I do not like the plasticie tast that comes with most ice that comes out of in freezer ice makers... I am asuming this copper kit is made to replace the plastic line for just that reason... I assumed that I would need a "T" to pigie back on to some other existing water line... do I need to purchase this seperatly or does the kit come with something else that serves the same purpuse???

Hello Confused,
This ice maker kit taps into a waterline via the use of a saddle valve (the clamp like item in the image) which pierces the line to access water.
If you wanted to still use copper but source the water from the under sink valve you would need additional components. I've listed them below.

The tee is interposed between the supply line and valve while the compression nuts are secured onto the copper pipe. If your not completely comfortable with the assembly procedure a plumber can complete the task relatively quickly. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

I have a brand new fridge, but need to buy a water line kit for it. Instructions with the fridge is hard to read and understand. It talks about drilling a 1/4" hole in my water line, which is over half of the lines diameter. I need something more efficient and easier.

Answer: 
You may be able to use this kit. The saddle valve pierces a hole in the pipe for you, no drilling needed. I have to replace mine as it keeps leaking. I would recommend installing this after the shut off valve if possible and not before. Mine is before and I have to shut the water off at the street to replace the saddle valve now. Attached is a great video on this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done! Fits well, I feel more comfortable using this copper line versus a plastic line. Included everything I needed to install. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UNIVERSAL 15 FT. COPPER ICE MAKER INSTALLATION KIT I was going to make my own out of plastic tube. It was the same price and the Home Depot guy told me use the copper it won't fail. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install This product worked great and it was easy to install. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Just got a fridge with a water dispenser and ice maker so I go this. I'm handy and have done minor plumbing work, but the instruction on which small pieces go where is lacking. I ended up with 1 white plastic spacer/washer that I didn't use as I couldn't fit it anywhere. Still, without it, I have NO LEAK. I tapped under the sink, drilled holes at the lowest point of 2 sections of cabinet and drawers walls for the copper line to go through. March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect and nice quality Did the job great and no leaks and seems a lot better than plastic kits. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great Quick and easy. Use this rather than plastic...... March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by much needed purchase would recommend this product over a plastic line anytime. easy to install and not as easily affected by vibration January 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked It was a copper tube and saddle valve (which I didn't use). I was installing an ice maker and didn't want to run plastic to the floor feed for the water. I also didn't want to use a saddle valve so instead I used a shark bite 3/4 in x 3/8 in x 3/4 in ball valve instead. I don't see the thrill with saddle valves especially since the pressure is completely relying on a piece of rubber which could easily be susceptible to dry rot or other corrosion. A Sharke Bite is a sealed unit that in my case sweated in and is working perfectly. From the floor to the fridge I used the plastic line which worked flawlessly but is also now easily replaced in case of failure. September 22, 2015
