We need an actual "house" or "home/garage/projects" type section on the forum, contruction/repair/honey do type section. Just my opinion
Ok, I need to move the washer and dryer from a basement to the main floor in my mom's which means all new drains/water supply. I scoped it out last night, it looks like I will have about a 4 foot drop to maybe a couple 90's then a straight run about 15 feet another 90 then about another 9 feet to where I will tie in to the existing pipe from a bathroom.
* what is the normal size pipe or proper size pipe to run for this application for drain? I have always had
utility ink drainage for washers so this is new territory. I will install an in the wall drain/supply box.
* will I be able to drain this far away? I kind of don't have much of a choice. I will be able to provide
plenty of fall in the run, the 15 ft will be up under 2x10 joyces and actually have to drop down under
once I hit the 90 and the 9ft run will be another 3-4" drop to drain pipe hookup.
* Should I use 90's, sweeps, or make sweeps if possible out out of 45's? Sure don't want backups.
* I've never used PEX, but recent thread and ease of use from what I've seen may make this logical
choice. Supply will be just as long and I will hook into bathroom supplies in same area.
