How to confirm water box is big enough?

I did a few MD simulations with the the minimum distance from the protein to
the edge of the water box as 10 angstrom. The simulations ran smoothly
without any problem. I am wondering what I could do to confirm the water box
is big enough? Should I measure the distance between the protein and its
image in the other boxes during the simulation? Or what else can I do to
convince people that the water box is not too small?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
