    I want to add a Laundry tray. Currently, the washing machine drains into a standpipe. Can I drain the laundry tray by putting a "T" into the standpipe?

    Pull the washer stand pipe and put the laundry tray into the washer trap. Then drain the washer into the laundry tray.

    I understand that, but are there any venting issues? I'm assuming not, but I just wanted confirmation. Thanks.
