  2. Is it feasible to raise this plumbing higher? Or should I bulkhead around it?

    I currently have a drop ceiling in most of my basement that is at 7' height. I want to get rid of that and go with an 8' drywall (or even high suspended) ceiling wherever possible, bulkheading...

    OK this is probably a goofy question but I will ask...washing machine supply hoses, how far open do you turn the spigot? All the way? I don't know if it's bad to leave it all the way open.

    Here is what I ended up with. Go easy on me, first time using PVC for something other than a potato gun. :) Still need to put a couple more hangers on it.

    Open to any criticism/opinions.

    No, not fun, not fun at all! :-) Just so you guys understand I'm not trying to add anything new or fancy here, just trying to properly 'fix' was was done previously. It's also a very slow drain...

    Alright, got it all done last night, minus the vent line coming out from the sink drain. I had a few people tell me it was so close to the vertical stack that it wasn't necessary.

    But, I screwed...

    Well, that was a hard lesson to find out that vent wasn't entirely 'dry'...up comes 3 rows of flooring + underlayment, and a lot of towels (Translation: Opened up the vent/drain in the basement, used...

    Wow, thanks for taking the time to type all that out.

    In the picture above, the sink drain, what is the proper way to come out from the 2" horizontal? A Wye/45 with a cap in the other end? I...

    OK I don't mean to stir the pot, but just get a better understanding of things. I have had a couple people tell me that since my drains are within 4' of the waste/vent stack, then I do not need...

    I would really prefer not to. I know it's just a laundry/utility room, but I'd like it to have its own drain and maybe even keep the sink from filling up with water!

    Is my best option to just...

    Actually, I see you replied as I was creating this post, I wasn't even thinking about that one. Thank you.

    Here is a closer view of that area. Not a big deal I don't think. For a lack of better...

    I misunderstood dlarrivee's post about being on it's side, I thought that meant side as in the vertical pipe. I was thinking of the bottom one as more 'on its back', but nevertheless, I would still...

    Are you using a different horizontal pipe for each drain into the main stack on the right? Problem is, if the horizontal drain pipe is any higher, it will be at or above the level of the sink drain,...

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean...I was going to have the sink and washer on the same drain line. Please forgive me, I don't know all the terminology. :(

    At HD now, mobile.
    Nothing above the kitchen. Haven't snaked yet, but am buying one.
    No ABS here I can see. Think I am going to cut it all off, couple a Fernco to the stub, and redo it in PVC....

    I turned on the upstairs sink, and it's draining down the pipe labeled below. The pipe that the washing machine is draining into is the one that's a couple...
  21. Please look at my washing machine/utility sink drain setup...need advice.

    Previous homeowner was victim of watching too many DIY reality shows, nothing has been done correctly or works like it should. If this IS correct, then I will eat crow.
