Although not evident by the picture, the ends of the tube have barbs / flares so the nuts don't fall off - it screws on to the standard fittings. This was a relief as I was not sure until I received it.
Like other PEX tubing, it is very stiff and wants to roll back into a circle. If you install this make sure you have some way of securing it to the wall / cabinet as it will make installation easier.
On another note, PEX is sensitive to UV light so it must not see direct sunlight or even florescent lights so I am told as it can develop leaks.
Water tastes fine and there are no leaks after several months so 5 stars for this one.
I am writing this review to tell you it was worth every penny, and then some. Here's why:
1. The ends are already set up with the right parts, including plastic compression part. No loose parts to chase around, totally user friendly. This may seem trivial but if you are contorted behind a refrigerator and a part slips away from your reach, it suddenly has greater meaning.
2. The PEX tubing handles better than poly. By that I mean... if you draw it through your fingers to straighten it, it pretty much stays straight, where the poly will instantly recoil. And, at the same time, the PEX that you leave coiled coils nicely, which is a nice thing when you are pushing the refrigerator back into position. Also, the PEX is a more durable product in general.
If your time is worth any money at all, this is definitely the way to go.
This one works, PERIOD!!
The compression fittings are permanently attached to the line so you cannot cut the line to length.
Also both ends are female compression fittings but many refrigerator connections are also female so if you have that set up you will need a male male compression fitting to connect the line.
Also I had to try two different 1/4 inch fittings to connect the line to my water supply which had been installed earlier by a water filter company. The fitting that was left for the ice maker connection was a 1/4 inch push in but as mentioned above this liine has the fittings permanently attached. I found that connecting the brass fittings to plastic 1/4 inch fittings took some experimentation to find a corresponding 1/4 inch male fitting in vinyl that would work with the existing 1/4 inch PEX and the brass fittings on the line.
In short if you are experienced this line works well. If you a less experienced DIY type just make sure you have the correct fittings at both ends of your run before buying this line.

Does what it is supposed to do. The only problem is that it can get crinkled or pinched pretty badly to a point that it can crack so be very careful in using it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by rahpat
