Question about Washing Machines
Installing my Washer in basement, the drain comes down the wall off of the main sewer line and stops half way down the wall, has a threaded fitting, and was trying to figure out if the washer connects to the with a pipe barb and clamp the drain hose to that, I have never seen a hook up like this before, got me thinking about it, don't know by looking at it, and don't know if the washer pump will lift that far?
The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).

You will need a non return valve so the dirty water does non go back into the machine ?? if you are able to rig up a pipe you can see how much your machine can lift the water and how high
