To look for the duration of copper tubing you shall need,

measure from connection on lower rear that is left of to

water pipeline. Add 7 ft. (2.1 m) to accommodate going fridge for cleansing. utilize 14 in. (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter)

copper tubing. Make sure both ends of copper tubing are cut square.

Employing a grounded drill, drill a 14 in. gap into the water pipe that is cold
