Is anyone going to answer my question?

Good morning, you don’t have to plumb it in for its basic function, as a freezer, to work.

Please be aware that it’s before 9am on a Sunday; this isn’t a 24x7 service.

it will definitely not harm the fridge/freezer if we just plug it in and use it as a basic appliance for a while before plumbing it in?
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 2 months ago.

Correct. It’s as if the freezer was powered during a water outage. If you’re unsure, you should follow the guidance in the installation manual.
