    Yes they will - at 1/10th the cost. I removed the refrig filter and replaced it with a plug. I'm happy with the taste of the ice cubes with just the dechlorinated water. Coffee water and drinking water are RO here.

    Ahhh, so still through RO is ideal, despite water pressure woes. Alright, I'll just deal with the lower pressure. I'm not paying for all thr permeate pump business. Haha

    This is exactly what I did after I got tired of buying those crummy $8 Brita filters for the few gallon container. We just manually fill it up and put it in the fridge, but it would be nice not to have to refill the container, lift it, etc. I'm curious how you plumbed the prefilters to feed into your fridge.

    Just installed a quick connect tee in the tube that runs between the ASOV high pressure "in" port and carbon block "out" port

    Im looking at mine now and it looks to be thicker than 1/4” tubing. Probably 3/8”. Is that pretty typical?

    1/4" is typical for RO tubing on these little residential scale systems, but you can find them plumbed with 3/8" as well.

    The tubing that supplies the pressurized water to the fridge has a cloth wrapping aroubd it. That's of no consequence, is it?

    Hmm. Is it insulation to deal with condensation on the tube?

    That was my thought, but it's the cold water supply, no different than what goes into my RO unit, pipes, etc. I can't imagine it's terribly important.
