Purchased a New Keurig K425 2.0 Plus Coffee Maker - Check out this Mod.

Do You Own a New Keurig 2.0 K4xx, K5xx with a 70oz or 80oz Water Reservoir? Are you fed up of refilling it with water?

I designed a "Never Fill" Float System that eliminates the need to refill. It uses a standard small Aquarium style float system ($8 from eBay or an aquarium parts supplier) and a custom adapter I knocked up on my 3D Printer. I would say the Skill Level to install is about a 5 - 6 out of 10 with 10 being the most difficult.

This is the third machine I have done this to. Of course I had to create an adapter for each machine's water reservoir. I constantly wonder why new machines do not come with an optional water supply line as it is most inconvenient to keep filling the things up. Especially if you drink as much as we do. Water is provided via an optional filter from the Refrigerator water line.

Does anyone else do stuff like this?
