Water to plumbed in fridge

Postby Sandtree » Wed Jul 01, 2020 5:51 pm

We have a purpose built split level flat with concrete floors and vast voids in the ceiling. All our water supply is clustered in the middle/left of the flat (kitchen, wc & en suit).

Our fridge and freezer are on the opposite side of the kitchen (and its door) and both ‘need’ their own input (theyre about to be built into units). Whats the normal options here? Two pipes around the door doesnt sound pretty. The sink is on an internal wall so could they go up inside there, across the ceiling void and down the side wall behind the units (this is a structural wall with dot & dab plasterboard)?

Someone more experienced to me may have more sensible suggestions.

I used micro bore pipe, the fridge did not use much water and can't remember if 8, 10, or 12 mm now, new fridge does not have cooled water, and today most are not plumbed in.
