Why didn't you just thread a male adapter in where that cleanout is and use that for your utility sink drain?

I assumed that the cleanout access shouldn't be taken away. But I suppose it would be easy to simply unthread the connection to access the cleanout. Oh well.

So it sounds like the only issue here is that suds from the washer could creep up into the utility sink. I should run a load and see what happens.

If it turns out this is a code violation, I can cap the tee that I cut and try running it to the main drain pipe, but it is on the other side of the basement and not in a good area for a sink.

Yeah I was thinking more in terms of elevation problems since people were talking about putting 2x4's under the legs.

There's no reason you can't put the cleanout in the wall above the sink. Probably be easier to access that way anyhow. Minimum cleanout size for a 2" drain is 1-1/2"

Of course I had a situation once where I had to put a 1/2" cable down a 2" drain and I was glad that the 2" cleanout was there.
