If I stack a model # 53213 extension on top of a #53212 box what's the height of the combined assembly -- i.e. how deep do they nest?

I have a need for an 18" deep valve box combination. In another part of my project I have a couple of valve boxes of a differrent brand which stack bottom to bottom. Howerver for this next part of my project I need to have the wide end of the box fit right next to the bottom end of the previous assembly. This will only work if your Orbit model #53212 box can be put into the hole wide end down, and then have the ability for its narrower top end to mate with the bottom of your Orbit #53213 extension to extend the height of the combination to at least 18 inches. Will this work with the two products mentioned -- ie Orbit models #53212 box with extension #53213? Is there a lip on one or both of these products which keeps the extension -- ie Orbit #53213 -- from nesting too deeply on the bottom box -- ie Orbit #53212?

I am now going to answer my own question because I just got back from Home Depot and believe I have discovered a better combination of boxes in which one box serves as an extension for the one that is under it.

I am now going to answer my own question because I just got back from Home Depot and believe I have discovered a better combination of boxes in which one box serves as an extension for the one that is under it. When I got to Home Depot, I found that the extension -- Model #53213 -- nested too deeply on box model #53212. Once nested, the combination provided a combined height of only15" rather than the advertised 18" height. There were no ridges on either box to provide a solid resting platform for the extension.
-However!!!!! I discovered that the Jumbo box model #53214, which was on the shelf right next to model #53212 can be made to provide an excellent base for the model 53213 extension, which is supposed to mate with model #53212, but doesn't provide adequate height when so nested with #53212. With just a moderate amount of squeezing pressure on the long bottom edges of box model #53213, it will pop into the top recess of box model 53214 into which the cover normally fits and will rest snugly on the inner lip of that recess. This combination DOES provide a good solid 18 inches of height -- almost exactly -- for the combination, and a much more solid foundation for the model 53213 extension. It is somewhat more expensive than the other combination but worth it because it works well. I ended up buying 1 model 53214 as my base and 1 model 53213 as extension to that base. This combination does what I need.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good place to install sprinkler vaves I use these boxes to put several sprinkler valves below ground. Make sure you cover the pipes and valves with insulation for the winter. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raymond I purchased this to replace a smaller one, and what a difference. I've purchased this kind of box before for my other rental home, and they last forever. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 12 Inch Standard Extenion Valve Box I liked the construction of the Valve Box except that the one I picked up at the store was missing the brass fixture to secure the lid in place. I had already made a couple of trips to Home Depot that day so figured that I would report it the next time I went. That never happened. Thus I only gave the product a 4 star rating. The locks should be attached to the lids of each box. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Water Valve Cover The 12-inch standard extension valve box makes a strong and safe cover for our outdoor water valve. Its sturdy construction lowers the risk of anyone falling into the hole around the water valve. August 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I bought this box for a rental unit. Tough and durable. I was pleased with the product. April 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good It was exactly as it appeared online and was a perfect fit for what I needed March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12" Valve Box This box is made of tough plastic and is a good value. There is a threaded brass insert which allows you to secure the lid if you have the proper bolt. It would be nice if this were provided but it's not so stop by the hardware section and pick up a stainless steel bolt before you leave the store. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for buried sprinkler valves My sprinkler valves are buried underground. When I needed to replace the solenoids recently I had to dig around to find them and then excavate all around them to get at all the wiring. Well, that was one time too many! Went to Home Depot and found this box that just fits perfectly over the four valves. It gives easy access, is very sturdy, the lid will stay on unless you take it off, and it actually looks good too. I am very pleased and definitely recommend you use one of these. June 24, 2014
