Ice Maker Supply Replacement
Posted by Dave on April 12, 19100 at 10:41:16:
We discovered that the water from our Refrigerator water dispenser had an extremely high amount of
copper. I was told that the copper in the water was probably from the soft copper supply line that runs from the
water supply to the refrigerator since soft copper will release copper but hard copper will not. First, is that
true and if so, does that happen over a long period of time? (Been in the home 20 years).

Secondly, the line runs up through the attic area of my home and, living in Florida it gets very hot up there
in the summer. Is there a plastic pipe that can be used to replace the supply or should I replace with soft
copper again?
