Top Fridge Water Line Installation related questions

In most cases, no. Besides their years of experience and skills, your hired plumber can come fully prepared and equipped to install your fridge water line. What you have to provide are the fridge itself and all the materials for the installation. But if you don’t have all the needed materials, some tradies may offer to buy them for you at an additional fee. 

The time it takes can vary, and it depends on the complexity of the job. A simple installation can take at least two to two-and-a-half hours, but this may take longer in some cases. If your tradesman has to avoid drilling through vents, pipes, or wires when mapping out and connecting the new fridge water line, expect the job to take an hour more. It shouldn’t take more than one afternoon to connect a new water line to one refrigerator. 

Yes! If you offer services like this but have your hands full, hire a Tasker to handle the jobs you’d otherwise turn down. You can find the best Taskers with a post, so be sure to provide all the crucial information about the job, the sort of skills you need, and the level of performance you expect. Interested Taskers with the experience to match will approach you with a quote, and then you can negotiate from there. 

Absolutely. Some new refrigerator models on the market come with a water line only as an added feature. You don’t lose any functionality of your fridge if you don’t connect it to a water line. The only drawback is that you miss out on getting ice or cold filtered water straight from the fridge. You can have a fridge water line installed later, then use ice cube trays and a water purifier in the meantime.   

You can use copper pipes, but many tradesmen recommend plastic, but with brass retaining nuts and sleeves. Plastic pipe is more pliable and lessens the risk of crimping or leaking, and isn’t prone to corrosion which can lead to problems and costly repairs later. Another option is a stainless steel pipe which is likewise flexible and less prone to corrosion. The only problem with stainless steel piping is that it can cost double the price of copper. 

While it’s generally safe to use your refrigerator’s ice maker and water dispenser, we recommend you don’t drink the first few litres from the water dispenser or the first two batches of ice. There may be a strange taste from the new pipes and fresh solder. Let your new fridge water connection equalise the water pressure and flush out gallons of water to eliminate impurities or contaminants in the new pipes before drinking the water or using the ice.

What do fridge water line installation services include?

Fridge water line installation services include all the activities necessary for installing a cold water line connection to your fridge. This water line provides water supply for your fridge’s built-in ice maker as well as for its filtered water dispenser if there’s any. Tasks include inspecting the water line, planning the pipe route, draining water pipes, then making the connections. 

Water line inspection

Your tradesman begins the service by making a thorough visual inspection of your water lines. They’ll start by finding the cold water pipes closest to your fridge, usually in your kitchen sink, and measure the distance between them to determine the length of pipe needed for the new fridge water line.

Fridge water line planning

After finding the nearest cold water pipe to the fridge and getting the appropriate measurements, your tradie can proceed with planning the line installation. Using copper tubing, saddle valves, tee fittings, and other materials, your water supply line is then carefully prepared before installation. Your tradie may drill holes through the kitchen floor to access the basement, or drill a hole to spool the piping through a kitchen cabinet. They can map out the shortest, most efficient route for the fridge water line–one that doesn’t extend too far to minimise the risk of pipe leaks or crimps. 

Pipe draining

Before connecting the pipes to the water line and the refrigerator, your tradesman shuts off the main water valve, then empties the pipes. They can place buckets to catch the water from the supply tubing then pour the water onto your drains or your houseplants. While on the subject of pipes, why not have an expert install a well-placed drainage system to your home? Whether it’s replacing downpipes or installing new gutters, Taskers can take care of all your plumbing needs.

Making connections

With the water shut off and pipes emptied, your fridge water line installer proceeds to connect the new fridge water line. They’ll start by cutting into the cold water pipe, then fitting the new tee adapter and shutoff valve. Note that before they connect any pipes, the insides of the pipes must be deburred. Your tradesman solders the tee adapter and shutoff valve in place, then lets the solder cure. After the soldering has set, they’ll connect the new pipe to the refrigerator’s plastic tubing. Lastly, your tradie installs the pipes with the appropriate retainer nuts, sleeves, and ferrules.

Water line testing

Your tradie does one final check to look for leaks or pressure variations and to make sure that each pipe is tightly fastened. Once they’re confident that the connection is complete, they’ll turn on the water valve to test for any leaking refrigerator water. If any problems arise, your plumber shuts off the valves then applies the right fixes. Your tradie repeats this process until your new fridge water line works without any flaws. Some tradies may offer to clean up the worksite, but in case you want a separate service for this, you can always hire a Tasker to do a general cleaning of your property.

1. I have a water line connection already in the wall. 2. I need a water line running from the wall connection to the back of the fridge. 3. Because of where the fridge is located (it doesn’t fit near the fridge space), the water line will have to be visible/ stuck to the ceiling and run along the ceiling to the fridge. 4. The distance is approx. 4m from the wall connection to the fridge.

Super efficient. Giovanni came up with an easier solution than I had planned. I highly recommend his services and would definitely hire him again.
