          This is a nice looking lighter weight rug with a nice soft synthetic fiber cut pile. The carpet fibers are soft and the intricate pattern looks nice and should help mask wear over time. The thickness and construction seems similar to "outdoor rugs" that I've tried, but this rug is nicer looking and feels nicer than most outdoor rugs.
          I have this rug in a high traffic area in our living room and expect it to hold up well. The pile is relatively short, so my robot vacuum is able to clean it without issue and does not get stuck.
          The cut pile seems to survive well with cats, as my cats have destroyed loop pile carpets and rugs, but don't seem to want to claw at this rug.

          The gray color and intricate design look nice in our living room.
          The one minor issue I had with this rug, which I have not had with any other rug, is that when unrolled, it did not lay flat after a day. Even after a week of laying on the floor, it still have some waves across the carpet. The backing of the carpet seems to have retained some bends when it was rolled up, and it's taking quite a while for it to flatten out.
          The carpet does slide a little on my tile floor, so I'm going to use some double sided carpet tape to hold it down and try to flatten in out.
          Otherwise, this is a nice, good looking area rug. Read Less

          Sophisticated and stylish, this 3-piece conversation set from the Beachside collection will elevate the look and function of your outdoor space. An all-weather hand-woven open weave wicker back on the lounge chairs offers elegance while galvanized steel frames provide long-lasting durability. CushionGuard fabric on cushions is fade and UV-resistant. The side table has an umbrella hole with a removable cover which gives you the option to use with or without an umbrella. The umbrella base will be hidden underneath the table's wicker shelf. The tile table top looks like concrete and the table has an all-weather open weave wicker shelf.

          This is a very nice outdoor patio set. The painted steel looks good, and will hold up much better outdoors than my current wood patio furniture.
          The set comes in a large box with the pieces packed very compactly. My 10 year old daughter helped me put the set together, which was very simple and took less than 20 minutes.
          The cushions and pillows are nice and thick and are more comfortable than my current outdoor patio chairs. The taupe colored fabric is nice looking, but I am going to have to look for patio furniture covers to protect them, as they will get dirty outdoors. We occasionally have fires in CA that will cause ash to rain down and ruin any light colored fabric Read More

We occasionally have fires in CA that will cause ash to rain down and ruin any light colored fabric outdoors.
          The small table is nice, with steel frame and porcelain tile top, but I'm a bit puzzled by the gray color of the table top. It looks fine, but it doesn't seem to match the colors of the rest of the set.
          Note that an umbrella can be placed in the center of the table, but this set does NOT come with an umbrella or a weighted base for an umbrella. The area under the "rope" portion of the table is 14" x 14" x 5" H, so if you want an umbrella installed on the table, you'll need to find a weighted umbrella base that will fit in that space under the table. I'm just going to get a standard size umbrella stand/base and setup an umbrella away from the table.
          If you are shopping for outdoor patio furniture and considering wood or metal, I strongly recommend metal. Prior to getting this set, I have one steel and one wood, and the lower cost wood furniture just doesn't hold up outdoors, whereas the steel has been great. Read Less

          Add a pop of color to your deck or patio and stay cool at the same time with the 9 ft. Crank and Tilt Patio Umbrella in Riverbed Taupe. Featuring a polyester fabric canopy that is weather and fade-resistant, this umbrella will provide lasting protection and charm. It is equipped with a tilt function to position the umbrella at your desired angle and the crank makes it easy to close when not in use.

          This seems like a nice, simple patio umbrella. It is simple, fairly light weight, and a good size for the patio in my back yard.
          NOTE: This umbrella does NOT come with a weighted base / stand. You'll need to purchase a base separately.
          The umbrella fabric feels fairly light weight. The description says it is a polyester fabric that is "weather and fade resistant", and the umbrella comes with a 2 year fabric / frame warranty. Based on my experience with the sun destroying outdoor fabrics, I will probably keep the umbrella indoors when not in use to make it last longer.

