          Spectracide Weed and Grass Killer with Extended Control is pre-mixed and ready to use and is formulated for spot treatment of weeds and grasses. Use it on driveways and walkways or around fences, trees, flower beds, shrubs and other areas in your yard (except in lawns). This product is a non-selective herbicide that will kill any vegetation contacted and will prevent re-growth for up to 3 months. It enters plants through the leaves and moves down to the roots. This will ensure that the entire plant is eliminated. It also provides a protective barrier that prevents weeds and grasses from emerging for up to 3 months. 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.

          32 oz. Weed and Grass Killer Concentrate with Extended Control is the best weed and grass killer I've used and easiest to apply - just mix with water, spray on desired areas, and within a week (when I took before and after photos) the weeds, the pesty long grasses, and everything are 100% dead. The real trick will be after seasons long if the wed killer keeps up and no new weeds take root...
          Pros: Great Quality

          The Simple Green 128 oz. Lemon Scent All-Purpose Cleaner is the easiest and most efficient cleaner to use all over your home in every room. The dilution instructions are very simple - heavy duty cleaning = less water and light cleaning = more water mixed in with cleaner. Has a very fresh scent - no hint of bleach smell, and no hard scrubbing required even for the hardest jobs.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, High Quality

          Rejuvenate 24 oz Carpet & Upholstery Spot & Stain Remover is an Excellent spot and stain remover! Not only does it smell great, but use as directed and it will practically lift any stain. It can even remove stains/muddy looking brown spots on carpet in large areas too - not just small individual stains. Not too hard to use, just spray and scrub with sponge, left sit for 15 - then I swept the carpet (not included in directions) and it looks great!
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Easy to Use

          Cleaning showers and baths is hard enough and when you add granite cleaning and other natural-stone care to the task, it shouldn’t make it more difficult. Ordinary, everyday shower and bath cleaners can damage natural stone and lead to costly repair and replacement. Our streak-free formula safely deep-cleans granite, marble, travertine and all other natural-stone and ceramic shower walls and tub surrounds without damaging natural-stone surfaces. Regular use of this granite cleaner for showers and baths will help prevent mold, mildew, soap scum and hard-water deposits.

          the 24 oz. Shower Cleaner is a good shower cleaner for mild buildup. With the build up in our shower, though, it required intense scrubbing to remove the build up on our stone. It does work, but I would rather not have to scrub as hard as I did to remove the build up - with this amount of work needed, it would take a rather long time to clean the whole shower
          Pros: Good Size & Weight
          Cons: Difficult to Use

          150 oz. Original Scent Liquid Laundry Detergent is a great and easy to use laundry detergent. It is has fresh, clean scent perfect for all types of laundry loads and works just as well on whites as it does on colors. It does not need/use a large amount of detergent per normal load, so the 150oz size will last a long time for all different load sizes

          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 inch to 13-1/2 inch.
           

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

          Answer: 
          It might just be your toilet/tank system - ours was recently installed and makes the same amount of noise as before (maybe the title makes it a little misleading)

          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.
