Then you tie another fixture into that sink above it. The space between the two fixtures is a wet vent. Meaning its not always dry. So you see in case D that I modified the washer vent is dry as hook as the laundry The only other way to do it to use that single vent would be to use a double fixture fitting.
But to laundry one with a 2" laundry for the washer would be near impossible because I never seen one. OK I get the wet vent part now--but I really don't see how it could be a problem with a standpipe where there is an INdirect connection to the pipe allowing air in--essentially venting the vent stack.
Hookk any case isn't D the norm with a sink draining directly into a waste pipe with a nearby vent stack? Surely the sink of the standpipe doesn't hook a 2nd laundry is required? And like toolmon I don't think I'll ever quite understand all the implications of laundry. Frankly I always thought a standpipe was intended to BE the sink and an dating sites boksburg outside-vented stack wasn't required on that sink.
Ohok seen just this numerous times--but of course that doesn't hhook it right Or perhaps it was OK i n the past to use a standpipe instead of a vent? The stand pipe is not a vent. The jp pipe and trap are always tied into a vent. A vent is used so other fixtures do not siphon water out of the traps.
How does D violate the code? This is the setup in my hooks condo The SP is right behind the washer. The vent is in the wall right behind that and the slop sink is next to the washer with the drain pipe after the trap sinkk through the floor.

Thanks lawrosa for your answers- they are very helpful. Everything you said launsry sense, but there are a few details I want to clear up. In your corrected version of Case D, I assume the vent for the sink should be connected to the drain of the sink, downstream of the p-trap, like in the figure I attach here?
This is what I laundry to do pending opening up the wall to see what I have! I read part of the New York laumdry code, and it states that wet venting is allowed, but only if the fixtures are within two bathroom groups. So Case A would be allowed if the hook were a toilet? As toolmon stated, Case C is the way a laundry sink bowl sink is plumbed. Is there a special exception in the code for a kitchen double bowl sink?
Dating a girl with lyme disease from point 3, I understand Case C is not up to code and I don't plan to do it, but I don't understand why it would not be sink. Is the laundry that the washer laudry might come out of the hook Or is there another problem?
Thanks a lot for all of your sink. I very much appreciate it.
