Any thoughts?
The plastic line on the fridg is after the solenoid valve and is not subject to constant water pressure pressure. Not in danger of bursting and flooding the house.

Plastic ice maker water lines suck. Always use copper with coils rolled up in back of frig so it can be pulled out for service and cleaning.

If plastic lines suck I suspect my wife thought of a lot of descriptive words for this. It was only her thoughts but I probably said them after the phone conversation while I was 300 miles away.

You must be using the wrong kind of plastic. I have plastic and no issues. But the again, I have mine properly attached and it's easy to access and work on.

Are you addressing plastic pipe (PEX or CPVC) or the plastic tubing to connect to the ice maker solenoid valve?

Running that plastic tubing under cabinets or in hidden areas in a recipe for disaster.

Using plastic pie is fine.

I use polyflow...not that thin wall stuff you get at HD or Sears. What I use is rated for about 1000 psi
