venting washing machine drain
i have a question regarding venting a washing machine drain.
would like to create a laundry area ideally in a small storage area or in my closet (last resort). i have no washer hookups currently. its for an ground floor apartment in a 2 story building and has a crawl space.
a plumber said to be done under code, he'd have to run a drain vent thru the plaster on the first and second floor to vent thru the roof.
is it possible to tie the washing machine drain vent to either the bathroom or kitchen drain vent via the crawl space and still be legal and safe? i plan to get a front loading water efficient machine.
