This is our second DrinkPod 1000. The original is almost 1 yr old is moving to the basement. The new one is a 1000 Pro, and while they look the same, the improvement is amazing. Light during dispensing, outlet port for icemaker (clean water+clean ice!!), and our favorite improvement is the valves turn slowly, meaning no more pipe knocking when water stops flowing. We loved the Drinkpod 1000, we love the 1000 Pro even more. Thanks for all the improvements.
