    Default Is my Laundry room drain relocation to Code in Alberta?

Size:  33.2 KBAttachment 18044Attachment 18043I am planning to move my existing washing machine stack to a different wall, and adding a drain for a utility sink. on my existing layout is the T with a seperate threaded cap my clean out?

    I plan to cut both T's out of my vent pipe, and add 2 new ones. The one for the washing machine will need a 45* bend in it to run down the other wall 6 feet. and a second one for a utility sink.

    Any addition info you can give me on pitch of my drains,required heights, lengths or clean outs would be great!

    Existing picture on the left , new layout on the right.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    You can't wet vent a washer over "anything".

    It siphons the trap of the fixture below.

    So swapping the location of each with the sink on the top would be fine?

    Swapping would be better, and then adding a vent for the washer trap arm, and then reventing the two vents at 42" makes it legal anywhere.

    Your help is greatly appreciated Terry. If I follow you correctly, you are saying to add a "T" before the Washer trap, and run a vent up, and back over to my existing vent and tapping into it with another T connection? I am unclear as to where this 42" measurement applies to.

    Thanks again!
