          Product: American Standard Spectra Versa 4-Spray Round 24 in. Wall Bar Shower Kit with Hand Shower 2.5 GPM in Brushed Nickel/Country of Origin: China/////
          This wall bar shower kit is absolutely fantastic in theory...the buck stops there unfortunately. First; the name "American Standard" in no way conjures up thoughts of China in my mind. The quality of this wall bar is rather sketchy. The escutcheons are plastic and - when set for both the shower head and the hand wand - the water flow is approximately halved. My biggest complaint is the installation. Once again...great concept, but lousy execution. I cannot get the section that connects directly to the water supply to operate without Read More

          This wall bar shower kit is absolutely fantastic in theory...the buck stops there unfortunately. First; the name "American Standard" in no way conjures up thoughts of China in my mind. The quality of this wall bar is rather sketchy. The escutcheons are plastic and - when set for both the shower head and the hand wand - the water flow is approximately halved. My biggest complaint is the installation. Once again...great concept, but lousy execution. I cannot get the section that connects directly to the water supply to operate without leaking. I've had the bar on and off the wall three times now to no avail. The instructions are very basic and there's no "Troubleshooting" section. My thought is that the unit isn't seating properly as it doesn't want to push onto the adapter all the way. Next is a piece of wood and a hammer and - if that doesn't work - this puppy's coming down permanently. I would steer clear of this product...especially at this price point. Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great
          Cons: Difficult to Install, fitment issues, mediocre quality, weak pressure when both heads are used

          This standard HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of LG filter model LT500P, 5231JA2002A. Certified against NSF/ANSI 42 for the reduction of Chlorine taste and odor to ensure high quality and performance. This high quality economical filter will deliver fresh, crisp, clean tasting water and ice cubes that you can trust for your family. Engineered with the power of 0.5 Micron coconut shell carbon block, this filter provides tremendous capacity to reduce impurities, sediment and rust that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge and can hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are receiving the cleanest and best tasting water possible for you and your family. Easy DIY installation filter with a life capacity of 300 Gal. or 6 months, whichever precedes. Using this filter will replace 1500 water bottles reducing the amount of plastic waste in our landfills.  This filter fits the following LG Filter models: LT500P, 5231JA2002A.

          This refrigerator filter seems to work as good as the OEM variety. I have to say, my community is blessed with a good quality municipal water supply to begin with, but the filter makes a difference in spite of that. It removes any chlorine taste that may have made it through the RO process at the county. I'm not certain whether it filters fluoride...a product that I'm not particularly happy to have added to my water supply. I can say that it produces virtually taste-free water which is my preference.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Easy to Use, filters well

          There's not a whole lot to say about this copper strap other than it appears to be well made and the copper seems to be of regular quality. I needed to strap an outdoor spigot to a building and this little baby did me right. Being copper, it should hold up to the elements for some time and it's strong. I no longer have to concern myself about whether I'm going to break the PVC pipe that comes up from the ground when pulling on the hose. It's a keeper.

          Add a touch of sophistication to any room, with this brushed nickel flush mount. The frame is low profile, and ideal for any ceiling height. The integrated LED means no bulbs need to be replaced, ever. The white glass shade gives soft yet ample light.

          PRODUCT: HOME DECORATORS COLLECTION 12 IN. BRUSHED NICKEL LED FLUSH MOUNT CEILING LIGHT WITH WHITE GLASS SHADE/COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: CHINA/////
          This ceiling fixture is quite attractive and makes a nice appearance when installed. The installation was easy and the quality of the fixture is average for an import. One thing that did stand out was the preset screw depth on the mounting plate. It went a long way toward the ease of installation. I do have one issue with this fixture and that's the relatively dim illumination. At 15 watts, it's only equivalent to an incandescent bulb slightly larger than 100 watts. Overall; I'm reasonably pleased with it, but I could have used more light. If you Read More

          This fixture is bright, easy to install and can be mounted in almost any location supplied by a 120V feed. While it's not hideous by any means, it's not especially attractive and is really meant for a closet, above a workbench, in a cabinet, etc. This decor' restriction could be frustrating given the item's price-point.

I installed mine on the inside of my pantry, above the doorway and the improvement is significant. Since I chose this location to mount the fixture, the lower shelves are a bit deprived of the light's benefits, but that was only to be expected as the configuration of my pantry precludes such and the main kitchen light illuminates those shelves. The top shelves were the problem...hence my choice of mounting location. I have recommended this product solely on the "pros" that I've mentioned. While this item can be a real asset in the proper place, my advice would be to make sure that you've carefully considered the item, its cost and the intended placement prior to making your purchase.

          Hi,
          Two questions:
          1. Can I use a LED A19 bulb?
          2. What type of bulb holder does it come with? I'm planning to use 60W bulb of medium base (E26). Is that okay?

          Answer: 
          I use an A19 style, E26 base, 100 watt equivalent LED bulb. The unit is rated at 60 watts which is far more than any LED with an E26 base.
