How can I connect a stand pipe to my existing lines?


I'm currently renovating my laundry room. Previously the washing machine emptied into a laundry tub. I would like to install a standpipe for it to drain into instead.

I've attached a picture of the plumbing I currently have. In the picture you will see the old drain for the laundry tub, a line that connects to the left which comes from the kitchen sink upstairs, and a line in the back which is a vent. Would it be correct to connect the standpipe via a Y onto the horizontal part of the drain line that runs to the laundry tub? The only other option I can think of is connecting it onto the vertical part of the drain line that comes from the kitchen sink, however doing this would result in the trap being over 18 inches from the floor which from my understanding is not allowed.

Thanks for the help!

Does anyone have any suggestions at all? I'm at a stand still on this project until I can get this figured out...
