          Living out in the country, I regularly spray our home for scorpions, and unwanted bugs. This sprayer is a real step up from the plastic sprayer we had been using. The multi-jet nozzle gets in to the tightest crevices without any dripping. The built in pressure gauge ensures you are operating at the optimal pressure for liquid dispersant. The hose is a little over 4 feet long. An optional carry strap hooks on to either side of the tank.
          This is the type of sprayer the big exterminator professionals use, and there is a reason they do. The quality stainless steel and brass parts ensure you don't overspray, and the product gets exactly where you need it.
          Pros: Durable

          This tool is like a multifunction digital multimeter on steroids. With the addition of being able to test insulation modes like Polarization Index, Dielectric Absorption and Earth Bond Resistance, this all-in-one tool is perfect for the electrical professional.
          Sadly, the meters menu is somewhat cumbersome to navigate, and takes a bit of getting used to. I had to keep referring to the manual just to perform some basic readings.

          The FLIR CM83 is an industrial-grade, true RMS, Power Clamp Meter with VFD Mode. It allows you to quickly measure both voltage and current. The bright LED backlight makes the display easy to see even in the most difficult of work environments. Whilst aimed at the professional electrical troubleshooter, it is easy enough for anyone to use. It packs all the expected features like Data Hold, Relative, Peak Hold, and DCA Zero functions, Phase Rotation and an Analog Bar Graph. A nice large and easy to read display, with good contrast for viewing from different angles.
          The clamp jaws open wide enough to accommodate any conductor. The built-in LED work light doubles as a flashlight when working in

          The clamp jaws open wide enough to accommodate any conductor. The built-in LED work light doubles as a flashlight when working in dark areas.
          Whilst the meter has Bluetooth support, this is only for sending readings to a supported IR camera. It would have been nice to have this reading sent to a smartphone app so you could get a remote readout from the meter.
          Conventional probes are included, as are the required 6 AA batteries.
          A nice addition to the electricians toolbox.

          The Powermate Front Tine Tiller is the perfect tool to get your garden ready for growing season. This hardworking machine incorporates a powerful, efficient OHV 4-stroke engine that powers through the toughest soil conditions. The gear-drive system provides maximum fuel and engine efficiency, allowing the unit to run on less power input than when operated manually and the gasoline-powered engine allows the user to till a large area in little time. The tilling width can be adjusted set at 11 in., 16 in. or 21 in. for maximum versatility. The 11 in. front-rotating tines reach up to 8 in. deep into the ground to turn up fresh soil. 8 in. wheels help stabilize the tiller when operating on rough terrain. This tiller is equipped with front-rotating tines to help to move the tiller forward and a swing tail with drag stake allows for an easy change from till to transport mode. This machine makes easy, comfortable work of any garden task.

          The tiller arrives requiring some basic assembly. It took about 20 minutes to get it all put together, oil in the engine, and a tank of gas ready to go.
          The tiller is very easy to move around, and does not require you disengage a clutch or the drive train. You simply tilt the tiller back and pull it up on to the rear wheels, which pivot underneath the body. When you reach the area to be tilled you reverse the process.
          Anybody that has used a self propelled hand mower will be familiar with the bar on the handle used to move the tiller forward. The engine cranked on the 2nd pull.

          The sleek stylish design of this Riosa 2-Piece Elongated Toilet in White provides innovations, maximum performance and water-savings. Beautifully designed for easy installation, maximum flush and water savings, Delta toilets are the smart choice. All Delta toilets feature the exclusive Smart Fit tank-to-bowl connection. This technology eliminates potential leak points and the fear of over-tightening bolts. All while adding stability to the tank and making for an easier installation process. The Riosa features a factory-installed supply line that resided in a channel on the back of the tank above the water line, eliminating another potential leak point. The concealed trap way gives it a smoother, cleaner look. The elongated bowl and chair height allow for greater comfort. The quick-release seat allows for easy cleaning. This stylish design provides maximum performance and water-savings. Another smart innovation is the inclusion of a toilet removal kit. The kit includes items needed to aid in the removal of your existing toilet: a pair of disposal gloves, disposable scraper, highly absorbent sponge, and cloth. No additional tools are required to assemble and install this complete toilet.

But I found the size & shape of the pipe connecting to toilet tank does match the diamension of the T-valve that comes with bidet which matchs most normal toilet. It takes me several hours to search online to find out an alternative T-valve but can not. What do you suggest to solve this headache? Thanks.
