          This Commercial Electric LED flush mount has a great transitional design with beautifully constructed clean lines. Finished in White, the low profile design makes it a great addition to any room. The frosted acrylic lens provides pure even illumination. With the easy to install clip-in mounting bracket installation is quick and easy.

          I do not know why there would be a two pack marketing method here but it is kind of an interesting ploy. Given the price, and throw in the fact that you get two fixtures and it is a no brainer... Get them! These fixtures have an innovative snap lock mounting brackett that is just plain sweet. It makes the installation seamless and secure, just screw the cross piece to a ceiling mounted box, connect the wires and snap the fixture in place. These are dimmable according to the package and soft white in color/ Temperature. They are just right for a small room or closet, If you need more light , you have two fixtures to install.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Looks Great, snap to install

          I have used many types of locksets over the years, and it has struck me that there are quite a few knock off type designs out there copying Kwikset in the design of the bolt and key systems. This is a good useful lockset, It is set up for the standard bores, 2 3/4" and/or 2 3/8" adjustable for backset and 2 1/8" bore through the door. You can use the existing bore in most cases or you can use a jig to bore correctly.... Or you can free hand it like I usually do with a 15/16" drill and a 2 1/8" hole saw. It is not too big of a trick to free hand a lock bore. Any way, this is a good solid outfit and this design for the knob I find fresh and appealing. As a bonus, the quick change cylinder Read More

          This is a pretty nice shower door outfit. It is kind of minimalist in its concept and attempts to mimic the now popular "Barn Door " hardware type of approach to sliding doors. I like the minimalist aspect of this design. The big barn door rollers are kind of jarring to me , but they do allow for a considerable amount of adjustment in case your tub is not level. We used every bit of the adjustment and it was very nice to have it available. I think the rail piece is somewhat light but as long as no teen boy tries to do pull ups on it, it should be fine. the towel bars are also light weight but fit perfectly.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I was somewhat disappointed in this faucet set to tell the truth. The faucet itself is adequate, the handles move smoothly and the valves seal with no drips. On and off are positive and no undue force is necessary to make it operate. The drain assembly is another matter. It is of course plastic which is not, in and of itself, bad, although it does make the set seem cheap. If it worked it would also be adequate. It does not work on the one I got. The metal stem has a tiny notch cut in it which is meant to engage a plastic clip on a plastic riser which connects to a plastic lever.... I think rube goldberg must have designed this mechanism. It is flimsey in the extreme and the metal rod will Read More

Un-acceptable!!! Read Less

          Get great benefits from this 1-Stage Whole House Water Filter system like softer skin and hair, free of the drying effects of chemicals. This filter is designed to stop damage done to skin and hair due to municipalities adding chlorine to the water supply. The system is easy to assemble and install so there’s no need to hassle with an expensive installation process and there’s no costly long-term maintenance. Once installed, it is designed to filter water at the point-of-entry to the home with zero wasted water, drainage or chemical discharge. Also, no electricity is required to operate the system, which further reduces your carbon footprint. Use this better than bottled water quality to cook, brew coffee and make tea with tastier, filtered water.
           

          Where can I get new filters for the unit? I have seen that they are not available in stores which i was not aware of when I got the system .

          It is pretty easy to install I thought. How hard it is for you will depend on your experience level. If you have never installed a fan, it could represent a good challenge. Follow the instructions and if you have doubt about your ability, get some help from a qualified individual.

          We have ours hooked up to a 3/4" hose when we use it. I had to change the pipe from the house which was 1/2" to a 3/4" line when we first got it going and that worked much better. So I would say 3/4". I don't know what difference quick release would make.
