How to prepare for your refrigerator waterline installation service

If you do not currently have a water source where the refrigerator will be placed, we can provide one. To provide a water source, we must:

  • Have access to a local water source (your sink) by routing the waterline hose through neighbouring cabinetry; or
  • Drop the waterline below the floor to access a water source in the kitchen if the sink is detached from the cabinetry neighbouring the refrigerator. The room below the kitchen must be in an unfinished state to do this. 

Ensure you have all the required parts. Parts are not included with this service.

Have your permits for plumbing, electrical and structural modifications ready. Check your city bylaws for required permits.

Ensure any necessary electrical or plumbing modifications are done before we arrive.

Prepare the area by removing any cabinetry to accommodate removing your old refrigerator or installing your new one.
