Question DetailsAsked on 8/19/2013

How much should it cost to install a washer/dryer unit, including drain pain in a condo building?

I need to hire a plumber who can create a custom drain pan and install a laundry unit (stacked washer/dryer, all one piece) in my condo. I appreciate any estimates of cost so that I can have an idea if I am being quoted fare prices. The one plumber I called could not estimate cost of drain pan even when I gave them measurements of the unit. Thank you!

Why go custom pan, which could cost seeral hundred $ and would probably be sharp metal - for $50-100 you can buy a variety of sizes of plastic pans, including ones to fit most standard washers, including stacked and roll-around - google this phrase - washer drain pan cost

Figure $150-200 or so to install drain for the pan and the units, assuming you have washer dryer connections already there.

If no existing connections, then could be from about $300-1000+ depending on where he has to bring pipes from and to and whether accessible from the ceiling below installation area.

One alternative to a drain pan - not as positive a protection, but could be combined with a pan without drain hole, is a water alarm shutoff valve - electric valves on the water feed pipes that only allow water to flow when the washer is pulling electricity, and automatically shuts off if the water detector on the floor or in the pan detects water - costs about $150-200 with names like Floodstop or Watts. This protects against significant flooding due to hose break or washer leak or overflow.
