Washer Drain into Sewer Line near Clean-Out


I having framed in a new laundry room in my oversized garage and need to move my washer, add a utility sink, and am installing a water softener as well.

I have installed my washer standpipe at 53" high as my washer is an LG he Frontload Washer that is 39" tall plus a 14" pedestal. From there, the 2" standpipe connects to a p-trap and 2" drain line which will be run (small downward slope) out the side wall of the garage just beyond the slab and will 90 degree elbow down into the dirt where the 2" PVC pipe will continue for approx. 20 ft before I need to tie it into the sewer cleanout which is an upside-down "T" connection.

All of that background info is to preface the question, is it okay/proper to use a WYE connection on the 4" main PVC sewer line between where it comes out of the house slab before the clean-out? If it is okay, do they make a Wye connection that goes from 2" to 4". Is there anything else that I need to do / worry about?

Not an exhaustive list, but.... venting, codes, permits, inspectors

My main concern was...Is it okay/proper to use a WYE connection on the 4" main PVC sewer line between where it comes out of the house slab before the clean-out"?

I am aware of the need to vent...not sure yet if I need to run a new rooftop vent or if there is something nearby.

I am in the county, so no permits/inspectors/codes to worry about.

In that case, yes that's the way to make a connection. With a 4"X2" WYE. And yes, they make 'em.

What do you mean by an upside down connection in your original post?

Also in your original post you mentioned tying it into the sewer cleanout. Then you said "before the cleanout". A little confused.

The quotations got lost in my post...but it was supposed to say upside-down "T". Meaning, the cleanout looks like an upside down "T". Pipe in from house, clean-out just above soil, and pipe out to sewer treatment facility.

Also, I meant just before the sewer clean-out...not tying into the vertical pipe that comes out of the ground, but just before that into the horizontal pipe right before you hit the clean-out. (I only have about 1-1/2 ft of pipe from the slab to the clean-out that I am working with, so I hope I have enough room to get in there and make this work...I supposed I could move the clean-out a foot or so, but there is a bush right next to it also that hides it from view).

Hope all is clear now...thanks.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?
