          Post-dinner party cleanup. Let your LG dishwasher do the heavy lifting. LG QuadWash provides maximum cleaning coverage making it easier than ever to get your dishes clean and with TrueSteam technology you get up to 60% less water spots. The 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to oversized cooking utensils.

Below I will discuss the installation of the dishwasher which HD contracts for and then the dishwasher itself.
          Installation Process - I reviewed the checklist and video of what Home Depot said needed to be ready to complete the installation and everything was ready for the team when they arrived with the new dishwasher. Upon looking under the sink they said that the present dishwasher piping was not up to code for them to complete the installation of the new dishwasher. The documentation said I needed a shutoff valve which had been installed by our homes builder on the pvc pipe that connected to the old dishwasher. The team said they couldn't install the new dishwasher with the existing plumbing. I made a decision for them to go ahead and install the dishwasher with everything but the water connection and I would contact a plumber to complete the water connection. They said I could do that as long as I cut the existing PVC pipe so they could take the old dishwasher out which I did. The team then took the old dishwasher out and installed this new dishwasher. They were able to do that in about an hour. While they were there I called a local plumber and set up the appointment for the next day. While on the phone the install team told me to tell them that what was need was a 3/8th compression fitting to connect the existing water line to the flexible shielded water line on the new dishwasher. This surprised me because I thought they were saying more was needed and I don't understand why the install team would not have something as simple as that. Anyway the next day the plumber made the final connection in less than 20 minutes at a cost of $75 and this dishwasher was up and running.
          Dishwasher - It does an incredible job of cleaning the dishes and making the glasses spot free with its Quad-wash and Steam system. We love having the third rack above where you can place large flatware items like spatulas. This dishwasher has several technological advances that move it ahead of many manufacturers, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced 3-stage filtration system. It is also one on the quietest at 44dB I have every hear. As a matter of fact you hardly ever hear it except for when it is draining the water into the sink. You can also use the LG SmartThinQ app on your smartphone to check on the status of the dishwasher. The LG Dual Zone technology varies the water intensity in the upper and lower racks which allows delicate dishes like china to be washed in the upper rack on a softer setting while pots and pans in the lower rack are washed with stronger intensity.
          The Auto Cycle automatically senses the level of dirt on your dishes and sets the wash cycle, so your dishes get optimal cleaning every time. This dishwasher allows you to fit up to 15 place-settings of dishes. The controls are located at the top lip of the door so you can select the setting you want before closing the door. However when you do that you can't see the time indication on top of the dishwasher if you are wondering when it will be done, but on the front of the dishwasher there is a green light that comes on when the cycles are complete. LG says this is among the most energy-efficient dishwashers in its class and they confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty. I couldn't be more pleased with this new dishwasher and look for many years of great service from it. Attached are several pictures below.

          This wicker looking outdoor patio ottoman is just perfect for lounging outside on the patio. It matches our wicker patio set perfectly as you can see in the pictures. No assembly is required. The height is just right and it is very comfortable with the thick removable cushion on top. The color of the cushion is described as parchment or beige. It has adjustments underneath so you can turn them to be level on a patio which often is not level. If inclement weather is forecast its best to bring the cushion inside so it doesn't get wet and become a sponge. the Dimensions are 28 in. W x 21 in. D x 13 in. H

          This is really a great smart power strip that has 6 outlets you can control independently and 3 USB ports to charge smart phones and other devices that have a USB cord. The first step was to load the Kasa app from either the apple or Google play store. Then you connect the power strip to your home wifi with its password. Once that is done you can turn each of the plugs on and off from my phones app. I also set up a schedule for a lamp to come on in the evenings and night time. It has a built in surge protector.
          You can also monitor the power usage of the things you have plugged into the outlet.

          We assembled the fire pit and are overall pleased with the product. However, there are places, mostly on the sides of the blocks, that the cement is visible as there is no paint. We are interested in getting paint in order to touch up these spots of missing paint. Is there matching paint for this pit that we can get? Thank you!
