getting rid of a saddle valve
I just moved into this house and there is a saddle valve beneath the sink which goes to where the refrigerator for the ice box etc. I am not going to have a refrigerator with an ice box or water dispenser, so I want to get rid of the copper tube that is there and seal off the saddle valve. Right now, I put a compression cap on the end of the saddle valve. Is this the best way? Can I take off the saddle valve and somehow patch the hole it made in the copper pipe? Or would I be stuck replacing the entire pipe now that it has been punctured by a saddle valve? Thanks for any help/suggestions!
