    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on having a Filtrete water filter run to the cold water tap AND a refrigerator's ice maker...Filtrete doesn't have a part number to do this, but I'm open to alternative vendors for it, or if the recommendation is "don't" that is fine too. Thanks in advance!

    I had an inline filter on our refrigerator in our last house. The filter had connections on it for standard plumbing hoses like you'd use for a faucet hook-up. I don't recall the brand or actual sizes. Our current fridge has a built-filter.

    Ice maker filters typically have limited gallons which are less than what you would expect from a cold water tap, somewhere in the 200-300 gallons before replacement.
