A Samsung washing machine will empty into a utility sink that is outfitted with a drain pump. The purpose of the drain pump is to elevate the waste water into an existing drain pipe in the ceiling. Said drain pipe is 20 feet from the washing machine. There is no drain in the room.
The Goal: prevent discharge water from flooding the room in the event of a pump failure.
The drain pump will be attached to a utility sink. I would like to size the utility sink so that if the drain pump fails and the washing machine discharges water, that the utility sink will not overflow. The leading sink candidate is a 36 gallon utility sink.
If the machine water usage is significantly larger than any tub, then a feedback (electric float) may be an option to shutdown washing machine should the pump fail.
If your experience indicates I am not asking the right question and you have a suggestion, please indicate and I can pose a new question. Thank you
In the absence of a technical specification, is there a rule of thumb to estimate the amount of water discharged in a wash cycle?
