Washer tray drain plug
Our washer and dryer, in a utility room on the first floor, doesn't have a drain plug in the floor. So we want to buy a tray to put under the washer that has a side drain plug. We've been to a lot of hardware stores, but all the washer trays have the drain plug in the bottom. Any ideas on what types of stores to check?

All that I have seen are a floor drain. -May- need to add your own side drain if that is what you need...

I was really hoping they made a side drain washer floor tray. This area doesn't have a floor drain because this current utility closet was once the coat closet, so it wasn't initially set up for that. Also, the floor is now completely tiled. Thanks for responding.

The picture looks like it has 3 different side positions to install the drain fitting. I may be wrong.

Didn't want to say there was a side spot but the pic does appear to have different positions but the description...."Optional floor drain connection included"....just mentioned a floor drain!?

Floor pans were originally made from metal. Why not have a tinsmith make one for you with a side opening!
