Re: Compresion post repaired
A nice way to pump the icebox is with a foot pump connected to a spigot on the sink. The unobvious reason for this? In the morning or early afternoon, when the sink is empty and likekly to stay that way, you put in the stopper, pump the icebox, and now you've got a sink full of reasonably clean ice water to cool down drinks for the hot part of the day.
Don't need the cold drinks? That's ok, you can still pump the meltwater down the galley drain.
