          Make your hot water last longer while cleverly savings thousands of gallons a year. This shower head's integrated ShowerStart TSV technology, elegant styling, high-nozzle-count spray face and high-pressure performance (regardless of your home's water pressure), forever changes the things that bother you most about your shower. With this nifty little life-hack installed in your shower, gone are the days of standing around waiting for the water to get hot. Gone are the days of family members letting the shower run endlessly, when no one's in it. Gone are the days getting the last shower of the morning and running out of hot water. Enjoy more freedom, comfort and convenience - both before and during your shower. Size: 4.25 In.. Color: Chrome.

          I ordered the Evolve Technologies 3.25 inch evolve 3-Spray showerhead with Showerstart Technology in an attempt to appease my wife who constantly complains about the long wait for hot water in her shower. To be fair it is the farthest bathroom from the hot water heater and while the new shower head doesn't make the wait any shorter she is really happy with it. What it does do is cut the shower stream to a diminutive dribble once the water has heated up. This feature signals that your shower is hot and prevents waste if you are not quite ready to hop in.

Once you are in a little tug on the plastic encased pull cable and you're in business While the showerhead is described as a 3-spray it is actually only two (body massage and shower spray) with a pause setting - not a deal breaker in my opinion. It is simple to install (5 minutes), the instructions are good and the box even includes plenty of the required teflon tape thread sealer. For those of you who can't abide by the meager flow provided by a 1.5 gpm head be advised there is no washer to remove to increase the flow. All in all it is a quality built nice looking showerhead with a little added technology but most importantly - the wife likes it. Read Less

          Had new granite countertops installed earlier this year and before the installers left they advised using a granite surface cleaning/treatment product (which we totally did not do). Now almost six months in and noticing our new counters require more than just a quick wipe with the kitchen sink sponge to keep them from acquiring a shine dulling film when they dry I ordered the Granite Gold Clean and Shine. Problem solved. After an initial elbow grease assisted cleaning now all we do is a quick spritz of Granite Gold with a paper towel wipe down every two or three evenings after the dishes are done.

          The Lightshow 61 Effects Remote Controlled Christmas Snowflake Projector is a great way to ramp up your home's Christmas holiday spirit. It is easy to set up, comes with every thing you need to get started and if you ask me the best feature is its remote control unit (no venturing out into the cold to turn on, change the display or turn the device off). It takes longer to unpack the box and peek at the instructions than it does to set it up - the only real challenge (about 20 seconds) was installing the included battery in the remote.

It takes longer to unpack the box and peek at the instructions than it does to set it up - the only real challenge (about 20 seconds) was installing the included battery in the remote. Operation is simple with the three button remote - the big round button allows you to scroll through the colors (white, green, red and blue) and color combinations; the middle button lets you choose the "effects"; and the small square outside button is the on/off switch. The projector itself is relatively stout and should hold up well under most winter conditions. It is mounted to a combination tri-pod/stake device that could be beefier - as a tri-pod it seems a tad wobbly (but effective) and if you set the base up a stake I feel it should be a couple of inches longer. I would have rated it five stars if the stake design was more heavy duty. Can't wait for the holidays Read Less

          While I am by no means a ceiling fan authority I have installed enough of these things to know which ones are good ones and which ones are not so much. The Mickelson 52" Integrated LED Light Indoor Brushed Nickel Dual Mount Ceiling Fan by Aire falls into the first category. The finishes and fit are excellent - no exposed casting burs or flash on any of the metal parts, no sketchy paint coverage nor any issues with sub standard screws or hole threads. The box comes with everything you need (and expect) like the battery for the remote, extra fasteners in case you lose one, a small blade balancing kit and best of all great instructions.

Swapping out an old tired looking Hunter took less than 45 minutes including rounding up everything I needed (step ladder, phillips head screw driver and needle nose pliers), getting a good handle on the instructions, installation and cleanup. The only real issues I had were with the somewhat anemic light (maybe as bright as a single 60 watt incandescent bulb) and the clunky style of the art deco-ish fan blade mounts. They're growing on me though. The wife is pleased with it and that is pretty much all that matters. Read Less

          The GearWrench 16-Piece Metric Master Ratcheting Wrench Set need just 5 degrees of movement to turn fasteners, thanks to their small box end design for access in tight spots. The Surface Drive design prevents rounding of fasteners, and these wrenches can be used along any length of a threaded rod without having to move the wrench from the fastener. The wrenches come in a molded package tray, and they're backed by a lifetime warranty.

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          Sure but you'll need a really tall step ladder. My guess is you are concerned about whether they will provide enough light from 19' up. Can't say but at 8.5' on the highest daylight setting they put out almost too much light for our kitchen.
