Cannot find valve for fridge line...options?


Frustrating little problem. I have been in my house about 3 years, fridge came with the house and may be replacing it soon. The house has a finished walk out basement and I think the valve for the fridge line is behind a finished ceiling. So I have a copper line popping up from the floor behind my fridge and no way to turn it off aside from the main house valve

Forgot to add the rest.


So do I turn off the main and add a valve to the end of the copper tube? If so what kind?

I have a phone line toner, maybe I can use that to try and trace the pipe.

If I knew exactly where the valve was is the ceiling I would just put a hatch

Ok false alarm. After reading other posts on fridge water lines I took a peek under my kitchen sink across the kitchen sure enough there is a valve on the cold water line going into the floor.

That must be it!
