I just finished remodeling my Kitchen. I'm now installing a new Fridge that has an Ice maker. The store that my wife bought the fridge from sold her a kit to install the Ice maker. It includes a clamp type item that punctures the water line. I don't know how this works, but was wondering if I should just run PVC to the Fridge? Then put a shut off in and attach the water line using copper tubing? Any help would be appreciated since I need to Do this tonight!

Your way is better. Remember to leave enough flexible tubing to allow the frig to be moved in and out. You might want to use the plastic tube that came with the kit for the connection from your new shutoff to the frig. It's more flexible than copper. Your choice.

The little needle valve that comes with the kit punctures the water pipe, then seals it with rubber. If you should use one of those, don't puncture the pipe on the bottom as this allows any sediment in the pipe to "fall" into the ice maker line.

Thanks for the input. It worked like a charm.
