No more filter bucket for me, thanks. I got tired of forgetting to fill it, and losing that fridge space. And the icemaker was useless because the ice tasted and smelled like shit.
So I put in one of those filters that has its own faucet, and I split the output to go to the icemaker. The water is indistinguishable from what was coming from the Pur filter.
Mating plastic and brass is a TOTAL PAIN IN THE ASS. You don’t want to over tighten it because you will tear the threads right off the plastic, but you put it all together and it leaks, so you tighten, and tighten, and tighten some more. Now I’m just hoping nothing goes BANG and sends water all over the house.
