          This Pond Bio Filter System with integrated 11W UV Clarifier is a pressurized biological filtration system for biological and mechanical filtering used for cleaning garden ponds with or without pond fish. Our pond filter system is designed to maintain a constant pressurized water flow using the range of filters to support the optimal clean water quality for healthy fish. The multifaceted system features a multi-stage filtration system with a vortex filter system, mechanical filter and biological filter to thoroughly eliminate harmful microorganisms and protect livestock from harmful parasites. The biological filter supplements bio-ball filter media to provide larger filtration area and promote growth of beneficial Bio-Spira bacteria. Before the water flows out of the system, it is exposed to ultraviolet radiation under the UV clarifier lamp to kill off germs and bacteria while inhibiting algae growth. Recommended for ponds and waterfalls up to 2500 Gal. as it can be placed in the water or outside of it.

          Lots of flexibility and good cleaning power. I added this to my pond and it has really cleaned things up in a hurry. It comes with a handful of connection options that you can cut to size (¾ to 1 ½ inch). It also includes a clear one that you use on the pond return that includes an orange spinner to show you the water and its movement. Easy to clean - you just twist the blue dial on the top and then push down. This squeezes the foam media inside.After a while you may need to open it up and rinse things but wringing out the media should cover most weeks. There is also about 4" of white plastic media balls for your beneficial bacteria to grow. This is locked in the base of the filter, which is Read More

There is also about 4" of white plastic media balls for your beneficial bacteria to grow. This is locked in the base of the filter, which is why I only provided 4 stars. I would have liked the option to open it up completely and be able to clean the bottom (not the balls - they have the bacteria colony). Anyways, very clear water. Easy to use. It is about 1.5' tall and about a foot wide. So keep that in mind when you are looking for a place to install. Read Less

          Looks great around my door. The garland is a very nice mix of evergreen, with red poinsettia flowers and berries, mixed with pine cones. Looks realistic. The lighting is not crazy bright but adds a warmth to the overall look. Using the battery pack is easy. The battery pack has 2 clasps and a velcro wrap, plus includes the button to turn the lights on or off or set on a timer. It is located at one end of the garland strand, which is nice - makes it easy to find. Each end of the strand have a metal loop so you easily hang or wrap it.

Not sure if its the battery housing that is not outside rated, or the lights or both. Either way you will need to make sure its protected.

          Battery powered Christmas wreath looks great and easy to use. First thing I like about the wreath is the nice battery compartment. Its easy to access and the clips plus velcro make it easy to swap batteries as needed. It also has a button on the back providing you with 3 settings, 1) timed lights, 2) on and 3) off.
          The red poinsettia flowers are bright, and nicely contrast the pine cone and pine greens found on the wreath. It also has a very sturdy metal back ring. I found it easy to hang on my door and the battery compartment was tucked away and invisible.

          Does a great job of not chewing up the wood when making sizable holes. The Milwaukee hole dozer hole saw does a very nice job of cutting through many types of wood. I was adding some lights to my arcade machine and needed to make some cuts in high density fiberboard (not MDF). This stuff is tough. I ended up cutting backwards because I found I was jumping a bit while cutting. The downside is you need to stop from time to time because it heats up faster. I had done some test cuts on regular 1x4 and it worked great in regular forward. No jumps. I'll also mention that it does not come with an arbor, but I had one already so it was easy to swap over and use with this. Remains sharp even after my Read More

          We strive to bring the best charcoals with a top-shelf product. Our charcoals generate significant heat, longer burning time in an environmentally responsible fashion. COCO-BBQ comes from a renewable resource, its production has zero impact on deforestation.

          Runs long and doesn't mind the heat. I use a couple of grills/items that use charcoal. This coconut charcoal with its long lasting higher heat qualities, I figured would be great for my pizza oven. I like to use a few chunks of charcoal to keep the oven hot and make it easy to jump to 900F by throwing in some pellets. My experience thus far has been very positive. When using other charcoals, they are spent after 30 minutes at 800-950F. This coconut charcoal is barely used after 30 minutes and still putting out heat.
          I've not had a chance to run in my weber smokey mountain, where I also use coal. But that burns so efficiently I probably would not bother.

          The blades on the polished nickel version look wood/brown color; but the info for all 3 says matt black. What color are the polished nickel version blades?

          Answer: 
          The blades are made of plastic. Under a light source they will look very dark brown. They have a wood look because there are different veins of black/brown grain running up the blades. I would not say they are pine or oak. Closer to an extremely dark walnut that has been stained darker.

          Yes - there is a switch on the control panel to turn the oven light on and off.
          Note the oven light does not automatically turn on when you open the oven door like a fridge might, instead you have to push the oven light button on the control panel.
