I get this question a lot from people who are sick and tired of manually filling up their Keurig’s water reservoir after every handful of brews. It’s MUCH easier (not to mention time-saving) to simply have your water tank automatically refill each time it gets low on water. So, the question people often ask me is:
Which Keurig brewer models are compatible with the various Plumb Kits and Direct Water Line Filter Kits on the market?
The short answer is: all of them. The real question you should be asking, however, is whether or not your particular Keurig brewer model is compatible with what’s called a Direct Water Line Plumb Kit. If so, congratulations! The installation process will be a whole lot easier for you.
What is a Direct Water Line Plumb Kit?
Essentially, the Plumb Kit, as it’s called, is really just a fancy mechanical water reservoir (yes it replaces your existing reservoir) which contains built in plumbing gadgets, such as water float valves, etc., that allow you to hook your Keurig Coffee Maker directly into your home or office’s water supply in order to automatically refill the water reservoir on your Brewer.
So What Keurig Brewer Models are Compatible with the Direct Water Line Plumb Kit?
Not all brewer models are compatible with the Plumb Kit. Only the following Keurig brewers are are compatible:
- B150 / K150
- K155 /B155
- K150P /B150P
- K2500 (Replaced the older K150/B150 models)
- K3000 /K3000SE
- B3000 / B3000SE
- OfficePro Premier Commercial Brewing System
As you might notice, Keurig only made its Plumb Kit compatible with the more “commercial” type brewer models. Keurig does not currently offer a Direct Plumb Kit for the Keurig 2.0, Classic, or other similar “home” market segment brewers.
Once you have the Plumb Kit, you will also need this Keurig Water Filter Kit to complete the process.
UPDATE: Keurig has recently stopped manufacturing the Plumb Kits, and are beginning to phase out the K150/B150 model brewers altogether. Replacing these brewers is their new plumbable version of the K2500 model which does not require a separate Plumb Kit reservoir (good news!). If you have the Keurig K2500 brewer, you will only need this Direct Water Line Filter Kit.
However, if your brewer model is not listed above, don’t fret. This does not mean you cannot connect your brewer to a Direct Water Line. In fact, there is now a handy Do It Yourself Filter Kit on the market which allows you to do just that. It also has the added bonus of filtering your water too!
I purchased one of these for my Keurig 2.0 brewer a few weeks ago and I love it. It allows me to fill my water reservoir with the flip of a switch, without having to take any trips to the sink. I plan to add a new blog post detailing the installation process for those of you like me who do not have a commercial brewer.
I will update soon.
