At first thought, you may think that ice machine accessories are mere details, and that the most important things are the ice machines themselves. However, the functionality, longevity and even cleanliness of ice machines, as well as the resulting ice, is usually contingent upon certain accessories such as water filters and bin top kits.
Ice machines look handsome with their stylish stainless steel, smudge-proof exteriors, but inside there is the potential for the hobgoblins of bacteria, lime scale and other offensive microbes to enter your machine. Prevent these pests from contaminating in your ice by using an Ice-O-Matic water filter on any ice machine you use. Water filter systems use activated carbon to remove bad tastes and odors while also removing sediment and other mineral deposits. Water filters not only provide the means to keep your incoming water clean and fresh, thus helping to maintain a sanitary interior, but they can also extend your Ice-O-Matic warranty. Purchasing an Ice-O-Matic water filtration system along with your new ice machine will extend the warranty coverage on your evaporator to a total of seven years; just make sure to replace the filter cartridge every six months, a price well-worth paying for this extra insurance policy.
