          Heavy and solid and seems to work great. I have no doubt that this pump will last a long time. The float plastic is oddly colored, off-white with streaks, but I don't see how that could be a problem.

          This HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of GE MWF contains a compressed carbon block which provides tremendous capacity to remove and/or reduce impurities and sediment 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 absorb and hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities very similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are getting the cleanest and best tasting water possible. This economical filter will provide you with fresh and clean tasting water and ice cubes.

          We have very hard water and this filter really works wonders on it. Fits just like the GE original. Highly recommended.

          This distance "estimator" is exactly as promised. It gets measurements close to exact, but can vary a little over distances longer than 10 feet. You have to be careful not to aim it near any glass as it seems to throw it off more then, say, sheetrock or wood. I think a small sighting device would increase it's accuracy because even keeping it level doesn't ensure you are hitting the exact spot you want.
          The square foot and cubic square foot features are great though, especially when calculating for carpet or floor sizes and doing heating and air conditioning estimates. Then being off a little doesn't really matter.
          BTW, it's quick and easy to use and seems rugged.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Light Weight

          Works great and makes watering much easier since I now don't forget to turn the hose off and end up watering one area for hours. It's easy to set up and use and seems very accurate. Just have to remember to disconnect it and take it indoors during cold winter months (I'm in NY). Otherwise it will crack from freezing water inside.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality

          Excellent brackets; seem strong and very nicely machined. They take stain well and could also be easily painted. I used 2 to hold up the overhang of a new granite countertop. We then sat on the edge carefully and the brackets held the weight no problem. I did use long heavy screws, but the ones supplied would probably work. I'm just a nut about over building everything...

          I have installed this and water will no longer come out through the water and ice dispenser on the front of the door. I have held the water spigot open for an extended period of time thinking the filter had to fill up first but that didn't seem to to work either. I also reinstalled it and still the problem exists. What could be the problem?

          Answer: 
          Try taking it out and seeing if there is some kind of plastic cap that is blocking the inlet. Also try blowing in the center hole, you should feel air coming out of the wider hole. Lastly, re-install your old filter and see if it still works; if it doesn't then something got up into the filter hole. Try and get it out. If that doesn't work, call the manufacturer. They will get to the bottom of this.

          Answer: 
          Sure, as long as the ceiling is smooth, flat and free from grease, dirt, etc. A clean surface is absolutely required, and the tile must be pressed hard and left overnight before grouting.

          Stop the slam with this soft close adapter that quietly and smoothly closes cabinet doors. It can be adjusted by the turn of a screw to the desired closing speed and is the perfect retrofit solution. This damper is easy to mount in the upper corner of your cabinet.
           

          Would these soft close door dampers work on a door going from the kitchen to the garage?

          Answer: 
          I'm not sure; they only engage about a half inch out, so it would depend on how heavy the lid is. It's worth a try, I guess.
