I got lucky! As it goes with anything I install for plumbing, it's understood I am going to make three trips to the Big Orange Box Store for piece parts.
This installed beautifully and without problem, like I had done this before. I had already replaced my plumbing under the sink during the kitchen remodel with a 1/4" shut off for our future GE refrigerator. With the use of a 5/8" paddle bit, I drilled holes out of view and through the rear of our cabinets and had a couple feet of slack to connect the 1/4" fitting at the fridge. I flushed the line out into a 5 gallon bucket before I hooked it up to the fridge. For the first time in 30+ years, we have a refrigerator that dispenses ice AND water! Woo-Hoo!
We just got a new ref and I Googled a lot what kind of kit (and how to install ) to use for the built-in water dispenser/ice maker.
I noted that most of them recommended the use of copper tubes since it would eliminate the "plastic" taste in the water & ice.
Since we already have an existing GE SmartWater filter and faucet for use in our kitchen sink that use the polypropylene 1/4 ODL tubing, using this GE item was the obvious choice.
And, when I looked at the back of the new ref where this water line will connect, I found out that although the cap where it will screw on is made of copper, from there, all tubing that goes to the ice maker & water dispenser on the ref are all made of polypropylene plastic - - so what's the use of using copper???
So, with this item plus a union-T and shutoff valve (all polypropylene 1/4 ODL) - all bought via Amazon - in about 30 minutes, water & ice were coming out from the access door in our new...
I bought a Whirlpool fridge from a big box store and the water line they included for ten dollars was only four feet. I returned it and bought this along with a quick tee adapter and the hook up was perfect. It took longer to drill the hole through the solid wood cabinet than anything else.
