Hard to believe it's been three years since I posted anything.
yeah, I suck.
Now I have something. A watch-out for anyone with a second floor laundry.
yeah, turns out that goes to the second floor washing machine tray. So, I guess in Ryan's mind, if my washer has a leak, it will be fine to discharge onto a 2x4 covered I-Beam. That way it makes a bigger mess.
I'm no house builder, or even a licensed house inspector, but I have to believe this should be hooked to a main drain...right!?
And since we are talking about the washing machine tub, mine had a loose pipe that was supposed to magically direct water into the pipe (that ends above my I-Beam). Turns out, it's not so magical, as once I lifted the tray out, I found water underneath...and NOT through the magical loose pipe and into the pipe that ends in oblivion.
Now if you buy a new tray from Home Depot, it comes with a the proper plumbing fitting with gasket. I know, as I bought one last night to replace the magical pipe Ryan left me.
And why did I have to buy a new tray JUST to get the proper plumbing fitting...because my beloved Home Depot didn't sell just the plumbing parts. Quick tip, Water heater trays are $10 with the same fitting as the $30 washing machine trays.
So folks, you may want to understand where exactly your upper floor laundry room washing machine tray dumps to.
See ya in three years.
