          This 16 in. x 21 in. x 12.25 in high rectangular valve box is designed for use in the ground. Lid contains an easy to open trap door which makes accessing the water meter easy. Lid states WATER in raised embossed letters. Color: Green.

          I needed to replace an old meter box at the edge of a gravel driveway. The old one was a more brittle type plastic and the long sides were collapsing in because of the soil weight and wheel loads near (and sometimes on) the box. Even though this replacement box is not rated to handle wheel loads from cars and truck, it is a slightly flexible plastic and is constructed with a fairly thick section so I think it will hold up better. I also placed some large rocks and concrete bricks into the ground along the driveway side to carry some of the wheel loads that I know will get imposed on the box. It was pretty easy to install after determining the depth of the hole to set it in and making a Read More

I also placed some large rocks and concrete bricks into the ground along the driveway side to carry some of the wheel loads that I know will get imposed on the box. It was pretty easy to install after determining the depth of the hole to set it in and making a smooth, firm rectangle in the soil to set the lower flange edge on. The smaller opening in the lid is a nice idea as well to access the meter setter and shut off valve without having to open the entire top. Read Less

          I needed 6 inch pipe for two different uses, both of which are pretty short. Ideally I was hoping to find a cut-off section of water pipe (PVC, cast iron, ductile iron) which has a thicker wall than this SDR-35 pipe, but I couldn't find a short section and didn't want to buy a 10 foot long piece. One use I had was to add a short 7 inch log riser to a cast iron valve box in a gravel driveway. This SDR-35 pipe is not ideal because it doesn't seat into the valve box flange quite right and it isn't as strong to support wheel loads. I took care of both of those issues by pouring a pre-mix concrete ring around the PVC pipe section to keep it aligned on the valve box and also provide extra support Read More

I took care of both of those issues by pouring a pre-mix concrete ring around the PVC pipe section to keep it aligned on the valve box and also provide extra support of the valve box cap by spreading out the wheel loads to the ground around the valve box.
          The other use was to add a short support to a vessel sink that we use outdoors as a birdbath. We've had the sink resting on concrete bricks but now we have it sitting on a section of this PVC pipe. It's set vertically into the ground and spray painted red to go with the red vessle sink. It looks great and supports the sink very well. If the sink drain leaks a bit the drips can soak into the ground through the open bottom of the pipe section. I really appreciate the these short section of this PVC pipe are available. Read Less

          These filters fit very well on the suction side of a 20" box fan. One filter, some tape and a box fan go together to make an inexpensive and effective air filter to reduce the particulates and odor indoors during smokey wildfire events. It's not as attractive as the expensive air filtration devices, but pretty effective and well worth setting up if and when you have poor air quality due to fires.

          Viagrow plant saucers are placed under any self-draining potted plants. Plastic plant Saucers are great for potted succulents, flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables. Viagrow plastic saucers catch water runoff and media, protecting surfaces below the plastic plant saucer. The ribbed plant saucer bottom helps prevent pooling and aid in oxygen retention for the root zone. Viagrow plant saucers are available in 8 in., 10 in., 12 in., 14 in., 17 inch and we also offer a multi size pack VCS-25MP which includes 5 saucers of each size.

          These saucers are a simple way to take care of the water that drains through larger pots with drain holes. They are strong enough to support fairly heavy pots and the bottom has a bunch of ridges so water can flow from the drain hole(s) into the saucer. Since they are clear you can use them with any pot and not worry about matching the pot color and design. I'm not sure if they will hold up well over time, I've used other clear plastics in the past that yellowed and got brittle after months of sunlight exposure. These look like they might hold up pretty well.

          This is a very nice vanity light. The fixture is fairly large, especially the glass globes, but it looks great in a space that works with a light that's a little larger than most. The oval shaped base fits perfectly on a round wall light box. All the metal parts are smooth and are finished in polished chrome that looks great in a bathroom with chrome fixtures. The photos on the box show Edison-style bulbs that look nice in the pictures, but there are no bulbs included with the light so you'll need to pick out your own bulbs. The bulbs show completely inside the clear glass globes so you want to select something attractive.

          Answer: 
          This is almost entirely plastic (there's a threaded metal insert to bolt down the big part of the lid) so there would be no purpose to attach a ground wire.

          It will work for 220-240 volt circuits and that generator does have 220-240 volt output. Worst case for use would be that you might be limited to 3 circuits if the breakers have to be paired to handle the voltage.

You also need some more space on top for the pipe connections and pressure release valve. Plan for a total height of about 17 inches minimum to provide room for the piping.
