compresoin is optional and i would not change t but instead reduce the 6 " piece of pipe i like atleast that to make it easy to get a snake through if ever needed but they can just take aav off and snake through there

most of the time my t ends up in one stud space then i drill through stud put pipe through and then p trap in next stud space. if covering up with drywall use a cold air grill in front of aav so it can breath and be excess able

replacing washer drain pipe


FYI : my local rules regarding washing machine installation


Trap for clotheswasher standpipe shall be roughed in no less than 6" but no more than 12" above the floor.

Standpipe for washing machine shall be no less than 18" long, but no more than 30" long

The trap arm (between the trap weir and the vent) shall be no less than 2X the diameter of the pipe. (IE : 2" pipe = 4" trap arm)

There's nothing wrong with the way you have it drawn here : replacing washer drain pipe

Other than you keep referring to it as AAC, when it's actually an AAV, or some refer to them as Studor vents. Just didn't want you to have a hard time finding what you need.

Drain must be 2", the vent can be 1-1/2"


Don't get a trap with a cleanout in the bottom of it... it's not really necessary. If you want a cleanout, put an extra sanitary tee in the drain portion below the vent tee, and put a cleanout adapter in it.

Come to find out that that is the sink drain. The extra pipe I seen under the house went to a old ac unit drain. The vent to aav is the top of the double t
