We had an ice maker in Pcola, which was super convenient. But, because the space was already plumbed for an ice maker, installation was a breeze when we bought a new fridge there. In fact, I think the guys from Sears hooked it up as part of the delivery. Here, we weren't so lucky. No ice maker plumbing to the fridge. And I have to admit that we never had an ice maker at home in Maine, so I have no clue what it takes to "install" an ice maker. Not too much apparently.
S's dad explained that there's some nifty contraption that pierces a cold water line, threads into the fridge's ice maker and makes it all happen like magic. Without any plumbing work. What?!? Yes, so simple/. So this morning after making a quick Depot run on our behalf, S's dad showed up with said nifty contraption. Twenty minutes or so later the contraption was threaded through a hole in the floor and connected to a cold water line in the basement.
How cool is that? Now we have overly chlorinated ice to soak in our overly chlorinated water. Yum!
