It is really easy to move around since it is so light and compact. 10 to 15 minutes is about the length of charge I got when using the vacuum. It’s great for cleaning up your vehicle without hauling out the big shop vacuum and extension cord. The vacuum can hold a lot of debris before it is necessary to empty it. The suction is sufficient enough to clean up most dirt and dust. The crevice attachment has a fold out brush which is nice and the hair attachment works really well in picking up pet hair. .

          The hobby knife set consists of four different types of blades totaling sixteen blades and two handles, one medium duty and one heavy duty. The set is contained within a convenient plastic case.

          The timer comes with a right angle plug as shown in one of the attached pictures. It is designed to hang vertically with the receptacle facing downward only. It is really easy to use; rotate the dial to one of seven desired settings – OFF/ ON / 2HR /4HR /6HR /8 HR & dusk to dawn. Using the dusk to dawn setting came ON about the right time and turned itself off in the morning. The timer comes with one grounded outlet.There are two installation holes on the back of the timer including a fixed hole in the center and a hanging hole at the base of the power cord to ensure stable placement. I plan on using the timer to turn on and off my Christmas lighting and accessories.

          This standard HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of LG filter model LT700P. 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: LT700P, ADQ36006101, ADQ36006101-S, ADQ36006101S, ADQ36006102, ADQ36006102-S, ADQ36006102S, 048231783705, ADQ36006101, Kenmore filters - 9690, 46-9690, LT700P.

          The filter came as was described and I installed it right away. There was no water leakage after I installed it. I followed the instructions on how much water to run through the replacement filter before it was ready for ice and water consumption. The filter claims to be able to filter up to 300 gallons or 6 months before the next change which is about the same as the LG filter. I couldn't really decipher any taste difference between the replacement and the original LG filter. I found that the price of the HDX filter is less expensive than a LG filter.

          I looked thought out the Owner's Manual but could not find anything on the energy guide of this appliance. If it was on the door when delivered it we would have removed it. I can only suggest you contact GE customer relations. GEAppliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm
           
          Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe any drywall tape will be good on a sagging ceiling. This tape is excellent for ceilings where cracks keep on reappearing. I suggest that you use additional sheet rock screws to secure the wall board to the ceiling joists. Once the ceiling is secure I would use this crack tape.
