A: I do not believe so. It is designed to slightly compress a plastic line in order to seal, and it does a good job—no leaking. It is also designed to release the plastic line if necessary. But copper isn’t likely to seal and may not be held in place by the gripping “teeth” of the fitting.

This valve has NPT threads and braided lines typically have compression threads.

A: The stainless water line is commonly Compression and not pipe thread. Check with the lines manufacturer to confirm thread type and size.

A: No, this is for Polypropylene tubing. and also requires an adapter to connect to ice maker line.