          The Flex Series Ventilation fan with LED lighted CleanCover grille clears the air with a low profile, streamline design. Say good-bye to unsightly standard grilles that catch dust and debris and can be a hassle to clean. With CleanCover your fan cover stays cleaner for longer with fewer vent slots to clean and design that coordinates with any decor. Designed for retrofit, remodel and replacement, this fan features hassle-free installation from the room side, for spaces with no attic access. The SnapFit Flange Kit, EzDuct connector and FoldAway mounting ears make it flexible to almost any installation challenge, especially for rooms on the first floor or basement floor of the home. Each carton comes complete with a precise template for accurate housing opening ceiling cut. The SnapFit Flange Kit provides a self-trimming finish to cover a rough cut. Color: White.

          This is a nice looking high quality bathroom fan. The design is very similar to the several other NuTone fans I've installed over the years, but this one has an all plastic fan impeller and shroud, versus metal parts in the other NuTone models I've used. It looks like the plastic design allows for a better fan design that reduces noise while improving airflow / CFM.
          I chose the 110 CFM model without realizing there was an 80 CFM model. The 80 CFM model would probably be plenty for my master bath, but the 110 CFM model seems to be very quiet, so I'm happy with it.
          This fan can be installed as "new construction" or retrofit.

          This fan can be installed as "new construction" or retrofit.
          The product photos made it difficult to judge the color of the plastic fan cover, but the plastic cover is the standard off-white plastic. The light in the center of the fan cover is an LED module that pops into the cover. It's rated at 11W, which is similar to a 60W-70W equivalent LED bulb. The module is fairly bright, but because it is a relatively small light source, I chose to install a separate recessed ceiling light in my bathroom to provide additional light.
          I've tried two other brands of bathroom fans, but I prefer the NuTone models, as I know the NuTone models simple to install, relatively quiet, reliable, and replacement parts are readily available.
          This model has a 3 year warranty. Read Less

          The SmartBidet SB-2600 features unlimited and on-demand heated water. Heated seat, water, and dryer are adjustable to your choosing. Take control of your functions with the easy Touch attached control panel. Through the stainless steel, self-cleansing nozzle, each wash infuses pockets of air bubbles, which results in power behind the wash. Upgrade your bathroom hygiene teachings to your children from a young age with the automatic Child button. The lid and seat are both soft closing. For most not all standard elongated toilets. May fit some round toilets but not French Curve toilets. Color: White.

          This bidet seat is a full featured model that appears to have all the bells and whistles. This is the first bidet seat I've owned, and since I don't yet know which features I'll want, I figured a model with all the features would be the easiest option. A few friends have raved about their bidet seats and think they are the fantastic, so I am finally getting around to having one.
          The main reason that I haven't tried a bidet seat before is the lack of power outlets near the toilets in my bathrooms, and most of the electronic bidet seats require an AC outlet.

A few friends have raved about their bidet seats and think they are the fantastic, so I am finally getting around to having one.
          The main reason that I haven't tried a bidet seat before is the lack of power outlets near the toilets in my bathrooms, and most of the electronic bidet seats require an AC outlet. I'm currently remodeling my master bath, so I had my contractor install an outlet on the wall next to the toilet so that I can finally use an electronic bidet. If I like this one, I may have an outlet installed in my downstairs bathroom so that I install a bidet seat there as well.
          The bidet seat attaches to most toilets, replacing the standard seat and lid. Note that the bidet does seem to need some extra space near the toilet seat mounting area, so if you have a single-piece toilet (without a separate tank), I would recommend verifying that you have clearance behind the toilet seat. The SmartBidet.net web site has instructions for measuring your toilet before you purchase, so I would recommend reviewing those measurement instructions.
          The bidet comes with all of the hardware and hoses and fittings to attach the seat and connect to the toilet water lines. The water line connects into the left side of the seat (as you are facing the toilet), and the power cord connects to the right side of the seat. The seat comes with 2 or 3 different water connection options to work with different toilet water supplies, and installation looks very straightforward.
          One feature that seemed important to me was the "unlimited & on-demand" heated water, while my wife will likely appreciate the heated seat. The seat apparently has a "skin sensor", which detects when you sit on the seat. The "Adjustable Heated Dryer" feature also looks interesting. One other reason I chose this model was for the integrated control panel. I did not want to have a separate remote control to operate the seat.
          The bidet seat has a 1 year warranty and is made in Korea.
          My bathroom remodel is going to take a few more weeks to be completed, but I'm looking forward to trying the bidet seat in my new bathroom! Read Less

          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

          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. Color: Graphite Steel.

          Answer: 
          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.

          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.
