Washing Machine in Basement
Posted by Chris Dickey on March 29, 19101 at 22:29:15:
We just bought a house with the laundry room in the basement. Whenever the washer drains a lot of water sloshes out of the drain pipe (which extends vertically from the back of the washer for a few feet until it reaches a drain line which runs out into the septic tank) initially, as if the drain pipe can't keep up with the rush of water at first. It eventually catches up and the majority of the water drains out, but it showers our laundry room every time. Is there a different sort of system we can use, maybe a pump of some kind, or some way to stop this from happening?
