    Here is the issue…..
    My ball float floor drain is my washing machines current drain. Two to three times a year this will cause a backup into the basement, due to several possible reasons. I think that if I use a stand pipe instead of that floor drain my issues will be resolved.
    is the plan…..
    I would like to remove the old tee on the kitchen sink drain. Install a 2” sanitary Tee run a new 2” line over to the 1.5 inch vent stack. Then still on 2”pipe come back install P-trap and stand pipe. The picture says to cap the old 1.5" line, but i will probably just remove it completely so it is not in the way while working on new plumbing.
    Seems straightforward, am I missing anything?

    All comments and advice would be graciously accepted!!! I am a fairly experienced DIYer!
