Good idea. That will be on my next order.

I'm gonna stick with the picnic faucets for now. I'm pretty sure that it will be no problem to install taps on my fridge door though. Any ideas on taps?

Any idea if a piece of plastic window screen mesh work? I'm thinking about cutting out a circle of this and using a zip tie to attach it to my Auto-Siphon. I have a roll of this sitting in the garage.
