          I used the Rain Guard waterproofing kit to reseal the wood (eastern cedar) enclosure of a hot tub. The sprayer made the job easier than expected and clean up was a breeze. After drying overnight, there was no discoloration of the wood and a spray of water beaded on the surface.
          Pros: Easy to Apply, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Looks Great, Dries Quickly

          The 9in x 3/8in Best Microfiber Roller Cover lives up to the promise of absorbing more paint from the tray and covering a larger area between dips. This becomes an especially welcome benefit when painting textured walls (common in Florida). It washes out well, looking and feeling like new.

          The Kohler Highline Complete Solution toilet is every bit as effective as it is efficient. Don't let 1.28 gallons per flush fool you, it gets the job done better than some older models, that used twice as much water. The installation was a breeze, everything you need comes with the package and goes together perfectly. The Comfort Height is another great feature, especially for taller folks. I am 6"2" and I know that I will never buy a standard height toilet again. Top it off with touchless flush and you've got a total package.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Solid, Lots of Features, Comfortable, High Quality, Reliable

          Original and still the best. The Quickie Oval Bucket with Ringer is just right for almost any cleaning chore. Yes, you can ring a small mop, and have a place to put a sponge or brush while washing a car, and a whole lot of other times, when you need to put down one wet implement and use another.
          Pros: Lots of Features, Sturdy, High Quality, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          The Bosch Carbide Plunge Blade is among the best I have ever used. If cuts clean and quick - perfect for undercutting door jambs on flooring projects, square pockets, etc. It adds a whole new dimension to oscillating power tools.

          Where can you find the beam angle of this particular model (or any of the PAR38 Philips LED bulbs)? I'm interested in purchasing the 36deg beam angle PAR38 LED from Philips. Does this bulb have a 36deg beam?

          September 28, 2013
          Answer: 
          After all connections are made I turn on and shut off the tank valve. This pressurizes the gas lines leading to the burner valves and shows the propane level on the gage. If the level goes down, with the tank and burner valves shut off - there is a leak. Check again in about 10 minutes. If the level on the gage remains unchanged, I conclude that there is no leak.
          Good luck.
