    Washing Machine P Trap Too High/Standpipe Short?

    The bottom of my washing machine 2” p trap is 25” off the floor and the standpipe is 19” tall. I’ve read that the trap is supposed to be 6-18” off the floor and standpipe 18-30” tall. It’d be a lot of work with the way it’s all run to change the p trap height. I could, however lengthen the...
