install water line to fridge

Post by mrnaja » Sat Mar 02, 2019 6:46 am

Hi,

So i was looking at your video "How To Install A Water Line To A Refridgerator" and i tried to look for the kit you are referring to but could not find it anywhere. I do want to install another valve from the sink.
Any idea where to get this kit in Canada? I check Home depot and Rona but no luck.
Appreciate your help.

Just realized that this must go under plumbing :)

This is the kit, I am very surprised your local home improvement store didn't have it:

Do NOT use the saddle-valve that comes with it. Instead, install a push-fit ball-joint valve in your water supply for the hose to terminate to, like Shannon's video describes.

Actually this kit has the push-fit valve:

I have videos to both styles but the little poly line and saddle style can give trouble over time so it is way better to use these other kits. Here is a link to Rona s here in Canada.https://www.rona.ca/en/ice-maker-connector-kit-01735520
