Touchless faucets have been common in public restrooms for years, but now more hands-free faucets are available for the consumer market as well. Homeowners are adding faucets to the bathroom that rely exclusively on sensors and have no levers or buttons. The user simply waves their hand over the sensor that operates it. As voice-activated kitchen faucets are popping up, this same technology will likely be available in the bathroom soon, too. The shower system that gives you what you want. Smart shower systems are intended to make the task of getting ready for the day or winding down in the evening easy and relaxing. Using a smartphone app, voice- control technology or the system's wall controller, homeowners can turn on, stop or pause the shower, and select the temperature. To create a custom schedule, users can set the amount of time the shower will last and set an alert to know when the shower is on and at the desired temperature.

In my opinion, it is the best primer on the market for exterior applications." ~ Bob Halla, Cowls Building Supply Founded by a painting contractor frustrated with complaints and callbacks caused by coating failure on repaint jobs, we set out to make a primer that solved most paint problems. With 55% solids, 300% elongation and 300 PSI adhesion, we engineered an exterior acrylic bonding primer that locks down and encapsulates all peeling, cracking and damaged substrates, remains ptermanently flexible and breathable, and blocks rust and tannin bleed with two coats. Dura-Prime saves time and money by reducing prep and application time, eliminates complaints and callbacks, and provides the most stable surface for unmatched top-coat durability and longevity.
