I went to spec out the install of the subzero that I have coming and
realized that the guy that ran my icemaker feed ran it from a branch line
that originates somewhere on the lower level of the house off a bathroom.
Why did he not run it from under the kitchen sink so that I can run a filter
at the kitchen sink and to feed the frig if I so choose. Because he was an
idiot :-). So, now I am relegated to running some sort of 1/4" icemaker
line around 12 feet of kitchen through cabinets. Also, he cut all of the
angle stops under the sink back to the wall and installed trim rings, so I
don't even have a stubout long enough to tap a saddle valve into. What I do
have is an icemaker connection inset into the wall behind the frig that taps
into a line coming from downstairs! What do I do? Is there such a thing as
a double headed angle stop or an angle stop with a 1/4" connection coming
out of it so I can tap a line from it under the kitchen sink? I imagine
that I can run braided stainless steel 1/4" icemaker line through the
cabinets and thread them togther with brass couplers. I don't know if just
running neoprene line would work? There is a 30" run behind a viking stove
where the line would have to be exposed. Would the heat of the stove damage
it? I could forget the filter and just put tap water into the icemaker but
what a waste. The whole point of a high end frig is for performance and
clean purified water and ice.
Any help would be appreciated. :-)
