Good Engineering!

Someone was thinking when they made this fridge; instead of making some odd-shaped plastic water holding tank that would be a pain to install and replace, they just coiled up a bunch of the standard water supply tubing they were already using to route water through the fridge to the icemaker and door.

The coil is roughly 12 inches in diameter and 3 inches thick; the tubing is 0.33 inch outer diameter and 0.25 inch inner diameter. This means there’s ~60 feet of tubing holding ~2.5 quarts of water.
