As the ice box drain has been connected to the fresh water system previously, I would recommend you disconnect it, donít drink from the line, clean and disinfect the water tank, replace the water line from the tank to the pump and pump to the sink. Pull the pump apart and give it a good cleaning of replace it, it is a huge health risk. If you think about ice boxes/ fridges and the muck that gets spilt inside them including blood from raw chicken/steaks/fish, soft drink, wine, also people getting things out of the unit after using the head (YES NOT EVERY BODY WASHES THIER HANDS). Nothing that has the possibility to contaminate the fresh water supply should be allowed to come anywhere near let alone be connected to it.
