Dianne-scooping out defrost water

Hi Dianne,
A handy hint for us short people trying to reach the bottom of the freezer, use a siphon. All you need is a lenght of garden hose, fill it with water being careful to keep your thumbs over both ends, insert one end into the water and release making sure it stays underwater. Put the other end where you want it to drain to making sure it is lower than the first end and release. This is easier to do with a partner but not impossible by yourself. You can hang the hose out a window, into the sump or into buckets lined up. If the suction is broken on the first end (any air gets in) you will have to start over from step one. Hope this helps.
