Washer drain pipe and adding a utility sink


Hi all,

I'm new to the forum so go easy on me! I've tried to find information regarding my question and I can't seem to find an exact match to my scenario.

I'm looking to add a utility sink to my current laundry room setup and I think I have the right idea (got most from this site) but as I mentioned above..I can't find an exact match to my scenario. Will my microsoft paint scenario below work? Do I need to add a vent pipe to my utility sink drain line?

I've attached two pictures below...one of what my current plumbling looks like and one of what I think I could do. I'm basically wondering if anyone can chime in and let me know.

For reference, my washer/dryer are stacked and butt right up agaist that recessed washer plate and I'm hoping the sink can go right next to it.





Thoughts?

Where are you located?

Around here, we would have to provide a separate vent for the sink, and then revent it into the C/W vent. What you have there is an "S" trap, and they are legal some places and not others.

Hi Alan,

I'm located in Wisconsin.

Would either of the additional two images suffice? It sure would be nice to not have to rip out that entire wall to install the vent pipe





Thanks again for your help,
Brian

I don't really know anything about wisconsin plumbing code, but I can guide you based on what I know about my own.


How far away is the sink location from where the new vent is drawn?
