    Fuge overflow problem

    Snails have gotten into the pipe which lets the water out of my fuge!! Causing the water to overflow on to the floor. 3-4 gallons of it. I got up this morning found another snail in the pipe!!

    Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to either modify the fuge so that water won't over flow or a way to keep the snails out of the pipe!!

    Just go to the hardware/plumbing store &get one of those orange or blue plastic end caps for the size of pipe you have ,
    not real expensive about a buck or two . cut grooves in the
    cover with either a small hand saw or a mini grinder then push it on the pipe at least this way you can remove it if you need to clean it cheap/simple!!!

    Almost forgot make sure to make 1/4 inch slots in that,&use another chunk of pipe just to hold it while your cutting it alot easier than trying to hold it by hand.
