Can I connect two of these lines together?

Asked by Mo October 31, 2015
1
Answer

Hi Mo - Thank you for your question concerning the 60 in. Braided Stainless Icemaker Connector by Fluidmaster, Inc. Fluidmaster recommends not connecting two braided lines together but rather use one length of tubing to make this very long connection. In cases where more than 10 feet is required using an icemaker copper tubing is recommended. For any additional questions about the Fluidmaster 60 in. Braided Stainless Icemaker Connector or any of our products please contact Fluidmaster's Technical Service Department. Technical Services is available from 5:30 AM through 5:00 PM Monday through Friday Pacific Standard Time.

Can this connect to a copper line?

Asked by Jenny June 25, 2015
1
Answer

Hi Molly We suggest replacing the copper line entirely so that the Braided Stainless Icemaker Cnnector can make a direct connection to both the angle stop and the refridgerator. It is not recommended to join the two supply lines.

Do we need extra fittings and will it work with outside refrigerator water filter?

Asked by KatGirl April 22, 2015

Hi KatGirl The hose should be all you need to make the connection without any additional parts. If you have any further questions contact Fluidmaster thru ourt Chat: www.fluidmaster.com/support E-Mail techsupport@fluidmaster.com Phone: 800-631-2011

I had Fluidmaster 12IM120-2 installed on my brand new refrigerator in my brand new house many years ago. From day 1, the water and ice dispensed from the refrigerator had a weird odor and I could not drink the water due to the unpleasant odor. I thought there was something wrong with the refrigerator all these years and very frustrated that I could not find where the problem was. I called a refrigerator technician one last time, he suggested and replaced the connector and solved the problem. It appeared to have defective seals as shown in the picture which I took. I am very furious with all the years I faced with the odor because of it.

I had to install a new fridge with icemaker/water dispenser in a home that never had one before, where the water line was downstairs and quite a ways from where the fridge would be, this 120" connector line worked perfectly. It's full braided stainless steel line with 1/4" female connectors on each end. These 1/4" ends will fit almost all the icemakers/water lines built into fridges out there. I hooked one end up to the fridge and it screwed on tightly. The other end was screwed onto the shut-off valve and it also went on well with no issues or leaks. Adjust with the proper sized wrench so you don't strip the connector. This is a far better product than cheap vinyl lines and their loose fittings. You can depend on this lines for years to come. There was no odd taste after the line was flushed with around three gallons of water to clean the lines as you should always do after an install of new lines. I will be buying this for any other refrigerator icemaker/water dispenser installs and replacements from now on.

Many reviews from this kind of hose complained about the taste of the ice cubes. I dumped the first bucket and I can't taste the difference between bagged store- bought ice and this. As a matter of fact ,this ice tastes better. Hooked up in less than ten minutes. I'm very satisfied with this product.
