Q:Can this be used as a refrigerator water line reducer?
by|Mar 14, 2022
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Works great for my fridge

by|Mar 22, 2022

A:  It is my opinion that the "cylindrical" nature of the internal construction of the valve opening that it would have a non-linear response to regulate water flow, i.e., a small turn of the valve would not create a small amount of water flow. Having the valve half open probably would not give you a 50% flow through the valve. If you want to take some time to adjust it and can see the output as you adjust the valve before attaching it to the fridge, then you could probably get it to the flow you want. But the lack of a linear response would make visual adjustment of the flow necessary, I think.

    A:  Hi, The John Guest 1/4 in. O.D. Polypropylene Push-to-Connect Valve can be used on refrigerator water lines. If you have any more questions you can call tech support at 877-700-4242. (Kind regards,)

    by|Mar 15, 2022

      A:  While the John Guest 1/4 in. O.D. Polypropylene Push-to-Connect Valve can be used as a valve for a fridge water line it is ¼” on both sides and will not reduce the line. Something like the John Guest water line kit may be a more suitable solution to running a water line from an existing stop valve to a refrigerator. https://www.homedepot.com/p/John-Guest-Ice-Maker-Water-Supply-Kit-Universal-80534/315856801

      by|Mar 15, 2022

        A:  No as it is for 1/4” OD poly tube on both sides.

          A:  When the handle is inline with the valve (as in product photo). Perpendicular is closed. This is standard for ball type valves (gas, air, water, etc).

          by|Jun 22, 2022

          A:  For the John Guest 1/4 in. O.D. Polypropylene Push-to-Connect Valve you rotate the handle clockwise to close the valve and counter clockwise to open the valve. The valve is open when the handle is parallel with the tubing.”

            A:  Blue lever has to line up with the plastic lines.

            by|Mar 2, 2022

            A:  Hi, The John Guest 1/4 in. O.D. Polypropylene Push-to-Connect Valve is in the on position when the handle is parallel with the ball valve.

                    Nope!
                    Purchased to modify an Anchor countertop water filter that came with an ugly awkward diverter valve off of the aerator on tr he faucet. Stock, it looked like it belonged in the engine bay of my boat. Installed valve inline with the water feed. Closed, the valve drips water non-stop. Bummer all the way around. Would not buy either one again.

                      OK product, but...
                      I purchased this valve to open / close the water line to a humidifier. It was easy to install, but it started to leak. The reason seems to be the vibrations of the heater that flex the water line, causing the leak. I ended up screwing the line to the AC conduits to minimize the effects of the vibration, and the leak stopped. Probably, using a metal valve would have avoided the trouble.

                      I was hesitant to buy this shark bite because of the negative comments I’ve heard about them. I have a few friends who are plumbers and they have said they had issues with them leaking and they were more expensive. I needed a cutoff valve for the supply line to my ice maker in my refrigerator. The one I had was a “saddle valve” and it was leaking (which they are prone to do) so I didn’t want another one of those. This valve was very easy to install and so far has been doing it’s job. Just make sure you insert the supply line in as far as it will go in the valve to insure it makes a good seal. I think that’s the problem my plumber friends had. They are a little more expensive but they are super easy to install and I believe will hold up better/longer. I installed this valve myself about 2 weeks ago and I would recommend it to others to purchase.

                      Used PVC pipe cutting tool to trim water line then pushed each end into shut off item. Tugged to make sure fitting was tight. Great for ice maker shut off since my new frig will not have icemaker
