    I am installing a washer in a new location and PVC drain. It is fairly close to the 2" copper drain line for the bathroom and kitchen sinks. Will the 2" line be able to handle the bathroom and kitchen sinks and the washer? If so, would a Fernco Tee be the easiest way to connect to the copper drain? Any tips on ensuring a good trouble free drainage of the washer and what the min vent should be for the fixtures?

  2. Do not use a fernco tee, that is not code. I would make the correct transition from copper to PVC and make sure you install this piping with a vent before tieing in or the vanity and sink will gurgle when the washing machine discharges.
