Postby patrick.greer » Wed Aug 01, 2007 7:06 am

I need to connect a hose to my fridge/freezer icemaker. I cant find one long enough. where can I buy 3/4 inch to 3/4 inch male connectors for inlet hoses, or where can I find a 20 foot 3/4 inch inlet hose?

american style fridges and ice makers, are normally plumbed in using 15mm pipe from the mains cold water supply,

why can't you run 15mm copper pipe, then only have 1 metre of hose ?
or no hose at all ?

Go to the tools store and click through in the plumbing section. All the speedfit fittings are there as well as every other type of fitting you will need.
