Hello to all once again.
Still in the process of remodeling kitchen.
So far, so good. Everything I have done myself.
Now I face the dreaded "plumbing" question.
Here is the situation. And was trying to decide if this is a project
I can tackle on my own, or leaving for a pro.
We are buying our first refrigerator with an ice and water dispenser
and maker. It will be a counter depth model, if this has any meaning to the
Basically, I have a galley kitchen, with the sink being at the top
right of kitchen, and the fridge will be a the bottom left, if looking birds
eye view, of the rectangle.
My sink right now, is a standard stainless sink, with one faucet
coming out, with one handle. Its an extendable handle to 55 inches. The one
handle, controls water temp, pressure, regular or spray.
Question, I have, is how difficult and safe would it for me, to
attach the ice/water from sink to fridge.
To cross the span of the kitchen, I will need to make whole in bottom
cabinet, and run the hose underneath the (I dont know what you call it, the
metal runner that separates the kitchen tile, from the dining room
carpeting. Once it spans this, I can run it against bottom of wall without
it beeing seen?
Any comments on difficulty, for a non plumber?
Also, I assume this hose will be under constant pressure. So it it
springs a hole, it will leak out and flood?
Looking forward to any information that you can impart with me.
This is last thing, for the kitchen to be finished.
Since this was my first attempt, to do a major remodeling myself, all
I can tell you, is allow 50 percent more cash then planned, and four times
as much time. LOL
Thank goodness for retirement, as I could never have the time when I
was working. :)
Much regards to all.
