That would work .
I hope once this is hooked up and running it is so much more convenient that you would have ever expected (worry free)
what I would recommend is the next time you go to the store you purchased it from ,
And just asked to speak to the store manager, explain your issue , and that nothing was told to you about the water hook up .And they might give you a gift or even a small refund I`m hoping ,but I can not be sure you understand.
I appreciate your suggestion. Yesterday I did just that--went to the store. Unfortunately I didn't ask for the store manager. The only man on the floor at the time was peevish about the matter, replying much the same of you, that I should have known. As we were discussing the problem, a second employee (perhaps the manager?) appeared and asked for an explanation. He was courteous, even sympathetic, agreeing with me that elderly customers should have all the details. However, no offer of a refund or gift.
I will now write Sears' higher-ups. I'm mad as hell and don't want to take it anymore.
