Can anyone tell me if there is a reason I shouldn’t use this (1/2" to 3/8", I believe–chrome, not brass?) to attach this to this? The installer said I needed some other kind of connector, one with a “white plastic thing” inside (though I can’t think of a reason for it), but the way he described it I thought it would be easy to find at the hardware store. The lackey at the store was no help, I’m assuming, because it seems entirely possible that the connector I have (the first “this”) is just fine, and to him my installer’s instruction was just daft (I’m hoping this is the case). But since the vast bins bulge with many different gizmos with which I am unfamiliar, seeing as a great deal of my ignorance encompasses matters of plumbing, I thought I’d turn to you all before I just give up and just put it on anyway. Don’t really want to pay a plumber $120 to do what I can do myself.
BTW, I did buy one of those hook-up kits, but I haven’t opened it yet. By the description of the contents and what I can see inside the partially transparent package, there isn’t anything in there that sticks out as being “whoa, that’s what I need!” Plus, if I don’t need all that crap, I’d just as soon take the kit back.
As an aside, I am a little suspicious of installers. They often seem to claim they can’t complete an installation for some reason or another. A similar thing happened with the new fridge (as yet uninstalled), on the same day, with different installers, but that will be a subject for a different thread.
Thanks for any help, and I’ll supply extra info as needed.
