Few Questions


I have a couple questions
i plan on moving washer and dryer to new location when i reno the basement it will be close to the main stack witch i plan on plumbing into the main stack.(should be doable as long as i put in a trap) right?
i would run a 1 1/2 off the main 3 inch vertical stack
The old washer drain is cemented into the floor i would like to cap this drain
1) can i cap it? i was thinking bust cement back till i could plumb a cap on it then replace the cement with new
i would also like to cap another hole that comes to the surface that i think was ment to be a snake hole but it has a t on the main sewer line so a snake would never go down it. was going to do the same thing for this hole. i would then plumb in a snake access further up the main stack in the furnace room.
just got this House a while ago the toilet doesn't want to flush and drian properly the toilet is new and everything inside the toilet is working properly... im thinking its the drain it runs about 2 feet straight down then 90 to straight to the main stack and connects at a T. I was thinking of replacing the drain with a 45 higher up to a 45 in the main stack would that do the trick?
I also plan on fixing an existing problem while doing the basement which is water supply. Our well is about 500m away from the house. tin the pump house there is a 3/4hp jet pump and pressure system on a 20/40 switch. If we run the water for a long time the pump over heats and auto shuts off.
I was told i should put in a valve.... my neighbor who has a similar set up uses a deep well pump that is 220v they have no problems i was thinking about going that route. Money is no issue what is my best option?

I'll take a stab--
*You can tie your washer to your stack but it needs to be 2" pipe, trapped and vented with min. 1 1/2" vent
*Cap your old line at either location
*Don't understand your cleanout arrangement
*Pull the toilet and check the stub for blockage. I don't think you need to reconfigure the drain. How you propose to do it isn't code (if I understood your post)
I won't comment on your well, don't know much about them

Sorry about the crap paint pic
on the right is how it is and the left is what i was talking

the one on left goes straight down to a 90 then connects to the main stack at a T

the one on the right would use 2 45's

What would be code?
this house is in a RM where code doesn't matter but i would like to make it functional. The toilet has been apart and there is no blockage

*You can tie your washer to your stack but it needs to be 2" pipe, trapped and vented with min. 1 1/2" vent
*Cap your old line at either location


thanks for the info

You can't convince me that your current toilet pipe layout is causing your problem. That is the common and correct pipe arrangement. Camera and/or cable from your flange to the base of the stack. I still suspect a blockage.
Better still, pull the toilet and pour a few large buckets of water down the drain. If it takes it then suspect your toilet.
