          We have struggled with water hammer ever since we bought our new washing machine. I installed copper hammer arrestors on the back of the machine and these worked for a few weeks, but then I had to drain the water to get them to work again. And even then it was for only a few washes before it started hammering again. These hoses have finally solved the problem, we have had them for over a month with no water hammer. The hoses have a built in water hammer arrestor and it seams to work much better than other types we have tried. We are very happy with them and happy to finally have a quiet washing machine.
          Pros: Easy to Install, works

          I really like the new LED lighting fixtures that take advantage of the new technology and not just try to replicate the old florescent bulbs. This panel is evenly lit by the LED bulbs. You just see an even panel of light. Since the light is evenly distributed it is easier on your eyes. This fits into the standard 2'x2' T bar ceiling so should be a direct swap of your old light fixture. Wiring is easy, wire it directly to a 120volt circuit. If the old florescent lights were wired in series off a central ballast then you will need to run wire for 120 volts or switch over all the lights and connect the 120 volt power in series. Lights in series will have yellow, red or blue wires connecting Read More

          The ETi LED Retrofit Kit Ballast Bypass Tubes can be retro fitted in existing fluorescent fixtures. These can be used in indoor fixtures for homes, shops, shop windows, restaurants, museums, galleries, meeting rooms, and hotel/motel locations. A great DYI project that will save you energy dollars.

          Overall this is a great product, it converts your old and flickering CFL light fixtures to instant on LED lights. The color of the light is a good soft color. It looks very similar to the CFL's except they will never flicker and are instant on a instant full brightness even when the garage is cold. CFL's are already pretty efficient so the energy savings to convert are not very significant.
          Converting the old fixture is very easy. With the power off, cut all the wires to the ballast. Remove the old lamp holders and replace with the new ones. These are a standard size and should work even for really old fixtures. Directly wire the lamp holders to the hot and neutral wires. The lamp holders Read More

These are a standard size and should work even for really old fixtures. Directly wire the lamp holders to the hot and neutral wires. The lamp holders have push in connectors so this is very easy. Use two extra wires to connect the second lamp holder. Only one side needs to be wired.
          This retrofit kit costs a little less than a plain LED fixture and a lot less than a drop ceiling fixture. I don't really like the appearance of the exposed bulbs and prefer the new flat panel LED lights, but these cost about twice as much. Read Less
          Pros: easy, lower cost and less installation than new fixture

          The Milwaukee Hole Dozer Bi-Metal Hole Saw features Rip Guard, an exceptionally strong tooth form backed by the Rip Guard Limited Lifetime Tooth Break Warranty. Each tooth is built with extra steel behind the cutting edge for added strength. This enhanced strength along with 8% cobalt help extend the life of the teeth, allowing for increased productivity on the job site as well as continued hole quality. The Hole Dozer also includes Plug Jack, an all-access slot design that allows for full access during plug removal. This provides access lower into the cup for thick material and higher towards the teeth for thin material. With multiple positions to apply leverage and better plug access, Plug Jack improves productivity and eliminates wasted downtime between holes.

          I switched to the Milwaukee hole saws a few years back because I like that there are so many sizes available. This kit should cover just about all your needs. These bits will easily cut through wood. Metal is a bit harder, but will be cut. I drilled a few holes for a new electrical panel board, the metal was 14 to 16 gauge steel. Steel this thick will dull the saw after a few holes, but you can purchase a replacement of the same size. It's good that so many sizes are in stock. The teeth are designed to clear the material and not gum up. I have used these hole saws many times on a variety of materials with great success.
          Pros: Durable, Strong, easily replaceable

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This is a good toilet seat, but the night light design is flawed and will fail in a few months due to liquid, especially if you have boys, getting in and corroding the circuit board. It's probably not an easy fix, but the circuit board really does need to be encased in plastic or other means to make the design liquid tight. The light is a good idea and we did like it when it worked. The timer is simple to set and keeps the light on for about 7 hours each night. This timer function works fine and is bright enough to see the toilet in the dark. The seat is of good quality and the quiet close works well.
          I recommend purchasing a regular Kohler soft close toilet seat for about $10 less. The Read More

          this pump as opposed to all the others of similar design/type says hardware required "yes" What hardware is required that is either unnecessary or provided in the other similar pumps

          Answer: 
          The discharge is 2" female pipe thread. It also comes with an adapter that is 1.5" female pipe thread. You need a hose or pipe that is 1.5" or 2" male pipe thread on the end to connect. Also include a check valve.
          For electrical, it just plugs in, preferably to a GFI outlet.

          How do you adjust the float

          I bought a unit yesterday and installed. I have a 30" basin and this model was suggested. I ran the water to watch the pump operate and the water level gets to the inflow pipe level before turning on. Although there is no water backlash, I was wondering how and or if I can adjust the float to come on before the water level rises to the inflow pipe.

          Answer: 
          The float cord is clamped to the unit. It just hangs there so it's not adjustable. The water level needs to reach about 12" deep to start the pump and will pump it out to about 6" and then turn off.
