Thread: Refrigerator Water Line

  1. #1

    Default Refrigerator Water Line

    Hi,
    Is plastic or copper tubing best for the refrigerator water line --or should I use a braided steel one? Our refrigerator has a plastic water line coming up from the floor and I want to make sure this is the right one -- I keep reading conflicting things. Thanks.

    I prefer the copper lines. Also if your water line happens to be on a saddle valve it should be replaced as well.

    I use either copper or the braided stainless.

    I don't like the 1/4" OD plastic. I've seen them split.
