Water line connection to a frig

i just purchased a new frig at Loews which has the auto ice maker. i also purchased a self pearcing connection kit. My piping in the houseis CPVC. The fellow at Loews assured me this kit would work with this type of piping but I am questioning this. Can this type of kit be used for this type of piping?

I wouldn't do it. You're more likely to shatter the CPVC than to pierce it.

We're not allowed to use them here.

The easiest way to do it IMO for you would be to use a sharkbite tee. If you're comfortable gluing a tee in, that would be better.

After the tee, use appropriate reducer fittings to get to your 1/4" tubing.
