Ice maker hookup hose - Dometic Eskimo Ice Remote Ice Crushing System Installation.


Existing: 1/2" galv.

I'll run: 1/2 or 3/4 PEX off of that to feed faucet, ice maker, hose bib.

What I'd prefer is put a tee valve (if such a thing exists) on the horizontal portion of that new branch which would be my shutoff for the icemaker AND the right angle transition to turn up and accept the 1/4" icemaker connection. If that type of right angle, three way valve doesn't exist, then I'd use just a PEX tee fitting to turn up, then need to install a straight valve in the now vertical portion of PEX. This valve would then accept the 1/4" hookup for the icemaker.

The above may not be possible if such fittings don't exist. If not, I could put a simple ball valve in line with the 1/2" horizontal, before the tee for the vertical part to the icemaker. But this vertical part would still need some kind of fitting that is 1/2" PEX one end and 1/4" male on the other end. It's THAT, final fitting that I'm wondering about.

These 1/4" hookup kits are pretty common, right? What is the common fitting that they hook to?

Using care when selecting a Columbus plumber is very important and can make the difference in whether your outcome is positive or a complete disaster. You aren’t going to have time to be selective if your hot water tank has flooded your basement. If you wait for a plumbing emergency your first instinct will probably be to call the first plumber you see listed in the yellow pages and seriously if time is of the essence you may have no other choice. That’s why it’s a good idea to establish contact with a good Columbus plumber before you actually need one.
