I have a side by side whirlpool freezer and the plastic line

Resolved Question:

I have a side by side whirlpool freezer and the plastic line to the inlet valve for the ice maker will dry and become brittle and break, is there a permanent fix or solution to prevent this from happening. I have tried a copper line but the plastic on the valve seems worn to connect a solid line. It stays loose with compression fitting.

Copper is about the only other choice.
