Water line to fridge question.


thank you for that coldiron,

my saying 10' is me regurgitating max length( in my code) for the supply. and as you say to secure it to the fridge and wall is a great point, the water supply to a fridge is a scary connection because you cant see it. when installed with hardwood floor, by the time you recognize a leak its a couple thousand dollars to late.

I purchased a 1/4" braided steel line that is made for fridges. It also has a auto shutoff on it that if for some reason it bursts it shuts off. My plumber is coming buy to re terminate the end of the pex so we can install the braided steel.

Okay, got it. My plumber has a standard 1/4" braided line to use. I will take the other one back.
