Basement Laundry Room Plumbing
By: Danny Lipford
My laundry room is currently on the main floor of my home. We would like to move it to the basement and turn the present room into a half bath. We have a septic tank in the backyard, and all of the drain pipes are located at the top of the basement wall. How should we do this? -Casey
You would need to install what is known as a grinder pump or lift station to pump the drain water from the washer up to the level of your drain pipe so it can be fed into your septic tank. A plumber would be familiar with this type of system.
