    A note about the HD ice maker kit (for hooking up an RO unit)

    The valve that comes in the bag is OPEN when you get it. CLOSE this before you ask your wife to watch for leaks and go open the main tap. :b2:

    the funniest part of it is that i KNEW it was open but for some reason forgot to close it, even funnier (for me) would have been seeing the look on my wife's face, unfortunantly the main shutoff is in another room
