Default New fridge with Ice maker and water dispenser

Quick question, we just bought one of those, but i want to use bottled water instead of the mains water.

Anyone else done this. All the instruction manuals seem to point to connecting a tube direct from the mains water inlet.

We did this. I'm not sure if you'll have to do the same thing, but we had to buy an additional water pump for a couple hundred dibbs. You then simply put one end of the pipe in the water bottle, and the other plugs into the machine. Sorted!

well the ****ing fridge doesnt work. Well the pump does, must be an issue with the water/ice maker.

Yea, we are totally loving it. I have my side of the garage decked out into my home office/triathlon store. Beer fridge, coffee maker etc. Its my little den...happy days.

Still not got round to getting up any pictures or anything in the house and my daughters windows are covered in bin liners as i cant be arsed putting up the curtains (family are in Scotland right now)

Also next door kindly donated a lovely trampoline that is now in bits at my back door. That is my summer project.

If anyone is good at building trampolines, there is free beer on offer to build the bloody thing.

We looked at a lot of places around Dubai, and for us, factoring schooling (lack of) availability, this was the right choice.

Interestingly i had a post ride coffee with this bloke this morning who complained that he has to drive from Jumeirah to Jess in AR to take his 4 year old to school...Well my heart bleeds. I live in the Ranches and we can even get our little one on the waiting list lol.
