Installation Services

 

The installation of plumbing for an icemaker can be an intricate process that involves the connection of new mechanisms to existing piping and water lines.  Most icemakers come with plumbing instructions for those do it yourselfers, but we highly recommend that you have a licensed master plumber like GPS Plumbing do the installation.  Our services ensure the icemaker plumbing:

 

  • Conforms to all applicable local codes and regulations
  • Preserves the sanitary and functional condition of the water supply system

 

Our installation services include, but are not limited to the following:

 

  • Determining the best way for the water supply line to run from the cold water supply source to the refrigerator
  • Installing a ¼ turn brass body shut off valve at the water supply source to allow for maximum water flow to the appliance and too help ensure years of leak free operation (Note: we do not prefer to use or install self-piercing saddle tap type valves that are prone to leaking.  They can cause severe property damage when the saddle tap leaks)
  • Running the water supply line (copper/braided steel to help ensure leak free operation)
  • Plumbing water supply line with enough slack at the refrigerator to enable the refrigerator to be moved in and out without kinking
  • Connecting the water supply line to the shut off valve and refrigerator
  • Opening the cold water shut off valve
  • Checking all connections and water supply line for leaks
  • Cleaning the work area

 

Our services extend to most if not all standalone icemaker models, types, and brands.

 

Repair Services

 

Icemaker plumbing mostly goes unnoticed and unmonitored until a leak occurs.  Leaking icemaker plumbing can:

 

  • Cause significant damage to your property
  • Lead to mold and mildew growth and buildup
  • Create an unhealthy and unsanitary kitchen and home environment

 

If you notice water around the refrigerator or water source, you may have an icemaker-plumbing problem that requires immediate attention.  GPS Plumbing will find the leak, fix the leak, and fix it fast.
