          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I got the Animated Talking Raven in Cage because I saw the video of it in a home depot store back in 2017 after the fact and could not get one as this is a seasonal product and after the season is over you have to wait until the next season and hope it goes up for sale again.
          So I was really psyched and even planned on connecting it to a fake door bell to scare people who ring the bell.
          It is supposed to be a 10-in. animated raven. With the cage covered in tattered gauze.
          The cage is not covered in tattered gauze, and even though the raven has wires that can be seen going into it, it does not work which is to say it is not animated so it just sits their and does not do any thing.

          All it does do is the speaker plays noises, talks and 2 led lights flash.
          How ever that does not match the product description of what it should do and how it should look and work.
          Needless to say I am quite disappointed.
          I was going to make a video of this product in action, but as it is not working their is no point in making a video of it not working.

          The Oatey 16 oz. Transition Cement joins ABS and PVC pipe. The solvent cement is ideal for applications where the structure is plumbed in ABS and the local sewer system is plumbed in PVC. Includes a dauber stem for application.

          I got the The Oatey 16 oz. Transition Cement that joins ABS and PVC pipe.
          It is advertised as being ideal for applications where the structure is plumbed in ABS and the local sewer system is plumbed in PVC.
          Before you purchase it you should check your local building codes to make sure transition cement is allowed.
          storage and use must be between 40 - 100 Deg F.
          it should be stirred or shaken before use, and be disguarded if it is gelled.
          This product can not be thinned.
          pipe should be cut square and chamfered , make sure to check dry pipe fitting,
          pipe should go easily up into fittings until it bottoms out, parts should fit snugly.

          pipe should go easily up into fittings until it bottoms out, parts should fit snugly.
          coat both parts, avoid puddling, and assemble quickly, while cement is still a liquid.
          parts can be pushed in straight or be rotated.
          hold parts together for 30 seconds, 15 min. until parts can be handled, and 2 hours for full cure.
          EXPLOSIVE VAPORS - do not smoke, expose to heat, sparks and or flame
          use in a open area or if ventilating use explosion proof equipment, wear NOSH respirators for organic solvents.
          protection should be used to prevent skin contact.
          Now for why I got it, I have 2000 liter a hour filter systems for large turtle tanks where abs plastic transitions into cpvc, of course at the transition point it can have a leak and air can get into the system or water can leak out.
          Since pvc pipe cement does not bond well to abs plastic I got this product to try out.
          This did indeed bond the two together, now the only question is how long will the bond hold and how strong is it.
          How ever the answer to that question could take 6 months to a year or more, so at this point I am calling it good.

          it is made from what seems to be nylon and looks just like the picture on the box.
          I would say 12 feet tall is accurate and it seems to fill up well enough.
          Once disconnected from power it deflates just as fast as it inflates.
          I took the pictures and made the video late at night / early in the morning as its purpose is to be used after dark.

          Answer: 
          Ok, so their is a bit of confusion here.
          Yes this comes with the drain, no it is not a pop up, it is lever controlled.
          a pop up drain requires you to stick your hand in the sink it self and push on it causing it to pop up as it is spring actuated not lever actuated.
          As far as a over flow goes, that has to do with your sink not the faucet, so if your sink does not have a over flow hole and you need one

          As far as a over flow goes, that has to do with your sink not the faucet, so if your sink does not have a over flow hole and you need one with a over flow hole then you need a new sink.
          as their is no such thing as a over flow hole add on kit, as that would require cutting a hole in the top side of the sink then connecting it to tubing that would go into the top of the drain.
          I hope this clears up any confusion.

          Henry 887 Tropi-Cool 100% Silicone White Roof Coating is a premium, 100% silicone, moisture-cure coating designed to reflect the sun's heat and UV rays as well as protect many types of roofs. While suitable for use in all climates, the 100% silicone chemistry is especially suited for extreme tropical environments, which are exposed to some of the hottest and wettest weather with intense UV exposure. It is specially designed to maintain maximum reflectivity of heat and UV rays as it ages. Its moisture-cure chemistry creates a very aggressive chemical bond with the roof, which allows for permanent ponding water resistance, extreme durability, and superior capabilities of sealing and protection.
