|In response to Re: Tapping into an existing drain|
: I am remodeling my basement where a floor drain already exists. I would like to move my washing maching but I need to re-route the drain. It must go through the concrete floor and I have to tap into the existing floor drain.
: Will I need to completely dig out the existing drain in order to add a new pipe? Or, is there a way to cap the existing pipe in the concrete floor w/o removing all of the cement around it?
This basically means that if you want to utilize the FD for the tie-in point for the WM drain, the floor will need to be opened, the floor drain removed and the drainage and vent piping rearranged according to code to accommodate the WM.
