    Default Laundry Room Rough-in

    Hello all, what a great site and a good bunch of people here. Let me start by saying thanks for all that I have learned from just reading here. Well any way the reason I decided to post is to see of some one could clear up some rough in details for me. My wife and I are buying and going to move into a 140 year old house and the first thing I need to do is move the laundry room down stairs into a part of the house that is a lot newer than the rest. The new laundry room will have a laundry sink as well as the washing machine. My question is about the drain/vent and instead of a long drawn out explanation or a crappie drawing from me I found this pic on the net of basically what I want to do. Could some one tell me if this is kosher? I live in central Illinois and the village I live in basically has no code and the job will not be inspected but I would like to be as UPC compliant as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.

    The code is a state code not a village code.

    You just may not have anyone to enforce it.

    The pic you posted is good, how far will the vent and T be from the trap?

    Not sure yet. It will be a few weeks before I can get into the house and get some measurements but I think the sink will be rite next to the washer. Thanks for the help.

    Personally, I'd have put the washer lower than the sink, and not into the same fitting. I'm afraid you'll be filling the sink when the washer pumps.

    Washer and laundry tray rough-in

    Notice the water hammer arrestors on the valves.

    OK guys, Let me see if I have this correct. The rough in pictured in my first post would be code compliant but may not work so well in practice? In the example that Terry shows, the washer trap arm must be re-vented because it is not the highest fixture on the stack? I will have to look into the Illinois state plumbing code and also find out if our county has any special code of there own or if they just go by the state code. I am sure that I will have many more questions when I tear into the up stairs bath rooms. Thanks again for the input.
