Water dispenser has always been very slow. Any ideas to make flow better?
Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

Your problem will be the saddle valve, These have a very small diameter hole and are what cause the flow to be very slow, I stopped using them some time ago, Your best bet is to install a compression gate valve, this will increase the flow considerably. If the refrigerator has a old filter fitted also replace this after the gate valve has been installed.
