The FloJet Model BW1000A Bottled Water Dispensing System is designed to pump water from commercially available 3, 5, or 6 gallon water bottles. The system delivers the bottled water under pressure to a sink mounted drinking water faucet, or to the water inlet of a refrigerator, icemaker, coffee brewer, or Jupiter Water Ionizer. The suction wand, when inserted into the water bottle, activates the float switch on the pump. This float switch also shuts off the system when the bottle is empty. The wand has a built in back-flow valve to prevent water from flowing back into the bottle. Universal seal cap most containers - Fits 3, 5, and 6 gallon plastic water bottles Suction wand and hose assembly Float switch for automatic shut-off when bottle is empty. Built-in check valve to prevent back flow Pump module with On/Off switch Installation and maintenance instructions Compact size for easy traveling

The instructions recommend a sanitation process with some household bleach and a bucket of water, which I performed. Installation was very simple, as it basically consists of connecting the pump to your fridge, placing the dip tube in a bottle of water, and plugging in the pump. I got lucky in that the water tube built into my fridge was long enough to reach the pump where I wanted to install it, so I just plugged it into the pump. (The fridge tubing and the pump outlet were the same size.) If I'd had to use some of the tubing included with the pump that would have required a trip to the hardware store to get a connector to join the two.
Flojet recommends/requires that you remove any filter in your fridge, they say it will damage the pump if you have one. Not that you'd probably want to filter your bottled water anyway. Conveniently when I removed the filter from my fridge it bypassed itself automatically and just let the water go through. The instructions say that you might be able to get a blank filter from your fridge manufacturer if that's not the case with your fridge. You could test this in advance, just pull the filter from your fridge and see if you can still dispense water.
The dip tube is sized for 5 gallon bottles, we have 3 gallon bottles delivered so the tube is a bit longer than we need and sticks out of the top of the bottle a ways. There's unfortunately no way to shorten it, as the top and bottom fittings are glued on.
And the pump is a bit loud. In our case it is sitting on the counter beside the fridge, I imagine if we could put it in a cabinet it wouldn't be so noticeable. During the day when the house is active it's not too bad, but at night when the house is quiet it seems rather loud.
Overall I'm quite happy. It's nice to have ice that tastes good and one less appliance taking up space and power in the kitchen.
Well, we have had this connected to our refrigerator water line for about a year now, and we couldn't be happier. The bottles sit out in the garage, all lined up to transfer the pump to from one to the other as they empty. No more lifting bottles!
The most important thing to me, though, is the lovely bottled-water ice cubes and chilled water that is always available now.
Someone should have thought of this a long time ago!!
We have an RO filter at home, so the better answer for us was to buy three 5-gallon water bottles, fill them at home or a local store, and haul them to the cabin. So we had drinking water, but still no ice and water in the door. Enter the Flojet-this little pump is a cinch to install (it took longer to slide the refrigerator out and push it back) and works perfectly. Other reviewers have complained about the noise, and I found it was much quieter resting on the concrete floor. When I mounted it on the wall, it was definitely much louder.
This unit works flawlessly, and is very quiet if care is taken about placement.
opportunities for improvement:
* Try the product is quieter, when this power makes a sound that can be a little unpleasant, like a "hum".
* The suction tube that goes inside the water tank should be longer, adjustable height, or ending in a curve to make the most of the water inside the bottle, because the tube is at a distance of 2 inches from the bottom of the bottle and therefore remain an amount of water is not pumped.

It's a little loud when pumping but bearable.Read more
