Tapping into existing drain


Hello,

I want to add a wetbar to an old closet in the basement I'm converting. And before I do something dumb, I wanted to ask here if it what I want to do is possible.

Behind this closet is an existing bathroom. And adjacent to the closet, behind the bathroom, there is the unfinished laundry room.

I can see the drain for the bathroom sink and was wondering if I can tap into it for the wetbar as in this picture:

Thanks for the help!

Tapping into existing drain


You can tie into the vertical drain section, not the horizontal trap arm
