Description for Uponor (Wirsbo) LF5930500

The ProPEX® Lead-free Washing Machine Outlet Box comes with two 1/2" ProPEX hot and cold, color-coded, lead-free valves. The valves may be mounted from the top or bottom. The four support brackets allow for easy mounting between studs. The snap-on frame (included) accommodates up to 1" drywall.

Uponor's lead-free brass transition fittings, valves and wall boxes carry the NSF us-pw-G marking for lead-free compliance to meet state lead-free legislation, and exceed the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act. Now you can combine lead-free brass fittings with Uponor's PEX tubing, EP offering and ProPEX Out-of-the-Wall Support System for a complete lead-free solution from the inlet to the faucet. The new lead-free offerings feature Uponor's unique ProPEX fitting system for strong, durable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

Cheap plastic box, cheap valves. The only reason to purchase this item is the Pro Pex Expansion connection. Find a better option.

Exactly the valves I needed

Comments about ProPEX Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" (LF Brass) Valves:

This kit worked great for a remodel on an existing box. I didn't want to tear out the old box completely and redo the drain, so I was able to screw the provided valves into the top holes on my existing box with just a small drywall cutout above it. I only wish the valves were sold separately (I will toss the new box).

Comments about ProPEX Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" (LF Brass) Valves:

Makes hooking up to PEX A tubing very simple.
No downside.
Might be common knowledge, but the fact that the drain size is 2" PVC is not in any of the literature

I am refinishing my daughter's basement and installed this unit to update her washer connections to today's standards. Easy knockouts, good quality valves, lots of installation options come with this kit regarding position and placement of connections. You can see by my photo the feed lines come from above as an option.

Comments about ProPEX Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" (LF Brass) Valves:

Although the description reads 1/2 Pex fittings my shipment arrived with 3/4 PEX. Not a show stopper in my situation but it is inconvenient.

Overal the product is of good quality. A step above discount house offerings but not trend setting. It will get the job done but if you want a product that reflects innovation this is not it.

  • ProPEX Washing Machine Outlet Box, 1/2" (LF Brass) Valves

    Q:

    does this come with air hammers preinstalled like some other brands and your dishwasher connector for pro pex do?

      A:

      This does not come with air hammers. You really don't need them with Pex. I
      have installed several of these outlets and never heard even a peep of
      water hammer.

      A:

      Does not come with water hammer arrestors , however since you are using pex there will not be the banging associated with water hammer. unless you have household pressure exceeding 60 psi you probably don't need to worry about it.

      A:

      No glue is required. The valves attach to the box via the supplied nuts. The valves have a barbed fitting, which accepts 1/2" pex tubing. You must have an expansion tool, 1/2" collars, and 1/2" pex tubing to make the connection

    Q:

    This says 1/2" but does that mean 1/2" ProPex tubing to 1/2" washing machine hose? My experience is all washing machines use 3/4" standard garden hose threading hookups. What does this have for the threaded end?

      Hiya
      Without looking with a ruler I would say it uses the ¾" hoses for the washing machine. I installed my system without any problems.
      Good luck

      It's a standard washing machine fitting for 1/2 inch propex. My hoses are
      the same on both ends that I attached between the washer and these
      fittings.

      A:

      The threaded coupling for the washer hose is standard size (3/4"). You'll be fine. I installed one of these a couple years ago and hooked up a typical washer hose from Home Depot to it.

      yep it's 1/2 inch PEX to standard washer dryer. Becareful if you have an
      inspection though, this box failed in San Francisco because it has to be a
      metal box to pass code here. No idea what your local code is, here in CA
      they are ridiculous!

      The valves included with this box connect to 1/2" PEX-A grade tubing at the inlets via a ProPEX connection (proper expansion tool required). The outlets have standard 3/4" garden hose thread.

      No--this is a ProPEX fitting.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Pete, I am a beginner with plumbing, but I can tell you that the ProPEX type fitting is unique. It should only be used with the expander tool, expander rings, and PEX-A tubing. Shark Bite fittings look similar to ProPEX but they are not the same. Most hardware stores sell Shark Bite valves, then all you would need is a traditional washing machine outlet box.

      Pete,

      I'm no professional, but after using this product and the sharkbite brand I'd have to say no. The rings on the connection are completely different.
