I have a new GE fridge which came with an Ice Maker. I live in an apartment so I can't do anything drastic. My plan is to use the reinforced PVC tubing kit with Saddle valve, along with a filter, and run the tubing from underneath the sink through an unused cabinet, to the back of the fridge.

I'm not sure whether I should use the horizontal copper line running to the dishwasher or the vertical flex line running to the faucet. Will the saddle valve work on the flex? Is the water in the copper line to the dishwasher a hot water line? Obviously I'm a little new to this but it seemed easy enough...

** plan to use the reinforced PVC tubing kit with Saddle valve **

I would suggest *copper* tubing and be sure to only use a *drill type* saddle valve (if not a regular plumbing valve) and NOT a 'self piercing' saddle valve.

** Will the saddle valve work on the flex? **

Probably not, check with a plumber.

** Is the line to the dishwasher a hot water line? **

Yes, it is hot. You do not want to connect your icemaker to it.

You may need to do a bit more plumbing and maybe connect a tee and a regular plumbing valve where the end of the flexible line for the faucet attaches but check with a plumber for his advice?
