We are about to remodel our basement and want to relocate our washer and dryer. We want to move them into the furnace room just inside the door. The plumping can be re-located easely because the water heaters in the same room. The only way I can see to get rid of the water from the washer is to cut into the concrete floor, and run a drain pipe to the floor drain 15ft away. We will get a plumber in , but was wondering if it is within the Canadian code to do so. Thanks for any info.
The end of the washing machine drain hose must make a loose fit into whatever it is connected to.
If the floor drain doesn't have enough capacity in terms of gallons per minute, it will overflow. A check valve in the floor drain may result in not enough capacity. Nowadays a washing machine drain pipe should be 2 inches in size.
When cleaning anything including baby diapers, it is better to sweep off or scrape off as much solid and semisolid material as you can first. (1) Less cleaning fluid or detergent needs to be used, (2) Less of a mushy mess which in turn means that bleaches or disinfectants will be more effective.
