The little lady wants a "convenience" sink in the basement. 2" washer drain is too high. Anyone know of a "pump-up" draining sink ?

Anyone know of an "up-draining" sink. Wifey wants a small "convenience" sink in the basement and the 2" washer drain is too high, but is nearby the desired sink site.
Thank you,

where does the washer drain run too? Generally speaking, you aren't going to get water to run uphill without a pump so, does the washer drain into a sump with a pump?

sounds like with some engineering you could use an hvac pump to washer drain

They make some self contained units that can fit into a moderately sized vanity cabinet. We've put in a couple of them, but I can't remember what they are called. They're effluent only pumps.

Realistically, however, adding a pump will complicate the system. Does she want the sink on the same wall as the washer? If so, it should be easy enough to tap a drain off below the washer's p-trap, run it horizontally and revent it into the washing machine vent.
