Do not even consider draining the units into the gravel under the floor. And unless the sump pump is connected to the drain system, you may not want to connect the sink and washer into it either until it is connected to the sanitary system. But that sump crock is where you have to run the drain to.

: I AM LOKING FOR INFO ON HOW TO HOOK UP A DRAIN FOR WASHING MACHINE & UTILTY TUB IN A BASEMENT. THE 2 INCH DRAIN PIPE IS 7'0" OVERHEAD THAT THE WASHER WAS HOOKED TO ON THE MAIN FLOOR OF THE HOME. I HAVE A SEPTIC TANK AND LEACH FIELD LOCATED IN THE YARD THAT ALL THE WASTE RUNS TO. ANOHTER OPTION THAT I MIGHT HAVE IS THE 4INCH TILE LOCATED UNDER THE BASEMENT FLOOR THAT RUNS TO THE SUMP PUMP CROCK. IS PUTTING A STACK PIPE IN THE FLOOR A VIABLE OPTION? THE CONCRETE FLOOR WAS TILED AND PUT OVER 6 INCHES OF CRUSHED STONE THAT WOULD PROBABLY DRIAN REALLY WELL.
