Question by Dizazter: How do I fix slow water coming out of the Fridge water dispenser and slow ice production?
I installed a water line to the fridge, and the water coming from the water dispenser is very slow and the ice is being made at a very slow rate also. I have the water line coming up from the basement, as the fridge is on the opposite side of the kitchen from the sink.

I suspect the problem is from low water pressure. How do I measure the water pressure, and if I need a pump to increase the water pressure to the fridge, which one do I get, and where do I get one?

Any positive help or ideas are greatly appreciated.
The water filter in the fridge is brand new (as I just connected the water line) and the water pressure from the faucet is fine.

Is the water slow coming out of the sink faucet? If not then it is not the water pressure. The fridge has a water filter built in to it, change it! IF the water at the faucet is low pressure too, then call a plumber, he will give you suggestions for a pump and prices. They can be inexpensive, but make sure you get a pressure reducing/regulating valve! This will let you turn the pressure down so you don’t blow the pipes apart.
