Two years ago we went through a major kitchen / linving area remodel. When the the water line for the refridgerator ice maker was plumbed in the plumber used a plastic water line that came off of our under the sink mount Multi-pure water filter. Towards the end of the remodel, the line started leaking and the general contractor called the plumber back and he fixed the problem.
Then last August / September (a year after the remodel) the water line leaked again. This time I fixed it. The water line held until two weeks ago when it developed a pin hole size water leak just on the supply side of the compression fitting. I repaired it . Then again today the supply water line sprouted another pin hole water leak one to two inches up from the compression fitting.
I am gathering that plastic supply hoses are vulnerable to pin hole leaks. Does anyone know if there there are plastic lines that have a higher PSI rating than others? If so, can anyone give me any insight or share thier knowledge base. Or should I yank the plastic out and replace it with copper – even with the line be connected to my non- reverse osmosis Multi-pure water filter?
Thanks ahead of time for the great answers that I know that I will receive. (This might be a great article for FH magazine…whatcha think???)
