Ok, back in this post of mine that's all I was asking, if it makes the long run down to your sewer. Just wanted to verify that it couldn't be tied into.

That was my first option to have one of the small sump pump under the sink and pump the drain to that pipe, but I will like to avoid any use of pumps.

Well then I think your idea of elevating it on a platform sufficiently high enough to allow for proper drainage is your best bet.

No you are not good with the 2 x 6. If you look at my formula you need a 2 x 12 with 3/4 inch plywood. That will give you a quarter inch per foot. Now, I would venture to say that you can get away with less slope since we are not talking about much solid waste, such as that which comes from a toilet. The 2 x 6 with 3/4 inch plywood will give you 1/8 inch per foot. Go with a 2 x 8 box with 3/4 plywood.

What state are you in. It will make a big difference as to which plumbing code applies.

If your in an IPC code state you will need to revent the drain by your new laundry sink location. Use an Air Admittance valve by the laundry tray downstream of the trap for the Laundry tray.
