In response to Re: New Water Line for Refrigerator
: Although there is a place for some plastic lines in water filter systems, a line running 10 feet unseen behind or under the cabinets is not it. Plastic is too easily damged, not to mention mice love to chew it. A small leak unseen for many months can be catastrophic.


So, run copper tubing over to the fridge. Behind the fridge, you need some flexibility in order to move the Fridge in and out. This is better done with a 6' braided stainless steel line coupled onto the end of the copper.

In any case, this is a job for a plumber , not an appliance repair tech.
