          We picked up this product to update our guest bathroom as part of a budget friendly update. I can say that this product looks great and was easy to install, with no issues.
          The faucet installation itself is pretty straight forward. it is held in place by two large plastic nuts that secure it to the counter top. This faucet set does not come with supply lines so plan ahead to see if you need replacements or longer ones.
          The one feature I really like about this is the push button drain. Most conventional faucets have a pull on the back of the faucet that will lower a stopper into the sink drain. where as this one is a simple push to close, and a push to release style stopper. This made Read More

          This is a very easy to install faucet and drain. It actually took longer to remove the old faucet than it did to install this. unit.

          We picked this kit because it looked like a good kit to put together a nice sandbox for the kids. Assembly was pretty easy as this just fits together with notches cut into the boards. The only screws are used to hold the seat rails into place. the bottom lining is the same material as weed barrier that goes down in flower beds. We ended up digging a little deeper hole for the sand box so the kids could dig further than couple of inches. we went down about a foot and a half and then lined the hole and filled with sand.
          The reason I gave this only three stars is because the wind is not the friend of this sandbox. the cover is pretty light weight, and the first wind storm we had sent this Read More

          The reason I gave this only three stars is because the wind is not the friend of this sandbox. the cover is pretty light weight, and the first wind storm we had sent this across the yard. luckily it got caught on the fence. We then secured it to the sand box seat rails, and the next good windstorm that we had ended up pulling the cover and the top half of the sand box off because it is not held together with screws. So I will have to go and put some supports into the ground and screw everything together to keep the wind from throwing this across the yard. Read Less

          I've been using this impact driver for various jobs around the house and haven't had any issues with this product. I've used it to install lag bolts, build a swing set, and varios other DYI projects. with the hydraulic feature on this it diminishes the noise that comes from the impact driver, so it is not as loud as others I have owned or used. This also has a light under the driver housing that helps when working in hard to reach places.

          Simplify your life with the power of Smart Watering. No more aimless tinkering with your old sprinkler controller. The Blossom Smart Watering Controller automatically programs itself based on real-time local weather data collected from the Internet to create an optimized watering schedule for your yard. This means that on the sunniest, hottest days, Blossom will apply extra water to replenish dry soil. On cooler, less sunny days, Blossom adjusts to irrigate less. If measurable rain is in the weather forecast, Blossom skips watering for that day. The result is an automatically adjusted irrigation plan tailored for your lawn and garden that can be monitored and controlled from anywhere at any time from your smartphone or tablet. Let's conserve water. Over-watering doesn't just hurt your plants, it hurts your wallet. Start saving up to 30% on your water bill and let Blossom pay for itself. Your sprinklers are about to get smarter.

          Answer: 
          It can do both. If you select smart watering it will set your schedule based off your local weather. Or you can run it in a manual mode and set your own watering schedule.

          Answer: 
          we ended up digging a a little bit deeper hole in the sand box and used about 500lbs of play sand. but if you don't dig a hole you could probably get by with use 6-7 50lb bags of play sand.
