          Amazing technology using these jaws in conjunction with the long throw M18 Force Logic Press tool. When Home Depot finally offered set of rings this I immediately jumped on this and am scheduled to train with one of the company pipe fitters so I can get “up to speed” using my own set of larger press tools. In the interim I’m researching away literally book learning how this paradigm has shifted away from old school welding with mandatory permits and very intrusive restrictions are no longer major issues to commercially fit larger diameter steel piping.

          Amazing technology using these jaws in conjunction with the long throw M18 Force Logic Press tool. When Home Depot finally offered set of rings this I immediately jumped on this and am scheduled to train with one of the company pipe fitters so I can get “up to speed” using my own set of larger press tools. In the interim I’m researching away literally book learning how this paradigm has shifted away from old school welding with mandatory permits and very intrusive restrictions are no longer major issues to commercially fit larger diameter steel piping. This set of rings along with the long throw M18 press tool is extremely heavy in weight so 2 people minimum (sometimes 3 bodies!) are normally mandated where I work. Forget about using the 5 or 9amp M18 batteries with this tool …. you want as light as possible in weight especially when you are way up in the air joining cast iron pipe so be sure and have a few of the lighter weight 3-amp M18 packs for your job or project. First few project our lead supervisor mandates that the new guy simply watch and carefully observe. Reasons are obvious …. A ruined crimp costs a minimum of $75-200 for a replacement XL fitting. Each fitting weighs 2-5 pounds….wow! Short of these caveats this new tool technology will eliminate cumbersome torches, hoses, and tanks of gas. Cleanup alone makes pressing the obvious choice. The end result is with proper planning you can finish a job in a day or less. Amazing technology thanks to Milwaukee and Viega! Read Less
          Cons: Too Heavy, bulky but expected

          I have multiple pedestal bathroom sinks which require we remove the sink each time we have to snake out the drain when water eventually drains sluggishly. I don’t relish this task simply because I’ve been using solid chromed brass water supply lines which is more reliable against leaks and burst braided line.

          This is my first Symmons bathroom faucet and I must admit Symmons has a decent product when it comes to warranty, finish, and ease of install. I’ve installed more expensive bathroom fixtures where instructions are not neither intuitive nor easy to understand. Symmons provides large fully colored instructions with each of their faucets but more importantly this manufacturer provides a full five year warranty against parts and finish. I purposely avoid faucets where you cannot “quickly” obtain replacement parts locally and my supply house has a abundance of Symmons wear items such as replacement cartridges and hoses.

I purposely avoid faucets where you cannot “quickly” obtain replacement parts locally and my supply house has a abundance of Symmons wear items such as replacement cartridges and hoses. This gives me confidence I can at least repair or rebuilt the faucet at least multiple times. This Sophia faucet uses ceramic disk shutoffs which insures long life between cartridge failures due to dripping. Faucet outputs 1.2gpm which insures both water and energy savings. If you need a widespread bathroom faucet replacement you will not go wrong considering use of Symmons faucets Read Less

          Answer: 
          According to the Home Depot published spec's this LED ceiling light is indeed dimmable with a AC Triac enabled wall mounted dimming switch. You might want to ask Easton's web site support personnel just to validate this as my understanding is AC Triac's are used solely to switch high amp AC loads which this light is NOT!
