent option instead of soldering or clamping. Since it is a reducing valve, fits between 3/4 inch supply to a 1/2 inch branch.
          I've always been a little leery of soldering ball valves as they can't be taken apart like ordinary shut offs. Though I've never had one fail due to the heat from soldering, I still like to avoid doing so. But with push to fit connections, that's a worry of the past.
          And the best part is, these can be used with almost any kind of pipe as a transition (see photos). Since I first tried Shark Bite fittings several years ago, they've become my go to product for most of my repairs. They are completely reliable for

          Presuming this is a wood floor, there's a couple possible ways.
          As with any chore such as this, you want start in an area that has little visibility as a test section.
          I would first try some very fine sand paper and lightly sand the bubbles avoiding over sanding the area (not bubbled) since sand paper will dull the finish and embed sanding dust. The finer the sand paper, the less likely to result in the dusty or faded appearance. Still, this can typically be cleaned from the surface with a damp (not wet) rag, taking care to clean all dust. Allow this to thoroughly dry. At this point it may be ready to re-coat. It may be best to reapply using a clean dry rag made of a polyester material. Polyester has a low chance of leaving lint. Wearing latex gloves, apply the product in thin layers wringing the rag between applications. Allow each layer to dry and repeat as often as needed to match.
          In some cases I might use a thinner to clean the area to remove any cloudiness left from sanding. My preferred choice is acetone. Be very careful using acetone. Wear latex gloves and have ventilation. Again, with a rag made of material with low lint content, lightly dampen the rag with the acetone (not dripping wet) and make wiping strokes with the grain. Don't use a scrubbing motion or otherwise resist any urge to repeatedly wipe over the same area. Just straight strokes and allow to dry. This can be repeated until you achieve a consistent appearance. But always make sure the acetone is fully dried before repeating or reapplying the product. This should result in a good finish.
          One more note, the acetone may be able to remove the bubbles (without sanding) using the same method as above. But again, without knowing the specific material you're working with, always try an inconspicuous section before proceeding to more noticeable areas. Read Less

          Answer: 
          The blades are a one piece unit. To remove, unplug the fan, remove the front grate (cover), remove center cap from blade hub and remove the center nut. The blade hub may be a little tricky but will pull straight out with some effort. Reinstall in reverse except make sure the hub is lined up on the motor shaft properly.

          I would not use Tenacity when planting ANY type of grass seed. Tenacity is a broad spectrum herbicide used for killing all types of vegetation. It does so by blocking a plants ability to photosynthesize. Herbicides also can prevent germination of plant seeds, including most types of grass seed.

          It has been shown to have little effect on certain types of grasses while leaving others unaffected. And testing has shown, some grasses to only have temporary damage. However, for those reasons, using it on typical lawns could have serious impact, temporary or permanent. Therefore it is a "use at your own risk" situation.
