I have a question about running a washing machine drain vent.
I have already ran my water supply lines,electric and I have the
drain figured out,but I have ran into a small problem with the
the new washing machine location is on an exterior wall and the
"header,top plate" of the wall is made up of two 2"x8".
If I cut enough out of the 2"x8"s to get a 1-1/2 PVC up where
I can go though the roof for vent, I think it's code here in
Mississippi that the vent has to go above the roof.
I thought about running the vent off the 2" drain just as it
goes outside the wall and using a "pvc "y" and strapping it to
the exterior of the house,doing it this way I would run into
Thank for your help!!!
Re: Washing machine
I would recommend that you don't cut into the header , instead route the vent pipe over to the left or right of the header.
