          This standard HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of Whirlpool filter model Filter 5. Certified against NSF/ANSI 42 for the reduction of Chlorine taste and odor to ensure high quality and performance. This high quality economical filter will deliver fresh, crisp, clean tasting water and ice cubes that you can trust for your family. Engineered with the power of 0.5 Micron coconut shell carbon block, this filter provides tremendous capacity to reduce impurities, sediment and rust that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge and can hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are receiving the cleanest and best tasting water possible for you and your family. Easy DIY installation filter with a life capacity of 300 Gal. or 6 months, whichever precedes. Using this filter will replace 1500 water bottles reducing the amount of plastic waste in our landfills.  This filter fits the following Whirlpool Filter models: FILTER 5, 4396510, 4396508, 8212491, 4392857, KitchenAid: 4396163, 4396547, 8212491, Thermoform: 491879, Kenmore: 46-9010, 46-9902, 46-9908, Maytag: 8212652, Puriclean: IV, 8212652.

          I have an older Whirlpool refrigerator with the water filter located at the bottom of the fridge. This filter was a perfect replacement, and only took a few seconds to replace.
          This HDX filter appears to meet the same NSF / ANSI 42 standards as other filters I've been buying online, but this HDX model is more economical.
          I replace my refrigerator water filter every 6 months, as I found that the ice maker will have problems if the filter isn't replaced regularly.
          This is a great, convenient filter option from Home Depot that works well in my refrigerator.

          I really like these inflatable holiday decorations. They only take a few minutes to unbox and setup, require zero assembly, my kids and the neighbors' kids like the fun designs, and they pack up into a relatively compact box that I can easily store until next year.
          This "Holiday Unicorn" is a unique twist on a holiday design, but it's a fun design. The while fabric makes it nice and bright when lit at night, and the wreath and rainbow colored tail and mane are nice and colorful.

          This is a fantastic beach tent. I wish I would have one of these years ago.
          I've had a traditional beach umbrella for 10 years. An umbrella works, but it needs a separate sand anchor, and it's a hassle to carry, setup, and pack up. And the umbrella only works well when the sun is overhead, but not very well in the morning or late afternoon when the sun comes in at an angle. And an umbrella doesn't do anything for wind, other than become a big sail.
          This beach tent appears to solve several of the hassles I've had with my beach umbrella. First, the tent comes with a carrying case with a handle, so it will be easier to carry out on the beach. Second, it doesn't require a sand anchor or Read More

First, the tent comes with a carrying case with a handle, so it will be easier to carry out on the beach. Second, it doesn't require a sand anchor or digging to setup. You just unfold it and pull two cords, and it semi-automatically expands and pops open. The tent has folding plastic 'poles' that are integrated into the tent fabric, so there is nothing to assemble.
          Once setup, this beach tent has a nylon fabric floor, screened vents / windows on each side, and a half dome design that can block the sun from the top, sides and the back. It also comes with some small stakes to affix it to the ground.
          Packing the tent up is just as easy as setting it up. Just pop out the plastic mechanism at the top of the tent and fold up the integrated poles, rollup the fabric, and slide the single piece back into the carrying case.
          I look forward to taking this tent to the beach! Read Less

          My daughter recently remodeled her bedroom in a teal and white theme and wanted a board for dry erase markers and chalk markers. This white acrylic sheet is a nice color match for her room, and I am hoping that it works well as a 'marker board'.
          The sheet came with a blue plastic protective film on both sides of the acrylic. The film is easy to peel off, leaving a perfectly smooth glossy bright white acrylic finish.
          The acrylic sheet is nice and large for this particular use, so I am going to cut this 4' long sheet into a shorter piece to hang on the wall.

          We tested typical dry erase markers on the acrylic sheet, and they wrote perfectly well on the smooth, glossy surface. And the dry erase marker ink easily wiped off of the sheet using a microfiber rag. We will be buying some chalk markers to test those on the acrylic, but I expect them to work well on the smooth surface.
          The thickness of this sheet is perfect for my project, since the acrylic isn't too heavy and should hang on the wall nicely. This 0.118 in thick sheet does flex, so if you need something that is rigid and doesn't flex, you'll want to get something thicker. Read Less

