Well then,you're going to have to bite the bullit and get someone to do the drain. It'll speed things up. And when in wall check thevalve if its a true shower valve or tub and sh valve with tub spout plugged.

Give me some price estimates I should be looking for to remove the poured pan and cut the slab to relocate the drain. I can do the rest.

If the trap is right at drain opening ,you can just reroute riser over for tub,if trap is deep enough.2-1 1/2" 90s and some pipe. Should only take a few hours to move drain.

Wow. That's quite the conglomeration of fittings you have there.

Most of that is not legal under any code I'm familiar with.

The black pipe you want to drain into is too high to serve as a drain, but then again so is the pipe it's presently draining into.

Basically, your building drain is too high to allow anything in the basement to be gravity drained into it. A legal installation would consist of an ejector pit with it's discharge pumped up into the building drain.

That being said, if you want to drain your washer into the black pipe you should know that....

A. The pipe is too small (it needs to be 2")
B. The pipe is too high (your washer has to pump the water all the way up there and you'll likely have soaking wet loads of laundry as if the spin cycle never happened)
C. A washing machine should really have about a 24" stand pipe above its p-trap because of the suds. This would make your discharge point even higher.

In a nutshell, what I'm trying to say is that you've got quite the plumbing abortion going on here and a licensed plumber would have to reconfigure everything and charge you a lot of money to fix it.
If it's working as it is now, you are not going to improve the situation by doing what you want to.

I'm sure this isn't the kind of thing you wanted to hear, but it's the truth.

oh its cool.. aparently according to all the local plumbers it costs $4000 to replace a water heater, so Im aware all plumbers hate working


my washer can pump to a maximum height of 96". I will be installing a pedestal under the washer, raising it an additional 14", making the point I'll be pumping too roughly around 5' above the bottom of the washer.


thanks for the help though... or whatever you want to call it...

IMHO moving the washer to the 1st floor with a proper standpipe (2") tied in before the house trap might be the simplest solution.
