Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NRH1 Compression fittings don't compress
I bought this kit for the copper line. I skipped using the puncture valve, which is not a valve recommended by plumbers, and bought a separate T fitting for the water line end. That worked fine. The problem was at refrigerator end. The compression fittings that come with this kit don't compress onto the copper line no matter how tight they are tightened. I've worked on my own plumbing for 30 years. I've never run into a compression fitting that won't tighten onto a copper pipe. Maybe the fittings are made for plastic tubing, I don't know. Now I have to go back to the store to find compression fittings that work with copper tubing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SED2747 Thank you for review information
Thank you to all who reviewed that this was not a complete kit. I went to Home Depot knowing this from the reviews. The salesman said everything was in the kit and I didn't need anything else. I told him what I had read on the internet about the extra compression part not being included. He made a remark about things on the internet not being true and showed me what I was asking for but made me feel it wasn't necessary. . Got home and my husband took the kit apart and sure enough, no attachment for refrigerator. I would have been running back too.
Hook up is easy and quick when you have all the parts.
Extra part was a 1/4 inch Compression. ($3 part)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveW Waterline for ice maker and whole-house humidifier
I purchased this product to run water to my existing ice maker and to a new Honeywell whole-house humidifier. The waterline was quality constructed and shapes smoothly.

Missing parts. Had to make 3 trips total till I finally got it installed without it leaking. The clerk went through every package in stock and every one was missing parts. Then ended up using the OD PEX anyway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by buyer Incomplete Kit!
The label for the kit states in bold "This Kit Contains Everything You Need For A Complete Installation". It contains only one brass nut and one ferrule. One needs ONE MORE NUT AND FERRULE FOR A COMPLETE INSTALLATION. Then, the brass nuts and ferrules are sold separately: a 3-nuts package, and a 3-ferrules package. Both packages for almost another $4. Extra cost + another trip + time....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by racerchaser Great product
I'm not much of a Plumber and I was scared after buying a new Fridge that I would have to get a water source for the Ice Maker.
All you do is put the T clamp on the cold water pipe then screw it in, A needle comes out and pop's a hole in the cold water pipe and BAM you don't have to torch any pipes make anything. And when your done you have a nice shut off valve.
Anyone can set this up with little tools needed

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by copperswife Would be nice if they actually put the parts in the package that are shown on line
All of the fittings pictured on line as part of the kit were not included in the kit purchased. Not real happy right now. So we have to trek back to the store to exchange/return. We made a special trip to the store just for this item. Check the package before you leave the store to make sure all parts are there!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Not a Complete Kit for the Modern Frig.
The kit has everything you need for the tap-in to the cold water line but, for the other end (frig connection), the kit does not come with the compression fitting needed to hook up the frig. Buy kit + compression fitting (nut and bevel) for a 1/4 inch copper line.
