Does your fridge freezer require plumbing? Your fridge or freezer will state whether it requires plumbing into the water supply in the instruction manual. The CDA PC71 American style fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser does require connecting to the water supply.
How long are fridge water lines?
The other notable difference is the length of tubing as a fridge supply can be 10 to 25 depending on where you are connecting from where a toilet or sinks are usually 12” or so. Braided tubing is fitted at both ends with the proper fittings, so all you have to do is tighten the line to your connections.
