          We use these Everbilt 1/2 in. copper pressure tube cap fittings in both temporary and permanent usage. As I am remodeling my bathroom, I use them temporarily to close off pipe cuts and allow the bath to still be
          used. Then as the permanent need arises, we use them for pipe terminations, like an old toilet pipe that had to be terminated. These caps clean (use round wire brush) and solder easily. If they don't easily go on, the pipe is either deformed or not deburred correctly. Do use flux on the cap and pipe.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, solder easily

          The lead-free Copper Tube and/or Pipe Strap accommodates 1/2 in. pipe. The durable copper construction provides long-lasting reliability. Perfect for securing copper pipe in residential and commercial environments such as potable water, air conditioning and refrigeration. These copper straps offer low-maintenance, dezincification resistance and reusability making it ideal for sustainable projects.

          We used these Everbilt 1/2 in. copper pipe bracket fittings in our bathroom remodel. We took the room down to the joists and studs, so we used these to tightly secure all old and new copper pipe. We used these to ensure that there was no dissimilar metal corrosion that might occur with other methods. These brackets perfectly secure 1/2" copper pipe as they are a "snap" fit onto the pipe which makes them very easy to install. I can attest that we have a bathroom with two vanity sinks, two showers and one toilet, and none of the pipes rattle. Also, the plumbing inspector was very pleased with the tight installation that these allowed.
          Pros: Easy to Install, grips pipe tight, copper to copper fitting, holds tight

          Oatey is our go-to brand for plumbing installations. We used this toilet flange in our hall bathroom remodel. We picked it mainly due to the steel mounting ring.

          Industrial settings create industrial levels of grease on machinery and surfaces. Pros know that the powerful solvents in Industrial Purple Degreaser and Cleaner quickly dissolve grease. This shop grade formula makes quick work of small jobs.

          We find ZEP products are recommended by various tradesmen. A mechanic recommended the ZEP degreaser. I don't tend to have too many degreaser issues around the house except for old automobiles and garage floors. Do use with good ventilation and safety protection for skin and eyes. It comes with a safety data sheet so read that first. It does a great job, generally without brushing. You might have to brush heavy deposits a little, but by and large it just takes the gook off. Excellent price for a 32 oz bottle.
          Pros: good price, works quick, comes w/ sds

          These nitrile disposable gloves are listed as 2XL which they may be as they stretch, but they seemed more like a XL glove in practice. I'd recommend ordering one size larger if you will be taking the gloves off and putting them back on, as I do. They are durable but thin enough to allow one to easily function. I use them in the garage for car work, and during our master bath remodel. Generally, a pair will last all day or longer. They do a good job of protecting your skin from the nicks, stains and dings of DIY work. We keep them handy.
          Pros: Durable, great for diyers

          The HC660 HydroClean Toilet Fill Valve solves the two biggest reasons for water loss in toilets; miscalibration and leaks. It easily calibrates to adjust the exact amount of water needed in the tank, refills quickly and jets clean the tank. A unique feature is the leak detection and signals when a leak is found. It is designed to fit most standard toilets and the height can be adjusted from 11 in. to 13.8 in. The HC660 installs easily without tools.

          Will light function correctly if mounted in a shaded area? How sensitive is the dusk to dawn sensor? I have a bunch of trees and the sunshine is never directly on my buildings, will this light still turn off in the morning or will it just stay on all of the time?
          Can the sensor be removed and mounted somewhere where the sun might hit it?
          Can the light be returned if the sensor doesn't turn the light off during the daytime if it's mounted in a shaded area?

          We don't have any issues with the typical shade. It might go on slightly earlier or go off slightly later, but it is fairly sensitive to daylight, even with clouds. Home Depot is always excellent about returns, just stay within the return day range.
