          This commercial hose is designed to withstand impacts, resist kinks and limit damaging abrasions. This hose can withstand the rigorous usage from a typical work site or be used in a normal garden setting. Heavy-duty crush-proof couplings along with a durable abrasion-resistant cover make this hose very popular with the demanding industrial trade. Added reinforcement gives this hose high burst strength for varying water pressures and long life on the job.

          A hose is a hose - but they are not all made alike

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          If you are in the market for a hose that doesn't kink, is long and strong. That will stand the test of time; I'm not really sure this product will work for you. The hose arrived, I plugged it into my outside faucet connections and tried to unroll it while it was on. That seemed to fail quickly as it kinked on itself very quickly.
          I also noticed a slightly reduced water flow as compared to my usual hose. (The sprinkler wasn't going as far as it usually does).
          Upon closer inspection I found the hose to be very weak walled, hence the quick to kink.
          I did really like the connection nut they use on this hose, its huge! And makes it really easy for me to move the hose from spigot to spigot.

          So if you need 100 feet of hose, that you don't mind fighting with as you unravel it or move sprinklers, this is the hose for you. Read Less

          Had a good wind storm that knocked over a fence post which had a good lean to it already. After searching for how to replace the post I came across the mender product. Grabbed 2 of them, some good outdoor screws and a mallet.
          Install was very easy, even in very tough Texas soil. Took me about 20 minutes to get the fence post repaired.
          Since installing the post itself is very solid and has held up to some strong 50+mph wind gusts during the recent tropical storm.

          I have owned a number of long reach watering wands in my life. I like to use these when hand watering my garden and potted plants as they provide reach to plants far away, and lets you provide water directly to the root system without spraying the leaves of the plants. (this can be important in places like Texas where sun can scald leaves with water on them).
          The Melnor watering wand has a plastic grip and water volume regulator, a metal wand extension connected to a pivoting plastic watering head.
          The patterns provided include a full blast, soaker, spray, mist, flat and a few others.

          The patterns provided include a full blast, soaker, spray, mist, flat and a few others.
          I knocked off a few stars because the water does not seem to be full power. Even the powerful blast is weak and only goes about 15 feet, while other hose end attachments on full go 25 -> 30.
          I knocked 1/2 a star for the odd bend in the metal extension wand. This seems like an odd design choice because the head itself pivots and moves. It just makes watering a little awkward.
          Lastly I knocked another 1/2 star off due to the handle & trigger. I'm sure it was designed to be 'ergonomic' but its a huge handle. As a male with larger hands I find it to be large. The trigger is also a very short throw, meaning you loose some of the fine control you expect from a trigger.
          I do like the latch for the trigger, and the options for watering. The wand itself is also not too heavy so folks who are looking for something that is light will like this. Read Less

          AA Battery powered vanilla scented LED candles. They appear to have real wax on them, and look very realistic. Great option for set-it and forget-it candles, not having to worry about burning your house down.
          Only rated 'good' because 1 of the 3 candles had its 6 hour timer break after a few weeks.
          Warning to those with Vizio TV's (M series for sure), the candles will react to volume up and channel up commands. Meaning if they are anywhere near the remote's line of sight, and you make changes to the TV channels, you are going to get the candles turning on a bunch.
          Pros: Looks Great, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design
          Cons: remote channel confusion

          Honestly I have tried the off brand electric tape and after 5 hours those start peeling away. Just what you want right? This brand of tape, while pennies more will hold for years. Only brand of tape I buy from now on

          for my situation the water level is only about three or maybe 4 inches deep. That's why I'm looking for a pump to pull it off the bottom

          Answer: 
          The water is pulled from the side of the pump housing. The location of the water inlet goes up about 1.5 inches (maybe 2 inches).

An 22 in. long, tempered steel blade features an ultra-sharp edge that will clear everything from light brush to heavy, woody growth. A lightweight design increases swing speed to help you clear brush more quickly, and a Softgrip handle provides excellent grip and comfortable use.
