Required Tools for this Project

Have the necessary tools for this DIY project lined up before you start—you’ll save time and frustration.

    • Tape measure
    • Soldering torch
    • Tube cutter

You may also need a drill and a 1/2-in. bit if you need to run the water line through cabinets, as shown here.

Required Materials for this Project

Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready ahead of time. Here's a list.

    • 1/4-in. flexible copper tubing
    • 1/2-in. copper pipe
    • Copper tee
    • Water supply stop valve

If your pipes are steel or plastic, use that material for the tee instead of copper.
