Washing Machine Drain line design
Asked Dec 16, 2006, 03:33 PM
Hello all. Thanks for any help with this in advance!
I would like to retro-fit a washing machine in my ground floor condo.
My plan is to install a 2" stand-pipe and p-trap then run my 2" pipe 8' long, then turn 90 degrees then another 6' to a 2" combo stack that serves my lav and my upstairs neighbor's lav. I was planning on sloping 1/4" per foot, and connecting ~8" above the finish floor, just under where my lav connects. I'm concerned that the 14' run is too long or is it ok since I will have an air gap at the standpipe? I plan on buying a front loading washer or laundry center. I am aware that 2004 Florida plumbing code requires 3" for the stack at washers. I will not be pulling a permit...
Also, if the distance is OK, would I need a clean-out at that 90 degree turn?
