Featured Products

Quadtro

Patented twist-n-lock valves allow the user to position the valves to the left, right or on either side of the drain, enabling greater flexibility on the job. A quarter turn test plug eliminates the need for knock-out caps that can fall down the drain.

Centro II

The Centro II washing machine box is a cost-effective solution for center drain washing machine installations. It's constructed of durable PVC and comes with two side straps and drywall trim plate to complete your project.

I2K

Its compact size makes it easy to keep your ice maker supply valve out of sight. The I2K features pre-loaded nail brackets that can be secured directly to the stud without straps.

MODA

MODA washing machine outlet boxes can be installed between 2 studs or straddling the stud, allowing more flexibility for the water line and drain positioning. Its two-piece valve can be replaced from the top without the need to cut out dry-wall.

Washer Box Selection Tips


Determine Your Supply Connection

Common water supply pipes are PEX Copper, and CPVC. Specific valve fittings are required for each to make a successful connection. Oatey offers supply boxes with each of these connection fittings.


Find The Position of the Supply and Drain Pipes

To help determine which washer box to use, check the location of the drain pipe relative to the hot and cold water supply. Oatey's Quadtro and MODA models allow for any configuration you may encounter, while the Centro aligns with center drain pipes only.


Include Hammer Arrestors

Water hammer arrestors absorb the impact of fast opening and closing valves in the plumbing system and are recommended to extend the life of your system. Oatey supply boxes are available with and without water hammer arrestors.

I bought this item because I liked the way it brought all 3 plumbing functions of a washing machine into one recessed-in-the-wall box. While it does what it has to do (two quarter-turn valves, one drain line), the flimsy plastic box needs help to prevent it from flapping in the wall once mounted. Here''s what I mean:

The box itself is only 9" wide, and uses very thin (under 1/8" thick) plastic nailing flanges that you can see in the picture of the product. These flanges are VERY flexible, although I doubt they''ll easily break under load. Assuming you mount the box to a pair of 2x4 wall studs on 16" centers, then there will be 14.5" - 9" = 5.5" of span distance on these flimsy flanges. The result is that the entire box easily moves in and out from the wall once mounted. Attaching the water hoses, or the drain line, causes the entire box to twist and turn in the wall, which to me had the feeling of being pretty fragile. I could just see applying a little torque to the water lines and bending the box.

What I did was nail the left side as close to the left wall stud as I could get. I then used Gorilla Glue to glue a scrap of 2x6 to fill the gap on the right side, and then nailed the right side to this 2x6 scrap. This then secured the box tightly against the wall and removed just about all wiggle to it. See my uploaded picture of my arrangement to get an idea of what I am describing.

The second annoying thing about the Oatey box is that the two water valves are mounted deeply (2") in from the front of the box. I mounted the box so that it would be right above my washing machine with the hope that I could use right angle hoses to immediately send the hoses downwards, behind the washing machine. But because of this 2" offset, and the fact that all of the right angle hose connectors that I have found make the right angle turn in under 1.5", then you can''t make such a connection without the hose interfering with the front of the box.

To get around this issue, I bought a Gilmour 1/2-Inch Brass Double Female Hose Connector 5FP7FH fitting, and a matching Nelson Industrial Brass Pipe and Hose Fitting for Female 1/2-Inch NPT to Female Hose, Double Male 50570 fitting, connecting the 1/2" pipe threads together. This combination then attaches to the Oatey hose connectors, extending the hose outlets forward about 1", allowing you to finally attach a right angle hose to the Oatey box and cleanly sending each downwards, not outwards. Of course, you have to do this trick twice, one set of adapters per hose outlet. I also have not managed to find a washer hose pair with right angle connections on each end (only on one end), so I had to buy another brass elbow adapter for this purpose (Camco 22505 90 degree elbow), three adapters per hose! Brass isn''t cheap these days, so these 6 brass pieces more than doubled the cost of my Oatey box project! But what''s a little extra cost when it comes to doing it right?

With these two tricks, the box is securely mounted and I can send attach my Oatey box to my washing machine that sits below it with the hoses heading down, flat against the wall.

I took off one star for the flimsy plastic mounting tabs and another for the deep offset of the water valves that force you to buy a lot of brass extras to connect a right angle hose to the Oatey box.

Narrow 5/16" valves

It kills me that manufacturers don''t specify the construction of their valves and the diameter of clearances. A washing machine (at least some of them-- top loaders) use a LOT of water. Waiting for the tub to fill through a valve like this will take far longer than a typical 1/2" ball valve. Now, there could be a limitation on the washer itself, but I am certainly not going to limit the flow at the valve.

This design for the valves is simply not acceptable for a large appliance. While that might be OK for a 3/8" or 1/4" supply hose to a faucet, it''s not good design for high volume requirements.

I like the concept of an in-wall box to ensure one can maximize their space and keep the washer tight up against the wall, but this all-in-one product fails, and am returning it.

Another concern is the flimsy plastic construction of the hangers. Galvanized steel would have been far superior because it would be both stronger/more durable and thinner. Trying to hang drywall over the comparatively thick plastic mounts (1/16") could lead to bowing of the drywall over the plastic.

I''ll be fabricating my own in-wall box with appropriately-sized valves.

I can definitely agree with what others have said about the flimsy ears, but I was able to work around this easily by toenailing a piece of 2x12 in between the joists behind where this box mounts, and then attaching the box directly to the 2x12. When you do that, it''s very sturdy and tight.

Beyond that, I love that you can bring the water in from either the top or bottom, and that things hold tightly. It will look awesome with the trim ring installed once the drywall is up, but in the meantime it works great.

I was curious about the build quality of the valves, but they seem to be good quality as well. They are 1/2" PEX, but stand up proud of the enclosure far enough that it''s pretty easy to get the PEX crimp rings installed. It''s also nice to be able to shut the water off directly at the washing machine when we leave home, so that we don''t have to worry about the hose splitting and leaking water everywhere.

Overall, would definitely recommend :)

The quarter-turn valves are solid and work great but the the plastic housing is not of the same quality. In particular, the box itself will move some after installation since it''s not secured to the drywall and the side straps don''t completely lock in place. The plastic bezel also doesn''t really lock into the box, so you''ll need to secure it to the box or the drywall or it will pop off. This should probably be 3 stars but the price was decent for quality valves.

Great PEX Washer supply and drain box

I used the Oatey 38532 washer supply & drain box to replace a 20 year old Oately box when I replaced all the old corroded iron pipes in my house with new PEX. The old box had boiler drain type valves that leaked at the stems and would never completely turn off the water. The new 1/4 Turn Brass Ball Valves are a huge improvement. The new system of 1/4 turn-lock with "O" rings works very well to seal up the valves to box bottom. This let me crimp on the PEX to the valves and then lock the valves into the box with just a snap, very simple.
I was happy to find the four stud attachment ears are of the same design and dimensions as the ones on the older box. This made replacement with the new box very easy. The drain on the old box was made for 1-1/2" pipe but the new one is made to fit a 2" pipe, an bushing was needed to fit the old drain.
I recommend this washer supply box, a good product.
