my kitchen sink currently has an 1.5 inch drain that drops down into the basement and ties into a drain under the slab. the only other thing that drains into this is a laundry tub which is currently where my washing machine and dishwasher drain into (long story on the dishwasher). anwyay i am planning on putting in a new kitchen sink and counter complete with a garbage disposal, but i am being told that if i keep the inch and a half drain i am going to have problems. i need at least a 2" drain? i dont have a problem with that, however what i would like to do is replace that drain and have my washer drain directly into the new pipe vice the laundry tub. my concern is that 2" may not be able to accomidate this? does it make sense to break out the slab around the current drain and put in a 4" drain, and tie everything into that? or does it make more sense to change the pipe to 2" and move the washer and dryer over closer to the main stack and drain it into there? what is the best way to accomplish this?
