    Default Reverse Osmosis from garage to adjacent kitchen

    I am installing a tankless reverse osmosis system in my garage.

    What is the proper way to route the 3/8" purified water outlet tubing through the garage wall to the adjacent kitchen? I'm guessing I shouldn't just drill a hole through the wall.

    This is the system: http://www.hydrologicsystems.com/pro...olutionRO_1000

    Why not? It should be the easiest way then seal around the tube with caulking.

    It sounded too easy

    Seriously though, I assumed there would be a code that said I couldn't do it that way, because of a fire rating on the wall or some such thing.

    If you have a fire, a 1/4" hole in the wall with be the least of your proglems.
