|In response to Re: Laundry Tub|
: I have an extremely small laundry room and I would like to install a laundry tub next my stacked washer and dryer. I could drain the washing machine into the tub; however I would love to be able to connect the sink into the current plumbing for the washing machine. The house was just built three months ago and sits on the ground level with a basement obviously below.
: If I attempt to install the drain for the laundry sink into the current washing machine drain stack I was informed that I would need to branch the pipe after the trap for the washing machine. With this in mind, I now believe that the best location for the branch is the horizontal pipe between the stud and the PVC from above. Since this will be two horizontal connections I believe that I will need to use a 2" X 2" X 11/2" Reducing Wye.
: Here is a crude diagram of the current layout or click the following link

: The Stack Pipe to the bottom of the trap is 30"
: 1) Is this even feasible
No, you cannot do it like you show here. The connection cannot be made on the trap arm--the part of the piping between the p-trap and its vent (is this really the way the washer was originally vented?). The connection not only needs to be made after the p-trap, but also after the point of vent.
