Clothes Washer far from drain

Posted by chris on October 3rd, 1999 01:51 AM

I can't stand the location of my washer/dryer. It's totally in the way of re-laying out the entire basement.

There is no drain, however, where I want to move them to. I could have a plumber jackhammer up 25 feet of concrete- if I can even get a plumber with the overheated economy...or..

I was wondering if there was or I could make a sump system of some sort. Or even if the washer itself could operate ok with about a 6' head. Am I nuts? They have toilets that essentially flush upward, and that would seem to be a much more, uh, solid problem if you get my drift.

PS: this isn't something I dare screw up, or the wife will have my head. But if it works, it will cut that entire 25 feet off her laundry trips, so I'll be a hero.
