I'm going to finally connect the refrigerator's ice maker to water. Because the water line will come from the basement (and not from a kitchen cabinet), I have bought this connection box to install in the wall behind the fridge (Data sheet):

Ice maker connection box

But how high up on the wall should I put the box? Is there a standard height?

    I think most fridges have their connections down low, so I'd probably put it about the same height as the receptacles in the house (12-16" to the top). Not sure if there's a standard height. If the receptacle for the fridge is down low, I'd probably line it up with that. You'll not usually see it, but when the fridge is pulled out it will look nice and uniform. – Tester101 Jan 1 '15 at 15:11

    I ended up putting it next to the receptacle, which was about counter height. It looks neat, and the helps keep the water line from being run over when the fridge is pushed into its nook. – Vebjorn Ljosa Jan 4 '15 at 5:02
