Best option for fitting appliance drain hose to trap

Postby km0508 » Thu Dec 15, 2022 10:08 pm

Hi, I have an appliance waste hose I would like to connect via wash hand basin waste. The existing trap has no capability to do this, so looking for advice on what the best approach would be.

As you might see from the pictures, the appliance (dryer) waste hose comes in through the he in the wall. Appliance is situated other side of the wall.

Maybe we need to replace the trap with a different type, or there could be another better way? Any advice appreciated.

Btw, advertised this as a job on two different sites and no one was interested. Maybe this is such a small job it's hardly worth anyone's time, so thought I'd try get some advice and see whether I could do myself.

Hi km0508,
It looks like the 1 1/4 basin waste has been adapted to 1 1/2, if this is correct, have a look at the mcalpine wm2 P trap, this may be a straight swap but it depends on the relative position of the outlet to waste nut.
