laundry drain... long sweep required?


crawlspace house... washing machine drain, an up-running 45 branches off to a AAV in wall cavity, then thru floor, it 90s and then runs between floor joists... trap is about 6" after the 90. does that 90 have to be a long sweep?

If aim not mistaken from your description the trap is offset and is now a running trap which is illegal under some codes. Pictures will help.

It kinda sounded like that to me too, but that description is pretty crazy.

Sounds like his p-trap is down under the floor.....mine is in the wall just below the washer box....

I think that p-trap needs to be higher.....
