The lowest point in the basement needs a floor drain. I’ve also planned it to be in the same spot as the new laundry tub. I marked off the areas where the appliances will ultimately sit. Then, I used a jackhammer to perforate the basement floor to add an underground drain trench.
I excavated the trench to make way for the new underground drain pipe. This will meet up with the existing floor drain near the furnace and water heater.
