          The Hardwood Floor Wet Cleaning Pads (10-Pack) are great hardwood wipes - each individual wipe gets the dirt off like resulting in your hardwood floor looking like new- and each wipe itself is extra long! You can use them either on a swiffer-like deice, or just hold in your hand to rub a grimey spot on the hardwood floor to get the mess cleaned up.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, High Quality

          The 10-CUP FILTERED WATER PITCHER IN RED is a very easy and reliable water filter pitched to keep in your kitchen/refrigerator. The instructions were very easy to follow and I love the sensor on top of the red lid telling me when it is time to replace the filter (not sure if and when the battery runs out how to replace it though...). The water tastes great and the pitcher is perfect size
          Pros: Looks Great, Convenient, Nice Design, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight

          Spectracide 26 oz. Ready-to-Use Weed and Grass Killer
          Spectracide 26 oz. Ready-to-Use Weed and Grass Killer
          The Spectracide 26 fl. oz. Ready-to-Use Weed and Grass Killer is the quick and easy way to get rid of unwanted grass and weeds around your home landscape. Its fast-acting formula begins working immediately to kill all types of weeds down to the root. It can be used on driveways, around gardens and along foundations. It comes in an easy to use pump sprayer that has up to five minutes of continuous spray. This product is a non-selective herbicide that will kill any vegetation contacted. It enters plants through the leaves and moves down to the roots. This will ensure that the entire plant is eliminated. Avoid direct spray or drift onto desirable plants, lawn grasses, shrubs, and trees. Protect desirable plants and vegetation with a piece of plastic or cardboard. If desirable plants are accidentally sprayed, wash plants with water immediately. This product has no soil activity and thus will not affect nearby untreated plants.

          The 32 OZ. DRAIN TREATMENT AND CLEANER is the simplest way to unclog your drains quickly. I used it in our shower drain, but can be used in other household drains as well. Just follow the water to treatment ratio instructions, pour down the drain, and wait for instructed time. I poured in drain at night then let it work overnight before using the shower the next day.
          Pros: Good Instructions, Reliable

          My husband loves the LARGE DEMOLITION GLOVES. The size and fit is accurate for picking your correct size - and they feel great on. No restriction of hand movement and they are also breathable so you're not getting sweaty, slippery hands inside the gloves. They are perfect for any job - in and around your home and even on the job site. Perfect and easy to pack as well
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality

          I recommend sweeping before using - in case you have pets so you can get all the hair cleaned up, but the pads themselves are wet/moist to begin with, so you do not have to wet clean before

          Designed to fix no/slow refilling, running, and noisy toilets, the Korky QuietFill Toilet Fill Valve is more than two times quieter than other fill valves. It has a universal design to fit all brands and features a wide range of adjustability to fit most 2-piece and 1-piece toilets. The QuietFill Fill Valve is very easy to install and adjust; no tools are required. Simply remove your old fill valve or ballcock, insert your new Korky fill valve, and adjust. The innovative twist-lock adjustment makes installation easy. Designed to fit more toilets, the QuietFill toilet fill valve adjusts from 7-3/4 in. to 13-1/2 in.
           

          I recently installed this fill valve, and it works properly but is very noisy.

          Water Quality/ taste

          I have installed " Glacier Bay ULTIMATE DRINKING WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM" last week, but I am not able to see any improvement in water taste. Maybe its filtering something from water but to me its taste like direct tap water. I have used Pur, "Zerowater", Brita filters earlier and they did very good job. I can see another filter "Glacier Bay Premium Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filtration System" is advertised to produce bottle water taste water and having 3 filter instead of 2. So shall I replace mine with "Premium Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filtration System" or should try to replace only water filter ? What is expected from both of these filter and which one should produce water bottle taste water.

          I love depot products and their reliability, So want to keep using water filter also. please suggest.

          Answer: 
          The taste itself isn't so much completely obvious - more noticeable after taking a drink and swallowing. I notice it quenches my thirst better than the regular tap filled with basically chlorinated water I was drinking before the filtration system was added.
