Putting Refridgerator over hardwood floor-- water line?
Would really appreciate some opinions on this--
We are replacing a fridge in a kitchen that has newly finished wood floors. Our current fridge has a copper water line running to it for water/ice maker. It used to have a nylon line, which broke once.
I am very concerned that having this extra water line increases the risk of a burst pipe or leak, leading to wood floor damage. Even though the line is copper, I feel like the fridge-side of the plumbing is still plastic and could crack.
Are there any refrigerators on the market that have well-constructed metal lines for the water and ice maker?
We really do like the water tap on the fridge, so we are stuck with a tough decision here. Is it worth the risk?
