Re: Refrigerator water connection - saddle valve alternative

I've been using something like that for at least 5 years, on both hot and cold lines under the kitchen sink. I too am no fan of saddle valves.

Cold goes to faucet and fridge, hot goes to dishwasher and faucet.

But I agree with some of the others - these should not need anything like dope or tape - at the very most, I'd only use teflon tape , and then only if the compression fittings are not doing their job.
