          There are lots of nice features on this nozzle. Zinc free making it pet friendly, thumb wheel to turn it on and off as well as adjusting the water pressure, nine different spray options, more on this later, rubber like handle, sturdy construction, nice balance. All the other specs can be found on the product page.
          Trying to explain the symbols on the nozzle may not do it justice.

          Create a clean, clutter-free look in your kitchen sink area. This brush caddy holds dishwashing brushes, sponges, and other cleaning tools in easy reach. It includes a removable slotted tray, so water drains through to the container below instead of onto your countertop. The sleek stainless-steel design complements any kitchen decor.

          In looking for something different other than an augratin dish to hold our brush, this fit our needs perfectly. It's sturdy, the upper part is white and made of resin like material and the lower part, the drain, is stainless steel with rubber like composite lined on the bottom to keep it from sliding around.
          Well made, nice design and very practical.
          Pros: Portable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          The classy and functional Hourglass No/No Feeder has a beautiful bronze finish adored by both birds and people. This large capacity feeder is a wonderful addition to your yard. Enjoy hours and hours watching birds dine at this large capacity feeder. Without the use of plastic or wood components, the all-over metal mesh construction of the Bronze Hourglass No/No Feeder stands up against squirrels and other small animals that may try to access birdseed. The mesh also makes the perfect landing place for clinging birds, while perching birds appreciate the two available perches. The Hourglass No/No Feeder holds 6 lbs. of black oil sunflower seed. The ability to accommodate up to 20 birds at once makes the Hourglass No/No Feeder a must-have feeder for backyard birding.

          We were wrestling with a tube feeder that holds approximately one cup of seed and having to fill it two to three times a day. When this was delivered in the middle of February during a light snow storm I just had to go out, fill it up and hang it with roughly 5 lbs. of sunflower seed. If the birds were apprehensive about the new feeder it didn't show, see pictures the second picture was taken about 24 hours later. Birds that went to the feeder are Chickadees, Finches, Waxwings, Sparrows, and Woodpeckers. Ground feeders that are attracted to the spillage from the feeder are the Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mourning Doves, and Juncos.

          It's made of all metal, so it will last for years. Squirrel proof and can accommodate at least a dozen or more small birds at once. It has two perches that go around the circumference and plenty of grates for birds to cling onto. It has two metal clasps that keep the cover secured. Filling is a little awkward, wish that the cover could slide to the left or right rather than tilting it up because it's still somewhat in the way when trying to pour seed into the feeder. Other than that it's a must have for the serious birder. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight
          Cons: filling could be easier

          New from Lysol, odor resistant cellulose scrubber sponges. Antimicrobial treatment of the sponge and scrubber prevents the growth of odor causing bacteria on the sponge. These soft, absorbent sponges are great for scrubbing those baked on messes. The unique scrubber material works hard to tackle tough messes but rinses clean. These sponges may scratch (test first on an inconspicuous area).

          On opening the cellophane you will notice that the scrubber side of the pad is very different that you used in the past, with its ridges and its coarseness. You should take notice because of its abrasiveness, it could scratch certain items, so always check an obscure area first.
          Have been using the pad for five weeks and the scrubber is still intact showing minimal wear and the cellulose side is showing about same effects. Besides that, it doesn't smell! This pads longevity exceeds those of other pads on the market making it a better value.

          The light is easy to install, very light and it's nice looking. There are technical differences between the one Home Depot is selling on their web page and the one that I received from Home Depot. The web page mentions 12 watts and a three year limited warranty, where as the one I received is 14 watts with a five year warranty. They both have the same skew number.

          This durable molded wood seat closes softly, preventing slamming and pinched fingers while also being easy to remove for cleaning. With the STA-TITE Seat Fastening System, the seat does not shift around and stays firmly attached to the toilet. The stylish flip-cap design accents any bathroom decor.

          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.
