washer & sink hookup...
 
2 Attachment(s)
Ok so here is the story, the wife wanted a sink next to the washer.

So i did a rough-in and she ran the washer and once i got a little water backup (about 1 cup) into the sink drain.

Is this done correctly or what would you guys change?

I know it should be a 2'' abs tube but its a 1 1/2'' and everything was fine till i added sink.

I am thinking its because the drain for the sink is below the washer , but the reason i did it that way is cause if not the drain would be too high (18'' +) for the sink.

Any ideas ?

BTW where you see the orange wire it leads to a AAV and main drain is coming from the right side.

Thanks in advance !!

You guessed correctly. The sink needs to be above washer or given your layout, downstream on the horizontal

thanks , thats what i was thinking.

My main problem is height, putting the sink above will be too high !

and it should be 2 inch pipe for a washing machine. the larger capacity washing machines will pump an 1-1/2 pipe full when they drain.
