          Bruce Water-Proof Engineered Hardwood with Hydropel Technology is made from 100% wood construction and is water-proof up to 36 hours, providing extended protection against every day spills. Hydropel Technology allows you to enjoy the beauty of hardwood in every room of the home, including kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, while giving you confidence it will stand up to lifes everyday spills and accidents. Using a three-part system, Hydropel Technology protects against surface water damage by implementing a tight locking system, a water-proof, hyper-dense wood core and coated backing, and using a proprietary coating on plank edges to seal out water. To preserve its beauty for a lifetime, a performance coating is applied to each plank to prevent scuffs scratches, and stains. This coating adds a durable layer of protection between the natural hardwood and the uncertainty of everyday life, allowing you to live worry-free when it comes to protecting your floors. Color: Taupe.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The edges are like crayon. The locking end was gone completely from one of the smaller length boards and there were gouges in the finish of others. I was shocked when I picked them up after experimenting with them to find that the locking edges crumbling on several planks. I also noticed raising which became obvious was poor quality veneer. Avoid this product.

          This 22 in. Galvanized Metal and Glass Lantern makes a lovely addition to any outdoor space. The timeless yet durable galvanized metal construction is durable enough to be used both indoors and outdoors. Use it to accent your tabletop, patio, terrace or pathway or hang it by its handle to add a dash of sophistication wherever you need it. It holds a 4 in. or smaller pillar candle (sold separately).

          At first glance this lantern is a farmhouse decor fantasy. The design looks terrific literally anywhere you can fit it, indoor or out. It's very lightweight and there are so many things you could use it for; large candles, as a flower display, or to display other items like holiday decor. It does not come with a candle holder. The problem with it is that it is very off-square. The handle is sturdy enough for hanging, but the unit does not sit flat (teeters slightly) and the door latches but does not lay flat against the body of the lantern. I absolutely love the design but the quality is not the best.

          A great accent to any outdoor space, this small outdoor bamboo lantern is the perfect centerpiece. Featuring a top metal handle, this lantern can be configured in a number of different ways-set it on its base or hang it in front of your home for an inviting ambiance and enchanting glow. The mixed material construction coordinates well with a number of different styles.

          Absolutely gorgeous lanterns. They definitely look better in pairs. And since they are bamboo, they are great indoors or out. Just be aware that although they are solid on their base, they are very lightweight and definitely not wind friendly. The candle cups/globes are also secure in the lantern's interior wire/rod base (I left the packing paper on them so you can easily see where they sit inside). I am going to look for some battery powered LEDs to put in them for the holidays. Right now I have them in from of my family room fireplace but have a half dozen spots in the house, and another half dozen outside the house, where they'd look amazing.

          This design unfortunately didn't work for my specific exterior sump (flood water) drainage application because I need a hook that fastens from the back of the J (opposite of this) to attach to vinyl siding. But this product is durable and fits the pipe with precision. I will order the proper Oatey J-Hook hanger for my application or go look for it in-store.

          The secret to cleaner indoor air is to prevent dirt and dust particles from entering into your home's HVAC system. It is not uncommon for a home to have more than a dozen floor register vents. Dirt, hair, bugs and carpet fibers easily fall into your home's floor registers and make their way into the ductwork of the house.
           

          Can these be used in ceiling vents to avoid dust to come in the house when system is on?

          Answer: 
          They can, but they don't work with vents that shutter closed (floor or ceiling). You may need to purchase a different vent type to filter the air. For reference, these are just a flat loose filter, similar to a thick kitchen scrub sponge but more loosely woven. I hope this helps.

          Hi. You've reached the Home Depot question platform where other consumers answer your questions. I am not sure they make another version but, on this one, the ice maker can be turned off. I've used my own trays when I didn't want to just let it run. Hope this helps!

          Answer: 
          I moved from the house where I installed this so I can't measure the exact space created by the track hardware, but as long as you have a typical thermostat, you should be fine. I had a pic that was 1 or 1.5 inches thick behind the door when it was open. The pic was at least the depth of a typical honeywell thermostat (for reference).
