I'd like to install a second clothes washer in the basement my 22 year
old house in the Greater Toronto Area. The washer will go in the
furnace room and I'm planning on running the drain into the little
floor drain ( about a 1 1/2" pipe), which is normally just used to
drain away condensation from the a/c unit.
I'm wondering whether that little drain would be sufficient to handle
a washing machine. I know that I'll have to build it up somehow so
that the washer hose doesn't siphon off the water in the washer. I
don't believe that there is a vent on this drain, as it's in the
middle of the room.
All suggestions/comments would be appreciated.
