I can do that - no worries. Will do.

As someone whose been in the trade for a while, anything in particular I should keep in mind as I prep for the plumbing inspection?

Thanks again.

Thinking about it could you move the vent next to the window and tie in the vent above. Install a T in the vent 18" above the floor, run a short horz piece to the trap and then up to the washer connection. Thus eliminating the trap below the sub-floor

It is always Yes sir/maam, No sir/maam to the inspector.

Because the are different codes depending on local jurisdiction it is also wise to discuss the project as you go along. Most code depts will come out as you progress and to give advise to the job so that you don't have to tear out. Also you need to check with your local codes to see how the test the system integerty - if they do at all.

Here we have to fill the complete system with water 10 feet above the highest fixture connection.

Just to make sure I'm tracking, are you saying to have a stack vent to the left of the window that also serves as the drain with a horizontal run to the right to a p-trap above the subfloor?

Thanks for the inspector advise. My intention was to call the inspection office today and see if they would come out to approve of the work so far and make recommendations just in case. Didn't get around to it today but will tomorrow.

Thanks,
Ron

I think you are tracking fine. Install a vertical pipe to the left of the widow that goes down and attaches to the drain and up that ties into the vent.
18" above sub-floor install a "T" and off the T run horizonal through the stud to the trap and then up to the washer connection. The stand pipe can be no longer that 30" from the trap weir.

Also you are using 2" for the pipe size?

Since this is in an exterior wall make sure you insulate the trap well.
