JT Animal Control ADC6 Spray Proof Skunk Trap
The JT Animal Control ADC6 Spray Proof Skunk Trap is the safe and humane solution for your problem. The Spray Proof Skunk Trap has a spring loaded door that automatically closes once the skunk enters the tube. The tube is made of heavy duty six inch PVC pipe, and once the skunk is inside, it prevents it from being able to lift their tail to spray – it also eliminates the possibility of scratching and biting. Once the trap door has been shut, you can identify your catch through small holes on the door – the rest of pipe is solid, making your catch invisible to people or other animals passing by. It is the safest trap on the market and can be used by homeowners as well as animal control specialists.

Chilipepper Sales Inc CP6000 Hot Water Demand Pump
The Chilipepper is a little yet powerful hot water pump which mounts under your sink. Once installed hot water is pumped rapidly from your hot water heater to either your sink or shower with just the push of a button. It will work with any and all water heaters from traditional to tankless to even solar heaters. The small but powerful device operates at 1/3 of a horsepower which makes it the most powerful pump for any residential hot water system. The increased power means less wait time for you while you wait for your hot water regardless of how long your pipes are. Installation of the Chilipepper is done without the need of additional plumbing because all connections are done with hoses.

Less than $2.00 a year is all that it will cost you in electricity to operate the Chilipepper making this a green product. When you push the Chilipepper button the pump will extract hot water from the hot water line and will push the cold water back to the cold water line leaving no wasted water.

Installation: 

  • Install a 110 volt outlet under the sink if there isn’t one there
  • Turn of the supply valves under the sink
  • Place the Chilipepper on the floor of the cabinet (it has rubber feet)
  • Using two new hoses and the two original hoses, connect ” T ” fittings between your sink fixtures and the water lines to your supply valves. Use two more new hoses to the T’s to the fittings on the Chilipepper as shown in the figure below.
  • Mount the push button and attach the control cable to the button
  • Turn on the supply valves, momentarily run the faucets to remove any air
  • Plug the Chilipepper power cord into the 110 volt outlet. Done!

Solar Floodlight W/ Heat And Motion Sensor
Don’t worry about cloudy skies, because the Solar Floodlight works for approximately 2 weeks without ANY sunlight (at an average of eight 30-second light intervals each night)! A built-in motion and heat sensor turns the light on for people, but not for swaying tree branches. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor to pick up a full 90° horizontally, at a distance of up to 30 feet. Set the darkness level to keep the light from coming on too early in the evening or too late at night. Choose either a 30- or 60-second duration for the light to remain on after the last motion detected. A 14-foot cable between the solar panel and the light lets you place the security light where you need it, while allowing the solar panel to be installed facing the sun (south for homes in the Northern Hemisphere).

Want to install a motion- and heat-sensing solar floodlight without having to hire an electrician to wire it? Install this solar powered security light anywhere around your home without wiring hassles or expensive battery replacement! This maintenance-free security light uses solar energy to power the long lasting, bright, energy-efficient halogen bulb, so you won’t be left in the dark. Install a Solar Floodlight with Heat & Motion Sensor near each of your entryways and you can be sure that your family can enter and exit your home safely, even when there’s a power outage. The Solar Floodlight is powered by a rechargeable lead acid battery, which is included. Read more

Never Accidentally Leave Your Garage Door Open Again!

December 21, 2011 Leave a comment

How many times have you been gripped with the sudden realization that you may have forgotten to close your garage door?

Garage Door CloserIt’s a pretty common mistake, but it can be a costly one, since that open expanse can be an enticing lure to thieves. Make sure the largest door to your home is closed securely with the automatic Garage Door Closer, which triggers your garage door opener automatically after a user-specified amount of time if left open.

Mount the sensor on your garage door using the included mounting tape or screws. When the door is closed, the detection rod is retracted; when the door is open, the detection rod is extended and sends a wireless signal to the wall console, which in turn triggers your garage door opener to shut the door. Planning to work in the garage for a while? A single button press locks the receiver so it won’t close when you don’t want it to.

Since it has a built-in antenna, the included wall console can accept commands sent by a keychain remote, sold separately. The wall console’s learning function makes connection easy. Read more
