          The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Elbow with Drain allows you to make a 90 Degree connection to any combination of 1/2 in. Copper, CPVC or PEX Pipe. The convenient built in drain allows for draining the line without need to remove fittings. SharkBite fittings are the easiest way to join pipe and do not require soldering, clamps, unions, glue or tools to complete the job. 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. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

          This 1/2" X 1/2" Elbow With Drain made by Shark Bite Plumbing Solutions can be used on PEX, CPVC, PE-RT, or Copper and is just another quality example of the plumbing fittings manufactured by this company. The only thing I would like for them to do is to include a copy of the installation instructions in every package fo those of us that only use these products on occasion and don't want to have to do a web search to make sure we are doing everything correctly. But even if they don't take my suggestion, I will still be buying there product!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use
          Cons: no written instructions

          This Cordova Safety Products XL Model #: VS271 P High Visibility Safety Vest Class 2 Meets ANSI/ISEA 107-2015. Is so "Bright" that for anyone not to be seen wearing this, they would have to be struck by someone as "Blind as the proverbial bat" and you could wear it all day in any kind of weather with little effect on your comfort. I will be buying one of these for each of my kids vehicles , with my advice to ALWAYS put it on before getting out of the car on a street or highway.

          Like every IDEAL product I have owned since I passed my masters electrical license and started doing electrical installation and repair way back in 1965 these wire nuts are top of the line., this particular one, (451, yellow) is able to be used to connect the following wire sizes and combinations, (1-3 # 12s) (1 #10w/1 #12), (1 #14 w/1-5 #18s), (1-3 #14s), ( 1 #10w/1-3 #18), (3 #14w/ 1-2 #18s), (2-4 #16), (1#12w/ 1-5 #18s), (1 #16w/ 1-5 #18) , (2-4 #18 ), j(2 #12 w/ 1 #14), (4#16w/ 1-2 #18). Unlike earlier wire nuts with no "skirt" around the bottom, this IDEAL model does a much better job of keeping wires from one connection from making contact with other connections.

          This 1/10th HP Non-Submersible Transfer pump is really nice to have around the house for the little jobs that come up now and then like pumping out A little kids pool, a washing machine that won't empty, a deep sink or water in your basement that you do not have a sump pump to get rid of or maybe the pump you have is broken? It is a light duty pump that will take care of the little " pump out jobs" nicely, but not to be used daily. It runs smoothly and is quiet compared to others.

          Another example of a quality lighting fixture from Commercial Electric. This Comercial Bronze LED Area Light rated at 18,000 Lumens is made mostly for commercial installations, but if your space is large enough, and you can mount it high enough (like on a joint of galvanized pipe which is 21 feet I believe? Or a sectional flag pole or ?) you can light up your "Sports space" or what ever your wants or needs are? The power consumption according to the info on the box it came in is only 150 watts, which means if you lived here in the western part on West Virginia where a KW of electricity, (1,000 watts) cost 12 cents, you could operate this light for almost 7 hours for 12 cents.

If by low spot you mean a 1" or deeper spot that you would need to pump out after a big rain, but not need to do every day, this pump would work ok for that.
