Why is a Riser Diagram Necessary?

A riser diagram communicates to the plumbing department that you know the correct size pipe to use and how to properly vent the washing machine.

The plumbing inspector doesn’t want to arrive at the job only to discover you installed pipes that are too small.

Why Does Such a Simple Job Require a Drawing?

I don’t make the rules. I can tell you that all too often a homeowner doesn’t know the correct way to install the drain and vent pipes for a washing machine.

The riser diagram acts as a plan and ensures the washing machine will drain properly so long as the pipes are installed according to the riser diagram and all local plumbing code requirements.
