          This is a very high tech faucet. It can be controlled with a tap, or by motion sensing. In order to be touch or motion activated, you do need to leave the manual portion turned on and set at the desired temperature. If you tap the faucet it runs for about a minute before turning back off. When using motion sensing it turns off if motion is not detected after about 5 seconds. I am not lazy, but I am forgetful, and I’ll admit to often leaving the faucet running when brushing my teeth or having a shave.

          An LED in the base turns from blue to red to display the water temperature. The faucet takes 6 AA batteries, or can be 'hard-wired' with an optional power supply. The batteries are easy to reach in a battery pack that can located under the sink in an easy to reach area.
          Installation was a breeze, everything just push fits together and is held in place with push-on clips.
          This faucet can save you money, if you or your loved ones are prone to leaving the faucet running. Read Less

No more constantly running water, or struggling to control the flow with hands full of flour.

          This is actually 3 vacuums in one. You can use it like a conventional upright, you can detach the pod and use it like a portable cleaner, and you can place the pod on the caddy and use it like a shop vac.
          Assembly was very simple, no tools required, it just snapped together.
          With the pod removed from the cleaning wand, you can fold the wand flat and get in to hard to reach places, like under the bed (the built in LED light is very helpful when doing this).
          The vacuum has 3 settings for smooth floors, low pile carpet, and high pile carpet. You switch between these modes right on the handle - very convenient.
          This is a very quiet machine, much quieter than any other vacuum we own.

          We used this to set a piece of loose molding, and to seal the edge of some new baseboards. We were able to paint it after just a couple of hours.. The sealant is water based, and did not give off a strong odor. Cleanup was super simple with a wet rag.

          This is the second Kraus sink we installed. We have a 60/40 split sink in the main kitchen, and this single bowl sink in our mother-in-law kitchen. As we prepare and can all our garden vegetables in this kitchen, we wanted the biggest sink out kitchen would accommodate.
          The sink arrived with all the hardware needed for installation, including a drain assembly. The sink is supplied with a wire rack that goes in the base of the bowl. This sink is very heavy duty, and has a sound deadening coating and rubber dampers. This is a very large, and deep, sink.

          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.

          I bought a Swash 300 (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Brondell-Swash-300-Advanced-Bidet-Toilet-Seat-Elongated-in-White-S300-EW/203159333#customer_reviews) in Home Depot. 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.
