Separating supply and return

An ox box allows you put the supply and return lines for a washing machine, ice maker, or lavatory outlet into separate stud bays. Since the ox box is mounted on a stud, you can install the supply line in one stud bay, and the return line in another stud bay. This way, you will save installation time and reduce the number of joints behind your wall, which also reduces the risk of a leak behind your wall.
