Laundry room remodel


1 : Can't install trap for clotheswasher below floor

2 : Length for standpipe for clotheswasher cannot be less than 18" nor more than 30 "

3 : Standpipe needs to stay vertical (greater than 45*)

I'm sure there are more.

yea it would be legal here. we can extend a small single fixture (under 2") waste 12' from a vented line. the vent can run horizontal. the only restiction is that the vent must terminate at least 6" above flood level of fixture it serves. I didn't write the code but we have been following it since 1933. it works

So then a washing machine doesn't qualify since it's not under 2" ?

I should have said 2" or under, but we are also allowed to run a washing machine with 1 1/2", not that I do it but it's allowed.
Our codes are published on line @ Phila.Gov. then go to "License and Inspections" they have a code libary there.

Just wanted to post and show how the remodel went. Although not thru with the sheetrock or floor, the washer and dryer and Hot water heater are in and functioning for several weeks now. Drain for washer works great. Vent pipe works fine. no odor. Will install side vent kit for dryer, then complete sheetrock and install counter top.
