Plywood Subfloor Leveling with Plywood Sheets: How To Raised the Level of the Floor

In this video you'll see how you can do plywood subfloor leveling using the plywood sheets. I was going to install a hardwood floor (5/8" thickness) but there was a problem with subfloor: a...

Works fine. To get any water pressure, must be elevated quite high off the ground.Biggest peeve: forgot to drain one winter and got a crack near the valve that nothing will fix! Not caulk, not pvc glue. I don't want to have to buy a whole new one! I'm back to try to figure out what kind of plastic this is!Hose does not swivel and in my case a crimp developed so that I had to hold the crimp straight for any water to come out.Other than that, lies flat against the house, is unobtrusive. I've thought sometimes of putting a planter on top.

If you don't have the hole saw and the tube, I recommend the package they offer as it has everything you need.

EDIT: I added a customer image to show the main problem with this device here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B005CJFBJE/ref=cm_cr_dp_cust_img_see_all_txtPros:- Comes with hole saws- Simple design makes for an easy installCons:- Incredibly cheap plastic spigot. I went out and bought a metal quarter turn ball valve for about $8 and fixed this issue.- The insert plugs gutters without gutter guards. We've had a few drenching rainstorms lately where I've noticed mulch from a few beds washed out. During one of them, I walked out to witness our gutter overflowing with water. The next day, I pulled out the insert from the gutter to see that it was plugged solid with 6-12" of pine needles and mini pine cones from nearby white pines. The same day, I noticed that our basement was wet in that spot, so it appears that all of the water overflowing the gutters caused some issues.- The insert causes quite an obstruction in the downspout. During really heavy rains, I've witnessed the top of our rainbarrel overflowing even though the hole was drilled several inches down the barrel. If I had the time, I'd dust off the old fluid dynamics books and see what volume of water it would take to fully fill a 2x3" duct with water, then convert that duct into a ~1.5" circular hole. I'd be willing to bet that it's possible to cause a major backup in the downspout with that big of an obstruction. A backup in the downspout will push more water into the barrel and overflow, or potentially overflow all the way up to the gutters.Water on the foundation is not worth saving a few gallons of rainwater for. I've got two rainbarrels with this system installed. I'm planning on converting the one that gets lots of flow to the fiskars design. It widens the gutter and might allow for greater overflow during heavy rains.

This runty old woman still has a few skills. I have had two 55gal drums sitting at the side of my yard waiting for me to find a rain barrel conversion kit like this one. Neighbors whose windows overlook my yard may have been amused to see me straddle the barrel to drill the holes needed, but, at the end of the day, I had one perfectly functional rain barrel. Based on another review, I also purchased a brass faucet to replace the plastic one provided in the kit. There does not really appear to be anything wrong with the plastic faucet; it seems to be a good heavy-duty outdoor quality item, and I will probably use it on the other barrel once I decide which downspout would be the best placement. Getting the interior ring into the hole from the outside (because my barrel's lid is not removable) should have been equally amusing, but it got done.The instructions were clear and comprehensive, including directions for different kinds of barrels.The kit has everything needed to convert such a drum to a rain barrel with the exception, of course, of the drill and pipe sealant tape.Because I ordered the two-pack, I now have two sets of hole saws. Would have been more cost-effective ((Have you seen the current pricing!?!) and sensible to have been packaged AS a two-pack, with one set of saws. Also, less clutter in the tool box. Nevertheless, this was an excellent buy.

This is doing a great job so far. I've had it installed for a month and no problems. I've seen complaints about the upper valve being made of plastic, but I've also read that the plastic water barrels can have a chemical reaction with brass.I knocked it down a star because I'm really not looking forward to finding the winterizing cap when it comes time. Hope I don't lose it before then. Also not looking forward to potentially mangling my downspout when I have to take it out for winterizing.But it earned a lot of stars because the design makes a separate overflow hose unnecessary. This one design element is what kept me from hitting the Go button a year earlier on other products. Gotta warn you though that measure twice and cut once during install. The overflow only works if you follow the directions precisely, namely that the hose needs to stay level between the barrel and the downspout tap - no drooping.One suggestion for other buyers: there is a tap and cap you put at the bottom for draining or hose hookup. I strongly recommend getting an inline 1/4 turn valve so that you can open it only when you need it. Or, attach a short hose that can go above the waterline and leave it pulled up unless you want to draw water. Make the hose clear and you'll know where the water level is for at least the first year. The water and sun will probably ruin a clear hose after that.I discovered that I use a lot more water than I thought and that my rain barrel is only going to last a week or 10 days. Think about it. Five gallons of watering all your outdoor plants each day. 50 gallon barrel. 10 days conservatively. Before committing to a rain barrel, I recommend using your hose to fill a 5 gallon bucket with water (e.g. Home Depot "small trip" orange bucket) and then see how much of that you use. You might want a second or third barrel.