          The MILWAUKEE M12 FUEL SURGE ¼” Hex Hydraulic Driver is the industry's first 12-volt hydraulic impact driver. Featuring the FLUID-DRIVE Hydraulic Powertrain, the hydraulic impact will allow users to experience operation up to 2X quieter with less vibration for smoother and faster driving speeds compared to standard impacts. The compact size of the tool and battery provides users with unmatched access in tight spaces and allows for easy transport on a tool belt and easy fitting into a job site tool bag. Performance is not sacrificed despite lower peak torque due to its Longer Sustained Torque that allows the tool to complete core users most common applications. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor delivers up to 0-3,000 RPM with constant power output to drive screws faster. Built-in REDLINK PLUS Intelligence is the most advanced electronic system on the market, preventing damage to the user's tool and battery caused by overloading or overheating. The cordless impact driver is compatible with all Milwaukee M12 REDLITHIUM Compact Batteries or Extended Capacity Batteries, delivering users with more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than competitive batteries. In addition to the M12 FUEL SURGE ¼” Hex Hydraulic Driver, this kit includes two M12 REDLITHIUM CP2.0 batteries and a contractor bag.

          I wish I would have considered getting the Milwaukee M12 tools sooner!
          My favorite impact driver has been the Milwaukee M18 FUEL SURGE--it is so quiet and the speed setting makes it so easy to control the driver. It's a fantastic tool, and I'll never be able to go back to the older loud drivers.
          I now realize that for the types of small projects that I do, this M12 Impact Driver is an even better tool for me. It's a bit lighter and it's smaller, making it that much easier to use for quick projects or work in cramped spaces. Most of the time I only need to use the impact driver for a few minutes at a time over the course of a few hours. I am very rarely using an impact driver Read More

It's a bit lighter and it's smaller, making it that much easier to use for quick projects or work in cramped spaces. Most of the time I only need to use the impact driver for a few minutes at a time over the course of a few hours. I am very rarely using an impact driver continuously for 30 minutes or more, so I rarely need the larger batteries available for the M18 tools. I recently had to help a friend with a small project, and I happily grabbed the M12 and its carrying case and put it in my car.
          The specs on this M12 Impact Driver appear to match the specs on the M18 FUEL SURGE Impact Driver, so this more compact model doesn't appear to sacrifice any performance. This M12 driver is just as quiet as my M18 model, and the feel and control are just as good.
          This model has the speed selector on the top of the motor housing, and it has the battery level display on the tool handle, instead of the meters built into the M18 batteries.
          My only very minor criticism is that this M12 driver includes a relatively small, oddly shaped belt clip. While it is a more compact belt clip than the larger M18 model, the smaller hook is not as easy to hook on my belt or pocket.
          I tested the performance and power of this M12 to my M18 model, and the M12 was easily able to drive 2.5" drywall screws into two 2x4s. It drove the screws into the wood and back out of the wood with ease, exactly like the M18 model. The performance is phenomenal.
          It's a fantastic tool, and I'm now going to look into getting the Milwaukee M12 drill to use as a compact option to my larger M18 drill. Read Less

          When it comes to laundry capacity, big is good, bigger is better, but biggest is best. With the largest capacity washer in its class, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load. At 4.5 cu. ft. of mega capacity, you will definitely have more room to clean.

          I just did a test, adding only two hand towels and a small washcloth, and then selecting the Speed Wash cycle. The towels looked tiny in the massive tub of this machine.
          The machine ran through its Sensing process to detect the amount of laundry, and then automatically added water.
          I don't know how many gallons were added, but there was 5 inches of water in the tub, and there is additional water Read More

          I don't know how many gallons were added, but there was 5 inches of water in the tub, and there is additional water under and around the tub. The Speed Wash cycle showed an estimated time of under 28 minutes.
          Given the size and high capacity design of this machine, I don't think it's ideal for small loads--it seems to be designed for large loads. But it does appear to be able to adjust to relatively small loads.
          If I need to wash one or two things, I usually grab some towels from the bathrooms or kitchen and throw them in. Read Less

          The wash time varies by load, and the displayed time goes up and down during the wash cycle, but based on the loads I've done so far, it seems like 75 minutes is typical for a "normal" wash cycle. It seems to range from 60-90 minutes though.
          That is just the displayed / estimated time. I haven't actually timed the full wash cycle to compare the time displayed on the panel at the beginning of the cycle Read More

          It does not have the center agitator, and as a result, the tub can hold a lot more laundry than my old machine with an agitator. I've attached a few photos of the tub. It seems like it has nearly double the capacity of my old 3.9 cu ft washing machine--what I previously did in two loads, I can do with one full load in this machine.

          When it comes to laundry capacity, big is good, bigger is better, but biggest is best. With the largest capacity washer in its class, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load. At 4.5 cu. ft. of mega capacity, you will definitely have more room to clean.
           

          Does this machine have an internal/built in water heater?

          Answer: 
          No, it does not have a water heater. It requires a cold and hot water connection.
