We renovated our laundry room area and this flush mounted box enabled use to place our washer and dryer flush against the wall giving us the freedom to put a countertop over them. The ease of installation with the hydro pex fittings purchased on the site was so simple. The price was incomparably less than those large home centers.

Appears to be the lowest cost solution to install a washer box. Plastic housing seems to be cheap and brittle, but works fine. 1/4 turn ball valves are decent, however they are slightly difficult to turn and will spin in the box, unless torqued tightly to the aforementioned cheap box (which is a concern).

Recommended for cost savings only. Would not install in a higher end project.

Great product

By Charles the Plumber

from Eastern CT

Comments about Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" PEX Valve:

Used this on my latest repipe job. The valves are great quality and look nice too (I find that clients tend to really like blue and red color coding when it comes to their plumbing.)The box isn't as bad as people are making it out to be, it's the same quality as every other washing machine box I've ever used, and better than the ones that come standard in a lot of houses. The valves mount very securly to the box.

Only gave 4 stars because of the way they're packaged; both valves are put loose in a plastic bag together, which is really stupid because they are heavy brass valves, they knock against eachother and chip the paint off the handles during shipping. Clients spending thousands on a full repipe don't want chipped handles on their valves. This could also damage the barbs on the pex connection points, causing leaks. They need to be packaged better.

      A 1/2 drill bit or a hole saw bit and drill out the holes is the easiest and quickest way.

      A:

      The box 7" x 9" wide, plus a few mm on each side for slots for the mounting tabs. I still haven't figured out how it is supposed to mount. The outer dimensions of the finish frame are about 8-1/2 x 10-5/8.

  • Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" PEX Valve

    Q:

    When you say the box is designed to fit 1.5" PVC, are you referring to the drain? What connectors (part number & brand) do I buy to go from 1/2" PEX tubig to the valves?
    Asked on 2/22/2012 by Anonymous from Dallas, TX

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The drain is 1.5" PVC. The valves accept 1/2" PEX using a crimp or clamp connection. You would need a crimping or clamping tool, along with the corresponding 1/2" rings in order to make the fitting.
