          This unique system makes getting a smooth flat tile floor much easier than ever before. I had never seen this system before, but glad that I discovered it. In most floor tile applications the secret to a really flat floor is having a well prepared subsurface that is truly flat. Well that's almost impossible. But with smaller tiles it's not such a big deal, since the "wavyness" or slight changes in the floor are easily overcome because of the gaps between tiles and the grout which effectively smooths out the finished job. But with today's much larger tile sizes (I just installed 12"x24" tiles) it can be hard to get all of the tile edges to meet at the same level.

          With this system you just tighten up all the corners of the tile and they line up perfectly. One hint: I found you might need to add a little more thin set, especially in low areas so the tile has a good solid base.

          OK, it's not cheap but boy is it great! My wife and I were remodeling our kitchen and she always wanted a second oven because our existing one is a Wolf 36" and it takes a long time to heat up and if you're only cooking something small it seems like a waste of energy, and did I mention it takes a long time to come up to temperature? So this 24" seemed perfect and it is. The LCD readout is real easy to see and the functions are intuitive, simply and work well. We put it under our island but it would work even better at eye level. Everything about this oven seems high quality. Now cooking just a banana bread or some cookies (I shouldn't review when I'm hungry; can only think about dessert...) Read More

          Wow, this cover is great! It's really heavy duty, yet flexible and not too heavy. I'm hoping it will last for years and years, and now winter protection for my patio furniture is so much easier which I really appreciate as I get older.
          Up til now I would bring all my furniture together and pull out a big tarp and wrap everything and then have to weight down the corners or wrap rope around it and most years part of it would come loose from the wind and some of the furniture would be exposed to UV and the weather. This cover has great ties built in! Love it.

          Well what can you say about twist ties..? I like that this is a long roll of ties with a built in cutter that works pretty easily. I grow plants indoors in the fall and winter under led lights and so far these work great to train my tomatoes and peppers and peas. The wire seems strong and has no problem being twisted and re-twisted many times without breaking, and the paper makes the tie easy on your fingers and plants. I use them pretty loosely so they don't cut into the plant as it grows, if you need tighter ties you might want to check out some of the rubbery ones. I'm sure they'll work great next summer outside in the garden.

The Scalewatcher technology treats water in pipes with magnetic and electric field which results in mineral crystallization that will not easily adhere to pipe walls or plumbing fixtures. The treated water remains chemically unchanged therefore will retain the beneficial and healthy minerals like calcium and magnesium.

          I was very sceptical about the claims of this whole house electronic descaler and anti-rust system. I did a lot of research online and it seemed like it might work a little but it wouldn't actually remove hardness or rust particles from the water, only crystallize them so they wouldn't stick and clog pipes, shower and faucet heads.
          Well it does seem to be removing a bit of scale already lodged in my faucets and shower heads, so I have to assume it is descaling as promised. The water doesn't feel slippery like a conventional water softener using salt, and that's one thing I hate (the slippery feeling). It was very easy to install following the enclosed instructions.

          Well it does seem to be removing a bit of scale already lodged in my faucets and shower heads, so I have to assume it is descaling as promised. The water doesn't feel slippery like a conventional water softener using salt, and that's one thing I hate (the slippery feeling). It was very easy to install following the enclosed instructions. I was able to wrap the wires around the PVC pipe that brings my water in from the well pump. This is better than wrapping copper or steel pipe according to the instructions.
          So I'm liking it so far. It's a little expensive, but cheap compared to a traditional water softener. And the results after a month seem promising, but time will tell. I hope to update this review in 6 months.
