Ice Maker Connection


I am adding a second refrigerator. The connection for water for the ice maker will be very close to where the original connection was made. I have attached a picture of the current fitting. Is there a fitting to make a tee out of this to go to the second fridge so I don't need to cut, solder, etc.? A link to the specific item at Lowes would be helpful.

One of these, a short 1/2 nipple and 2, brass inserts that slip inside the valve will work.

This link shows three way valves in the middle of the page and quick tees at the bottom. Your problem will be to find one with 2, 1/4" branches.

That is the same angle stop used under sinks or for toilet shut offs.
Personally I wouldn't use that plastic tubing in my house. We just had two of them in the office feeding the coffee machines split open do to age (about 6 years).

Thanks to all. If I decide to stay with plastic tubing, could I use this? I found it on the plumbingsupply.com website.

Is there a flexible tubing I can use? I'd rather not use copper so I don't have to be careful about kinking.... Such as PEX?
