Tying Into Dry Well Pipe


The pipe you see in the pic is our current drywell pipe from our washer. About where I'm taking my pic is our tenants utility room where there is plumbing setup for a washer. My question is can I penetrate the wall and tie into our pipe so we are both draining into the drywell? Another question, if I'm able to do that what would happen if we were both using our washers at the same time? I assume it would back up. Anyway or anything to install so that wouldn't happen? Any input/advice would be great.

It's only two of them and me and my wife so there washer is not used a whole lot.

Thanks

I'd just be blow away if even what you have now would have ever pasted inspection in you location!
Exposed pipe on an outside wall, draining into a drywall, not into a septic of city sewer drain.
Need to be getting permits and inspection on this one.

Not in my state. You would be scrapping the entire thing. Washers need to drain to a point of treatment, Septic or sewer. State EPA must approve of any grey water drainage.

Got it. I think I'll look into removing how ours drains. I really want to give my tenant washer and dryer. Any other drainage options besides busting up floors and tapping into main line? Thanks.

Install a 2 inch stand pipe to a floor drain.

Do you have a floor drain in the area you want a washer machine?
