comment How do I connect a polyethylene water supply line to my refrigerator?
Thanks Philip. I will make a note in my post that the Ander-Lign fitting I'm referring to is not the one in my picture to avoid confusion by others

For the Ander-Lign fitting, do you know if I use it with a plastic sleeve (as shown in my picture above), or does the built-in "sleeve-looking item" fulfill this purpose?

comment How to tighten/fix ice-maker's drainage tube connector?
In addition to UNECS's good suggestion, if re-cutting the line (to fix scratch issue) nor adjusting the clamp fitting fix the issue, replacing the connector is an additional quick fix. Watts also makes these (watts.com/pages/_products_details.asp?pid=6681), and they sell at most hardware stores.

comment Can I use the exposed water line on a Kenmore refrigerator to bypass the internal filter for incoming water supply?
In the past, I had issues w/ a plastic 1/4" line to a different fridge leaking, which could have been due to me not using the compression fitting correctly. Also, I'm renting this place, so eventually I'll disconnect my RO filter. Based on everyone's feedback though, I'll connect my RO to the input valve. :) thanks!

+1 I can attest to the car paint damage, having left my car unwashed for a while, only to find the clear coat was damaged

comment Do they make AC power meters that measures average, min and max watts used?
@Tester101 - I'm looking to track a single appliance (a computer), and want to see max and average usage over different workloads, but won't always have access to the machine, so leaning away from the meters that report just the current usage. Regarding the device in the related question, yes, I would prefer a cheaper device. I don't need the ability to connect to a computer, so figured there might be a device that just did min/max/average over life of it being plugged in (similar to how some $20 digital thermometers work)
