Thank. I definitely don't think that I can install two boxes. Right now I'm planning in installing just one. That will meet my needs with 1 240V circuit and 4 120 V circuits. Since I don't have any...

Do they make 1 1/4 rubber coupling? I haven't been able to find any online. All the Fernco ones seem to start for 1 1/2 copper. And the regular rubber 1 1/4 fittings are also too big for copper.

Thanks for the link. I measured the copper pipe OD and it appears to be 1 3/8. Does that sound right? Would I use the 1 1/2 fitting or do they make smaller ones? Thanks.
