    Re: gravity drainage options

    I think you're spot on Ace, washer box and bathroom were add-ons I believe.
    I have a guy coming out tomorrow with a camera to investigate.
    Thanks for all the advice.

      Re: gravity drainage options

      I had drain inspected with a camera today(different plumber). As it turns out the main sewer line (4") connects to the toilet (see photos) incorrectly, but does continue over to the laundry area just under the concrete where the washer box is situated. However the camera ran into a block upstream from there. This raised questions about the mainlines suitability for all the water this machine will generate over time. So the current recommendation is relocation to the alternate site (with concrete saw cutting) to install a new 4" PVC line dedicated to the floor drain that exits the home in parallel fashion to the old sewer line and joins it in the back yard. I am rapidly losing confidence in the old plumbing sustaining the new load. I will keep posting updates if helpful. If any others are finding this useful please let me know and I can fill in additional details. Thanks again for all the analysis and advice from afar. Good Luck to you all in your endeavors.
