    I'm installing my RO Unit under the sink in the kitchen at the new place. The picture shows the water line attaching to the flexible tubing. The part I am looking for is a T shaped plastic piece that I can install under the flex tubing and above the metal unit. Something like this:

    Now I know the smarta$$ answer is for me to just purchase this guy online. But I don't want to wait a week for shipping. Would a Lowes or HD or OSH have something like this?

    That plastic T in the link is meant for 1/4" RO tubing. If I understand your post, you're looking to tee off the RO/DI input line from your cold water main under the sink, correct?

    If so, you're probably looking at something more like this:

    An Ace Hardware nearby had all the copper parts - it is one of those obsolete hardware stores where you tell the person behind the counter what you need and they fetch it for you, and luckily the staff knew what I was trying to accomplish. Most hardware stores will likely have the components you need. IIRC the blue valve right before the RO/DO input came with my RO/DI system.

    Best of luck!

    *pst, compression fittings don't need Teflon tape if it is a true compression fitting

    For NPT type yes. For things like CGA (common on regulators) then no.

    Ace was missing some stuff, OSH was missing some stuff, so I just went to Lowes. They had everything except the shut off valve. I have a plastic shut off valve attached to the RO unit. Think that will work?

    I don't want to mess with the plumbing untiil I've got everything.
