Utility Sink Plumbing Question
 
Sorry if this is a stupid question.

In our unfinished basement we have a utility sink and a washer and dryer with the washer emptying into the utility sink. It all works great but we are considering finishing the basement and would like to move the washer, dryer, and utility sink about 20 feet to not be in the center of the basement. There is no drainage at that end so my question is whether we could move all of it and just add 20 feet onto the utility sink piping?

Thanks!

In theory yes. You will need to move water lines, waste pipe and vent pipe. Will your drain be to high? 20ft @ 1/4" perft = 5" of grade.

Electrical work and dryer duct will most likely be required if you move the dryer as well.
