Utility sink

Hello, I have been reading through these forums looking for help with a new utility sink installation. (Iím new here). We would like to install the sink where I outlined in red in the pic. After reading so many post Iíve confused myself for sure. What would be the best way to keep this sink on the left side and plumb the drain into the existing plumbing. Thanks for any help offered to me, we would really appreciate it!!

Welcome to the forums.

Not sure about the actual plumbing part but it looks like it's going to be a tight squeeze there. You've got a washer and dryer there starting at the corner..... based on the framing it looks like the sink will be partially covered.

I think you'd need to move the 4" sanitary tee for the washer drain up about 8" so that the sanitary tee for the utility sink drain could be located right where it is.

Thank you, the utility room walls have been completed so I was able to get exact measurements in order to figure out what sink will fit. I took pictures of everything before they finished this room. We werenít able to make changes during the building process.

Move the 4in tee up or add one above it sounds easy, is there a wet vent or code or anything to worry about at this point?

I don't understand. If the room is finished what are you going to do..... re-open the wall ??

Yes, I am going to open the wall, this is a new house. The builder would not allow for changes to be made after a certain time period due to permitting and other reasons.
