Help with Laundry room rough in


I have a six foot wall that I am putting a Stackable washer and dryer and a 3' cabinet with utility sink. I have access to 3" main drain from the second floor. I have included a drawing that I think is correct but any comments would be great.

TIA

Put the sink tee above or below the 2" washing machine tee. This will save you a 3x2 tee. Now you need to find a way to vent the washer/sink wet vent. You can't use a multi-story waste stack for venting. Perhaps a studer vent if allowed in your area.

I think that the laundry box looks a little high. Are going to stack the washer on top of the dryer?

Ok so would this be a better plan to follow? The existing washer in the room directly benind this new room has a studer vent so I asume that I can "move" it to the new location. I also moved the sink to the new vent line. And yes the washer box is high but I am trying to keep all the connections hidden behind the stackable washer and dryer. The dryer is on the top but the vent and dryer box takes up all my space a the normal level. The washer says not to put the drain over 96" and I am at around 72"

How high does the studer vent need to be?

let me know what you think.

Thanks

Looks good. Studers need to be accessible for service if needed- height is OK
Invest in some nail plates for the studs- keeps the drywall screws out of the pipes.

Ok, thanks for all the help. I do have one last question, what kind of T should I use to connect the vent pipe to the washer drain?

Thanks,

Washers are usually on the bottom due to the weight on stack units. Why will the dryer be on the bottom? Maybe I am missing something.

Thanks,
When running drain lines, you want to use a 2" combination wye and 45 when you go vertical to horizontal, not a tee. But you need a tee for the laundry sink. The vent above the sink can be 1.5"

I believe there is a max distance for your washer drain to the trap which that looks to exceed. I forgot the exact number that the code lists.
