So You Want to Move Your Washing Machine

During a remodel you may find yourself wanting to relocate your washer and dryer to a different place in your home.

Here are some things to consider:

If you aren’t moving the existing set too far, then you might be able to use the same pipes although you will still need a new set up for the washer.

Should you move your washer more than a few feet, or to another room, you’ll likely need to install new pipes. Be sure to cap off the old pipes in the event you choose to use them in the future for something else.

It’s a good idea to consult with a professional plumber prior to moving your washer on your own to ensure that you’ve got all the information you need before starting.
