Ice makers are very important for the hospitality business. Under counter, ice makers are mostly used in food-related business. Based on the type of drainage system under counter ice makers are divided into two types. They are inbuilt drainage pump ice makers and gravity drain ice makers. Make sure that there is some form of drainage system near the ice makers since the water must be removed constantly. Water from the ice makers is mostly removed during the defrost cycle. If you do not have a drainage facility near the ice maker then the drain pump ice maker is the best choice.

So if you have a problem with the ice maker’s drainage system you should pay for the service. So the experts always recommend buying drain pump ice makers. The problem with the drainage system will affect ice production and also damage the surrounding water system.
