Research finds almost two thirds of consumers NEVER plumb in their new appliances

Research finds almost two thirds of consumers NEVER plumb in their new appliances

We’re all guilty of wasting money on frivolous items, but when it comes to large home appliances, most of us would like to think we avoid unnecessary expense and research all the options available. But, with a whopping three in five homeowners buying fridges featuring an ice and water dispenser that they never plumb in, perhaps not all the additional extras are considered.

While women are faster than men at getting their pipes in order and their appliances sorted, there’s still a staggering amount of UK homes whose fridge ice and water dispensers run dry. With 60% of consumers leaving their fridges unplumbed, the prospect of plumbing complexities is clearly a turn-off for consumers.
