Ever-lasting Soap Dispenser

I have one of those built in soap dispensers in my kitchen. I like the convenience and uncluttered look of this system but it does have a major drawback... the doh factor when the soap runs out (I hate it when this happens). 
My contractor had long ago told me about this trick so today on a trip to Costco, I bought this ginormous jug of detergent.
I bought some vinyl tubing at my neighborhood hardware store. I brought the dispenser part with me to make sure I got the right size tubing for the plastic straw.
 I cut the squeeze portion off of the jug cap with a hacksaw.

This so totally works. I wonder how many months of carefree suds I have ahead of me?

That is such a genius idea. I have one of those soap dispensers too, and never fail to overload and have dish soap running hither and nither. Thanks for this idea - I bookmarked it so when I climb out from the Christmas crazy I am in right now I can implement this!

still haven't unexpectedly run out of soap six months later, although I do have a reserve bottle in my garage. I love this system! -Caitlin
