For one thing, it would make it a heck of a lot easier to tie it into one of those other lines there and put a p-trap and a trap primer on it.
My thought was to just elbow the 2 inch(depicted in green in photo G) right into the current basement floor drain since this 2 inch would only direct water in the emergency situation where the first floor laundry room floods. A good name for this would be "an indirect waste" as you call it.
Alanyou say,"and you probably can't use the p-trap from that 3" to serve something located on the 2nd floor".
What p-trap are you referring to? Hopefully not the condensate trap in photo G. Even though the green lines look like they terminate there that was not my intention. Photo G only shows a continuation of the 2" I suggest running along the wall in photo F.
Also the laundry room floor drain I want to put in will be on the 1st floor not 2nd floor.
