I recently purchased a new refrigerator and I need to have a water
line installed and hooked up to the ice maker. Can anyone recommend a
quality plumber in the Leominster, MA area? I tried calling my local
Sears but I was told that they recently canceled their contracts with
their plumbers and other appliance maintenance people. They were also
unwilling to personally recommend anyone (corporate policy). I'm new
to the area I do not know who to trust to do the job well. Any help
would be appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for the suggestion but this type of plumbing work isn't my
thing. I know what I'm good at and what I'm not. This isn't a job I'm
comfortable taking on (that is to say "what's a vampire tap valve and
compression fittings?"). Also, I just moved into the house and have a
lot of other things to do. Sadly, I wouldn't have the time to educate
myself slowly and make sure it got done right. If anyone knows of a
good plumber in the area that would be best for this situation.
I don't know about poly, but I installed my own line with copper tubing.
My only other plumbing experience has been changing faucet washers and
unclogging drains :o)
Be sure, whatever tubing you use, to leave a coil behind the fridge so
you have plenty extra to pull the fridge out for cleaning.
Pretty small job for a plumber, you may have a hard time getting one to come
out. OTOH, a good handyman can do a simple job like that. Look in the
local shoppers paper that every town usually has. Or, if you are a good
looking babe, just ask the old guy next door and he'll be glad to do it for
Just ask everyone you meet in your regular daily activities.
Installing a water hookup is relatively easy thing to do. There's
got to be someone out there who has done a couple of them.
I don't trust Sears for anything, sorry.
