          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This product broke on its first use. Since it is made with cheap plastic parts, I could not get the showerhead pressure settings tab to move at all. I finally got it to move, but then water started pouring out of cracks around the spray nozzles. I broke it trying to use it normally. About half of the water never made it to nozzles. It was leaking all over the place. (See my pictures to see where it was leaking from.)
          Also, this showerhead requires way too many installation steps. There is definitely too much assembly required. Way too many small parts. This seems unnecessary when competitors provide products that you just screw into the shower arm within a minute with no assembly Read More

          Cons: Difficult to Install, Not Durable, cheap plastic parts, broke on first use, water leaks everywhere

          Designed to fit a standard shower arm, the HydroRain 2-in-1 Shower Head with Hand Shower installs in minutes. Once installed, it provides you with a luxurious shower experience and complete control over your water with a pivoting rain can and the option to use the rain can on its own, the hand shower on its own, or both together. While other products may gather unsightly mineral build-up over time, Delta soft rubber Touch-Clean spray holes allow any mineral residue to simply be wiped away for an instantly refreshed look with no need for soaking or the aid of chemical cleaners. The pause setting gives you ample space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks, without worrying about overspray or water waste. This spray setting helps you conserve water, so you can worry less about depleting your supply of hot water - and you help the environment too. Delta Water Sense labeled faucets, showers and toilets use at least 20% less water than the industry standard saving you money without compromising performance. Color: Chrome.

          I was debating on whether to take off a star or not due to the fact that I think the water pressure of the shower head is too low. I would recommend this only to those who enjoy a lighter pressure rain shower type of shower head. Those in my household (who prefer this rainshower type) have no problem with the showerhead. I'm not a huge fan so I am going by their opinion.
          When you have both the showerhead and the hand sprayer going at the same time, the water pressure is even lower. When you have only one or the other going, the pressure is better. Even the messaging spray setting doesn't have enough pressure for my liking. If it were only me using this, I would take out the pressure Read More

Even the messaging spray setting doesn't have enough pressure for my liking. If it were only me using this, I would take out the pressure regulator somehow.
          The showerhead only has the rain shower setting - you can't change it -- however you can change the pressure setting of the hand sprayer. One of the settings of the hand sprayer is just an anemic drip of water so I don't really count that as a setting.
          The tall members of my family enjoy the fact that the shower head sticks up above the normal shower arm coming out of the wall. They enjoy the extra inches of height that this showerhead provides.
          I also have problems with the magnatite docking for the hand sprayer. It seems like I can never get the magnet to catch. Even when I think that I have it seated properly, I've had it fall and bang onto the shower floor.
          The best part of the fixture and why it deserves 5 stars is that it is extremely well made. I do believe that it will last a very long time. Installation literally took a minute. It also looks really good. Read Less

          Statement lighting doesn't always mean being the center of attention. Minimalist modern flush mount lighting unobtrusively hugs the ceiling but can be just as striking as center-stage chandeliers and pendants. There are many different versions of spectacular ceiling lights but none stand out as much as the Edinburg LED Integrated Flush Mount Ceiling Light. With a true Smithfield design - a grand yet shallow rounded body - this flush mount produces a halo of filtered light that is perfect for any room in your home. The matte gray finish adds a modern flair to your room yet the frosted shade softens the entire look. An integrated LED means you'll never have to change a bulb again and it's dimmable so you'll always have the right amount of light for any situation. Just install and enjoy.

          The light is fine, but is average at best. Here are the reasons that I do not like it:
          1. The color of the fixture is a darker grey. I looks more like a grey/beige/brown color. The pictures online looked to be a light gray or silvery color. It is not metallic at all, but a matte plastic. For this reason, it ended up not matching any of my other fixtures even though I thought it would.
          2. Light spills out of the fixture at the ceiling above the plastic/glass shade. The part of the light with the integrated LED fits very tight against the ceiling. However, there is no way to afix the plastic cover tightly up against the ceiling. For this reason, the light spills out.

          3. The light is supposed to be "warm" for its color temperature, but I feel it is much more neutral somewhere between cool and warm so be aware of that.
          Overall though, the light works as intended. There is enough light for a medium sized room. Read Less

          This review is for the 2 pack which contains 2 gallons of topcoat.
          I was actually pleased with the performance of this topcoat. This floor painting system is a bit more expensive than other floor paint alternatives, but it comes with the topcoat that other floor paint doesn't. The topcoat definitely makes it easier to mop and keep it clean. However, still don't expect to be dragging heavy things across a painted floor.
          COVERAGE: Since this topcoat goes over your paint, the product estimate of 400 sq ft per gallon is fairly accurate. I applied the paint and the topcoat to an unfinished basement concrete floor. The total concrete area was 700 sq ft. I used under 2 gallons of topcoat for Read More

I applied the paint and the topcoat to an unfinished basement concrete floor. The total concrete area was 700 sq ft. I used under 2 gallons of topcoat for my project. I used 3 gallons of the paint for my project due to the porous surface. I only used one coat for each step.
          The "Matte" product does not change the look of the paint. It is an invisible protective barrier. I did not go with a glossy product because I felt that would accentuate flaws in the concrete.
          You MUST use this topcoat with the paint. The paint by itself will show every footprint if you don't use the topcoat. The paint by itself is impossible to keep clean. With the topcoat, it is very easy to keep clean and did not show footprints. I repeat, you must use the topcoat. Read Less

          Answer: 
          You can use a center sink counter top for this vanity. I used a glacier bay countertop Model # 2237SQ-SLV3. A sink with those dimensions would work just fine. However, be careful which sink you do choose. If the sink is too wide or deep, it may interfere with the drawers. You'll also need to ensure your plumbing from the wall won't interfere with the drawers in that set up as well.

          Answer: 
          No part of the outside gets hot. I touched the grate over the heating element and it was not particularly hot. However little pinkie fingers might fit through the grate holes or some stick object could get poked through the holes. I would say other than that it's pretty safe as far as space heaters go.

          Answer: 
          This is rated for a dry location, but as long as it is 3 feet away from a shower or bathtub, safety codes in most locations will allow for a light fixture rated as "dry" to be installed in the bathroom as long as there is good ventilation. If it is directly above a bathtub, it needs to be 8 feet higher than the tub which usually isn't possible.
