Plumber Pearcedale: Middle Road New Fridge Point

Have you purchased a new fridge lately and then unpacked it and realized that you needed a water point to connect to your new plumbings products?

Orbit Plumbing can help you. We install fridge points all the time and we know the exact requirements needed so you are always covered by insurance no matter what could happen in the future. One of these requirements is that your fridge point needs a 350kpa pressure limiting valve. Almost all houses should have a 500kpa pressure limiting valve at the water meter as these are the regulations set by the Victorian Building Authority. If you do not have your pressure further reduced down to 350kpa at the fridge point there is a very good possibility that your insurance will not cover you should there ever be a flood as the result of the fridge point.

The small 6mm fridge hoses and there fittings are not designed for high pressure environments so they need to be reduced.

At this job Orbit Plumbing sent our Langwarrin Plumber with our Langwarrin South Plumber out to install the new water point for our Pearcedale clients new fridge. We gained access under the house which made this job much easier than the traditional pipe down the wall act. After connecting the fridge we ran a good 20 liters through the fridge just to make sure the water was coming out clean. After a fridge point installation you can have a small amount of murky water to begin with. This is just that new piping has been installed and it needs to be cleaned through properly first.
