In response to Re: Washing machine drains

: I am planning on installing a washing amchine in the basement,
: and need to add a drain (hot and cold water are already
: in). There is an existing tee on the main stack, about
: five feet away. Can I simply run a 2" PVC line to the tee?
: Can I feed the washing machine drain hose directly into an
: opening end of the 2" PVC? DO I need a trap?

The two inch pipe can run to the 2" pipe using a San-Tee fitting on the vertical. You will need a vent, and then a p-trap. The washer drain can go into the standpipe of the p-trap. Terry
