Answer: 
Yes. G.E. offers a 15-ft. version (WX08X10015) and a 25-ft version (WX08X10025) in the same SmartConnect Water Line series. However, Home Depot doesn't offer these lengths for purchase in-store or on-line.
You may purchase them on-line directly from G.E. or from another on-line vendor if you do a little searching.
I do not recommend buying two 6-ft. water lines in an attempt to splice them together. Read More

I do not recommend buying two 6-ft. water lines in an attempt to splice them together. Not only will you need to find a special fitting to splice two female 1/4" compression fittings together, but it'll cost more AND introduce more connection points that might decide to leak later on down the road.
Good luck! Read Less

Will this make my water taste like plastic?

This question is from 8 ft. SmartConnect Universal Ice Maker Water Supply Line
Asked by
Allison Park, PA

November 16, 2014
I have a whirlpool refrigerator. It came with a plastic tubing line for the icemaker. I replaced it after a kitchen remodel with a steel braded tube thinking it would be better. We could not get over the strong metal taste. I then replace that one with a pvc version. Still bad taste. Do you know if this GE SmartConnect tube will cause any funny tastes in the water?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: 
It seems that almost all of the water tubing inside modern refrigerators are made of this same or similar plastic tubing. Even water lines in homes are made of some form of plastic (CPVC, etc.) or another. As such, you're essentially adding more of the same. We can certainly hope that G.E. has done their homework before choosing their materials!
For sure, you should flush several gallons of water Read More

For sure, you should flush several gallons of water through your new water line immediately after installation. I literally installed mine on a brand-new refrigerator a few hours ago. It tastes okay to me, and certainly better than drinking from a plastic water bottle, In any case the water filter installed inside the refrigerator is downstream of the SmartConnect hose, and I'm sure that helps.
The quality of your water supply may also play a significant role in whether or not plastic tubing will affect taste. The Langelier Index is a good indication of whether your water is aggressive or not. Read Less

Answer: 
I have a new G.E. refrigerator, but a different model than yours. It has a 1/4" male compression fitting and I presume all their new refrigerators do,
If your existing copper tubing has a female 1/4" compression fitting, you're good to go.

Your question is unclear so I will try to answer it. The kit comes ready with a nut at both ends pre-attached to the tubing. When I installed mine, I didn't need any additional parts.

This product has a female 1/4" compression fitting on each end. From what I can tell on Samsung"s website, their refrigerators are fitted with male 1/4" compression fittings.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ice Maker Supply Line They haven't installed it yet Too early to tell, but I have been satisfied with the service and quality of all the recent purchases I have made at the store. Reasonably priced, too! July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well-Built and Easy-to-install Much cheaper than copper materials. will do the job. Someone complains 8' is too short, but I think it is right. No line falls to ground when pushed in. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to work with (need a 15 ft version) Very to easy to work with . Needed to put two of them together to make the distance which was more expensive than copper. This is much easier to work with than copper June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Problem Switching from a 14 year old Kenmore to a newer Whirlpool refrigerator. Dislike doing plumbing so I did some research to see if supply lines compatible. To my relief both fridges used 3/8 fittings and my supply line was 3/8. The 8' was ample. And reviews said I needed a 1/2" wrench so I had that ready. Hooked up the supply line, checked for leaks, none. Seems I made a simple job complicated. Tip: after I attached it to the supply valve I opened the valve and a little black water shot out. Don't know if it came from my source or in the supply line. After it came out clear I attached it to the fridge and everything works. February 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick. Easy. Inexpensive. This product is about as simple as can be. One hose easily connects in seconds. I spent more time looking for the two 1/2" wrenches needed for the installation than I spent in the actual installation Itself. I was concerned that the 6' length might not be enough for me to move the refrigerator to facilitate cleaning the floor. Not only is it long enough to move the refrigerator completely off its normal footprint, but it's short enough so the hose doesn't touch the floor and get in the way of cleaning ops. I highly recommend flushing at least a couple gallons of water through your refrigerator's water dispenser immediately after completing the installation. It's the wise thing to do. This water hose is the same material as the water hose installed inside the refrigerator itself, so I don't quite understand how it can adversely affect taste as much as indicated in one of the reviews I've read. Indeed virtually all modern plumbing materials are manufactured out of some form of plastic or other. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice replacement for copper lines Pro's: easy to install, flexible, fits most connections, doesn't leak Con's: could be 2 feet longer. Not quite long enough to comfortably stretch the 5 feet from water inlet to unit on refrigerator. Fits, but very taut. Overall, would recommend to anyone needing to replace existing water lines to their fridge. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hosed It's an easy to use connecting tube for icemaker, no tast left in water. February 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not long enough The connecting hose is no where long enough and I am stuck having to purchase more. If my fridge was sitting right next to my sink it still would not have been long enough. I feel I should have been given options on length of hose so I could have installed my fridges features the day I got my new appliance. Other than that it is a connection hose. November 10, 2015
