Not only do you have ice on demand, but you will never have to make a last-minute ice run ever again. Proper installation of an undercounter ice maker will ensure that the machine works properly and does not leak water into your home or business. Improper installation could lead to reduced ice production, damage to the machine, a shortened lifespan of the unit and possibly damage to your home. While it is possible for a homeowner to install an undercounter ice machine, we do recommend hiring a plumber or licensed contractor to help ensure that all installation requirements are met. A condensate removal pump helps eliminate excess water from your undercounter ice maker. This pump is beneficial if the drain is far away from the machine or if the water must travel on an incline to reach the drain.
