Ice Maker Water Line
Running an ice maker water line can be an easy job for the do it yourselfer. It used to be that the only way to add an ice maker water line was to run a 1/4" copper pipe from the nearest source of water. Now there are 1/4" flex lines in all lengths from 1’ up to 20’ that can be used a an ice maker water line and provide the necessary water. This makes it easy to just measure about how far you will have to run a line, allow a little extra at the fixture and buy the length you need. In most cases the water line can be run through the kitchen cabinets over to the refrigerator. If running the line through the cabinets is not feasible you might need to run a line through the floor and up to where the refrigerator is located.
