Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ Easy to install washer hookup
The water lines were all exposed before I did some remodeling. I purchased this because I was going to use the Shark Bite connectors. Very easy to install.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Warning: Check for bulging O-rings and use Teflon tape on the joints
I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing this product. As with many other reviewers I had a massive leak at the box caused by the bulging O-ring in the threads. I removed the damaged O-rings on both valves and used a ton of Teflon tape to stop the leaks after having water blow out all over the place.. After reading more of the reviews, I am petrified that this will not be enough and my new drywall job will have to be opened up again. I love Sharkbite products, but this is not a very good product offering.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by vito poor quality control during manufactering.
Like another reviewer(read reviews just now) my unit also leaked at the valve. We installed unit pressured tested it and no leaks. Finished off the wall. During the first wash water started to spray out the bottom of the valve. No choice, opened up wall to gain access. water would leak out of the valve were an "O" ring was sticking out. We took valve apart to find the "O" ring had been pinched between the threads during the manufacturing process. Tried several times to reseat the "O" ring with no luck. Went back to Home depot, well we looked at 4 boxes and found 1 that we could not see the "O" rings the others, the "O" rings were quite visible. One it was half way out.. Well it was either purchase another box and try to remove the installed one without causing more damage to the copper tubing in the wall to remove the box or try new "O" rings. Well "O" ring it was. After several tries( warming the ring, coating it with pet.). We were sucuessful. It appears that were the "O" ring should seat is not large enough to hold it in place. When one tires to thread the assembly together it wants to push the "O" out onto the threads. It looks like a poor design. Well its done with no leaks. Right now I am worry that it will begin to leak down the road. I do not know if I should refinish the wall or not at this point. Maybe I should just pull everything out( I do not think home Depot will take the old one back now) and install a standard washer water supply box to be safe. It just all the rework that I am doing and will have to do because the Shark Bite company has poor quality control on some of their products. All the other products appear to work just fine.
Very disappointed with Shark Bite on this product. Should have read reviews on this!
I would highly recommeand not to buy this product until the company fixes this design flaw.

Like a few others have mentioned, this product leaks from a poorly designed connection between the valve and the shark bite fitting. A small o ring is the only thing standing between that connection and a flood inside your wall. That o ring came pinched from the factory on the hot water side and leaked immediately. Tried to reseat it and it still leaked. Tried to replace with a new o ring plus Teflon pipe dope and it still leaked. I give up. Going to have to replace the whole darn thing again. I use shark bite fittings all the time but this is just poor execution. Stay away from this product until a redesign.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JerryV33 Cheap plastic
Not bad overall. Difficult to use without removing large amounts of drywall. Plastic has a very cheap look and feel. Got the job done

This box was very easy to install. Loved the fact I didn't have to solder valve connections to copper pipe. Just push on and your done. Looks very good in new laundry room after sheetrock is install.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JesseJ Flimsy Plastic and Leaky Fitting
Recently installed this washer box and after all the hookups, the cold water fixture leaked. An o-ring between the valve and the female Sharkbite was oversized and leaked. I tried to repair and reassemble with plumber's silicone but it leaked worse. Took it apart a second time and removed oversized o-ring, used tape dope only and it leaked again. Very annoying as I cannot finish the drywall until this is repaired. I was told to bring the entire unit back to Home Depot but had it mounted that would require cutting PVC. Called Sharkbite and they said they were sending a replacement valve/fitting assembly. There was no problem with the hot side however you could see the o-ring there was pressed in well and not bulging.
