          This 20 in. High Velocity Floor Fan with Shroud is an excellent choice for use in the home, garages and basements. It is easy to move around with carry-handle. It can cool large areas with ease because it features 3 high velocity fan speeds and 3 aluminum blades for maximum air movement.

          If you're looking for a high volume fan, look no further.
          We had one from maybe 25 years ago, had served us quite well. It was always a bit noisy but when you needed circulation it was great. I shut off one night last week as we had a cool evening. The next morning I went to turn it on again but it wouldn't start. Normally I'd fix something like that but the rear bearing was seized up and I have too many projects already.
          So off to Home Depot for a new one.
          We found a few we liked including one that can work off a rechargeable tool battery which would be convenient in a power outage. However, I run a back generator so we decided on this fan.

          I'm not the least disappointed. It's quieter than our old fan but moves about the same amount of air (appr. 2300 CFM) is compact and very easy to assemble (takes less than 2 minutes). It's very sturdy, has a handle (top back) which makes it easy to move, weighs less than 15 pounds and has a built on cord wrap for convenient storage. It also cost far less than the other fan we viewed though I may still purchase that one also as I could use it when I'm doing certain jobs.
          GREAT VALUE HERE.

          I wanted a lightweight compact blower, something my wife could use. She can't use my plug in model efficiently. Plus that plug in is great for cleaning leaves in the fall but isn't convenient for grass clippings or blowing off the deck.
          This unit is ideal for both and can use any of my many 18 volt Ryobi batteries. The ONE+ Ryobi, battery-tool line makes things so easy for me to switch between jobs and tools and this convenience allows my wife to participate in many of our projects where conventional tools would limit her ability.
          We have many trees that constantly deposit material on our deck. So now the Mrs. can just grab this unit, pop in a battery and clear it in a few minutes.

          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 1/2 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.

          Another great product from "Shark Bite" plumbing products.
          These are the same "push to connect" fittings as Shark Bites brass fittings but in a durable plastic. They have a new feature that they make a click sound when the pipe is inserted, you give the end piece a twist. If the pipe is seated properly it makes a click.
          These will fit all standard 1/2 inch water pipe (copper, PEX and PVC).
          They are fast and reliable, use wherever you would use Shark Bite brass fittings at a much cheaper price without giving up quality.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, audible click lock

          Fantastic product and a fantastic alternative to Shark Bite brass fittings per cost.
          You get the same reliable connection and versatility as the original brass "push to connect" fittings, in a lighter less expensive plastic.
          Just like the originals, these will fit all standard 1/2 inch pipe (copper, PEX and PVC). There is one notable change that these have a twist lock feature that you can hear so you know it's a sealed and seated connection. A tremendous time saver.

          I have many Ryobi 18 volt power tools and a couple extra batteries hopefully will insure I've always got power to spare. I often get on a large project or many projects, using a variety of my Ryobi tools. So having a good supply ensures there's always a charged one on hand.

          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

          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.

          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.
