Huh? They ran the line to our refrigerator just the same as if it have been from the cold water line under the sink like any other house I've ever been in. It's just a 1/4" line and it's always been run around the back of the cabinets in the three houses I've had it in. The RO system comes with a fridge hook up that comes off the line out of the storage tank (it may require a request for it when you order the system, I don't remember).

That may be true Rick, but my old home had no water connection behind the refrigerator at all.

This was an interesting conversation...http://www.city-data.com/forum/phoen...-run-your.html

This was an interesting conversation...Does your RO system run to your refrigerator? (new house, construction) - Phoenix area - Arizona (AZ) - City-Data Forum
Ours has never had anything behind the fridge either. They run the tube from the cold water pipe under the kitchen sink.

Is the tube visible in your kitchen?

So yeah everyone, Mr.K and I have concluded that we will have "whole house RO system", but this an entirely different topic, I'll start a separate thread for this one...

I forgot our checkbook, so we sign the contract tomorrow and then the broker said she's trusting us to mail her the check for the down... How cool is that?

Our DF's are over the moon that we're going to be neighbors! We all went to have pizza at our favorite joint up here and Mr.DF told the pizzeria owner (who calls my husband "Philly" every time we walk in) that we're moving here and he said, "I knew it! I knew you'd move here, I told you that years ago!"
Did I say that everyone is very excited?

I'm so excited for you Kgirl!! It will be great to be where you want with neighbors of your choice. That alone makes a house a home. If you have arranged for a whole house RO system you have it nailed from the get go, and have sure done your homework!
