Installing a new washer & dryer in a new location!
Posted by Rob Williams on April 13, 2004 at 03:32:03:
Until recently, our only wash & dryer was in our basement . We are now renting out the basement apartment and the old w & d is used by the tenant. we bought a new w & D & want to insdtall it on the 3rd floor of our house (near our bedroom) All the plumbers I have called have given outragous estimates, so I decided to do it myself.

One of the plambers mentioned that one option for the drain would be to run drain pipe down to the basement & tie it into the drain from the basement apt.'s kitchen sink. So I ran 1 1/2" PVC pipe allthe way to the basement and conneccted it to the existing 1 1/2' pvc drain pipe in the basement. Would u recomment this or not & why If not what woulkd you suggest.

Thanks for your help.
