Can you swap the hot and cold control handles? The box I am replacing was plumbed with cold (blue) on left and hot (red) on right.

Yes. Each handle is attached to its valve stem with a single Phillips-head screw. The handles are interchangeable.

The outside diameter of an ordinary 2" PVC waste pipe is a perfect tight fit. You could probably get by without cementing the parts together, but I did use cement.

are the valves included

Yes. Those two valves are what justifies the price. The valves include Sharkbite (or equivalent) push-to-connect fittings.

Put a wrench (this it was 7/8) on hex inside the box, then slip 8mm hex (Allen) into the end of the compression fitting. Unscrew as normal. Pop the knockouts on other side of box, then reinstall fittings.

Answers

The strips that attach to the adjacent studs have a set of ratchet-like detents where they attach to the box, which allow you to adjust the box depth, however, you do not have clear access to this from inside the box. I believe they push in from the front, so you may be able to slip a shim in alongside the outside of the box at the mounting strap attachment points to hold it in place, and pull the box forward to see if it will advance a click or two as needed.

Home Depot has the wrong picture posted. This is the incorrect placement of the drain and valves. The item number is correct, but if you Google it the correct item is not what is shown. I had to change the date for my plumber. Please update this picture Home Depot.

LOVE IT. Bought it with expectation of attaching it unto old copper lines, but found those were part of a crappy plumbing job. Ended-up with SharkBite compression fittings, then some PEX into this box. Worked perfectly. Couldn't be happier. It was my first experience with compression fittings, and I'll say this- Once you press them in tight, press them again. That is not directed at the Tecite box- I'm saying that about all compression fittings. Give them one more firm press....

Box is a little small for the valves. Other than that works great.
