          The Eco-Tech 48 in. Standard Bamboo Level features sturdy bamboo construction that was not sourced from old-growth forests or rain forests. The frame is laminated for durability, and this level includes 6 vials for accurate readings. For added convenience, shock-absorbing rubber end caps help protect the frame.

          The first thing I noticed about this level is how nice it looks!! It's a little heavy, but it feels very high quality, and the bubble vials are slightly curved to make them easier to view from any angle. I am VERY pleased with it, and plan to purchase the smaller version in the near future
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, nice looking

          With soft curves and a fresh yet familiar aesthetic, the Willamette faucet complements a variety of bathroom decors. It comes with a lifetime limited warranty. This product has a vibrant brushed nickel finish.

          This faucet is nice, but not for a quick change out. You have to change the entire water valve assembly, and unless your current valve is made by Kohler you cant even use this without changing the valve, which in my case involved removing sheetrock and making an access panel from the room on the other side of the wall. The overall look of this shower head and faucet are very nice, and I would recommend this for someone that is redoing a bathroom, but not just wanting a different look of the faucet - unless you have an access panel.
          Pros: Looks Great, Stylish, Modern
          Cons: Difficult to Install

          This Temp2O 6-Spray LED Digital Temperature Display Showerhead in Chrome is a simple and easy way to update the look and functionality of your bath. Take the guesswork out before getting in. The water-powered Temp2O LED digital temperature display shows the temperature of the water in your shower. Three color indicators signal different temperature ranges for an easy, visual indication of the water temperature. Blue represents below 80 degrees, magenta is between 80 and 110, red is greater than 110. Enjoy the convenience of jumping in the shower when the temperature is right for you and the peace of mind that the water temperature is a safe temperature for children and pets.

          The temperature display is cool, and gives a good, clear readout . I have kids and its a good thing for them so they can tell what temperature the water is before just getting in. That being said, most of the spray patterns are in the shape of a "U" because of the temp display, and leaves a big hole in the pattern. Changing the patterns is very easy, but you have to go through all of them to get back to any certain one. The pressure is fairly good, but not the best I have seen.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Modern
          Cons: "u" shaped pattern

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This light is fairly large and bulky for the light it puts out. it runs on 3 C batteries, so it can be mounted anywhere. The holes for the mounting screws aren't predrilled, but the mount is just the plastic battery cover so the screws just went through it where I wanted them. It works pretty well as far as motion detection goes, but it just isn't very bright
          Pros: Easy to Use
          Cons: bulky

          The larger of the 2 is very heavy and wouldn't be a pocket carry tool. The small one has such a small handle it wouldn't be very good for anything more than very light use.
          Pros: All In One
          Cons: Too Heavy

          The 8.5-Watt (60W) Soft White LED A19 Light Bulb (6-Pack) is a perfect energy saving replacement to the traditional incandescent light bulb. In fact, these bulbs provide just as much light as a 60 Watt incandescent bulb while only using 10 Watts of electricity. The estimated cost of operation is only $1.18 a year.
           

          Does this have any writing at the top of the bulb and is the light directional?

          Answer: 
          Yes, the company's logo with the letters TCP - about 1/2" long and 1/4" tall as for being directional, not really any more than an average light bulb

          Answer: 
          Yes, there is a small logo that says TCP with the company logo next to it. I would say it's about 1/2 in long and about 1/4 in tall

          Is this a safety issue, or an issue of oil not getting to the engine if the engine is tilted farther than that?
          May 14, 2014
          Answer: 
          It's just a safety recommendation from them. The manual states anything over 15 degrees incline could be a tip over hazzard
