When we bought our latest refrigerator, I opted for a basic model, no frill,except self defrosting. No ice maker, no water dispenser. I'm only sorry about the ice maker and water dispenser when someone , who shall remain nameless, in our two person
household, does not fill up the filtered water bottle. It's like having a screen door that the kids are always slamming. No matter how many times you comment, it remains a slamming screen door or an empty water bottle. I have a thing about water being in the
pipe leading to the refrigerator. How long does it stay there, does it stay warm in that tube, is the tube plastic, is it copper, does bacteria grow in it. I rather not know, but I think it. I am not the most sanitary person on the planet, and I have been
known to pick up a pacifier,lick it and put it in the baby's mouth. But I guess everyone has their little strange behaviors and the water in a fridge dispenser is mine. Live with it.
