What's this trap for? I've heard you east coasters use the term house trap, is that what it is?

Every building in new york has a house trap. I actually can not believe it isnt code every where. It keeps municipal gasses from entering the residence. As well as a good spot to looks for lost diamond rings....

I can believe it isn't code everywhere. Sewer gas is sewer gas regardless if it's everyone's from the city main or your personal dwelling. When was the code created for a house trap? Maybe it's old code verbiage that may just be time to let go, but understandably you have to follow. To my understanding if your dwv is installed correct, that is why EVERY drain outlet goes to a trap. That's what those traps are for. Seems to me house traps may be more problematic then useful. (Build up, rot, drain flow, home owner or drain cleaner not tightening c.o. plugs back in properly letting sewer gas in defeating the purpose)

Standpipe riser for laundry seems too short.
Some will say check valves operate better and with longevity if installed on the side. Is it installed correctly though? Also, why a Frickin check valve on your laundry drain where scum and lint and build up will occur the most?
You had to a.a.v. the laundry? How is that a.a.v. connected to that 2" pipe? Couldn't tie the vent in above?
Laundry hose not fastened into standpipe riser. Only on Wall is fastened.
Looks like a retarded tree going to fall over if you blow on it. More hangers please.
If that 4" or 3" vertical drain is a stack, then your distance is to close to your house trap. Hydraulic jump right into that bugger. Not your dry vent stack.

My code also states laundry standpipe can't be more than 4' off floor the washing machine sits on. Not stand pipes in general, just a.c.w's. Your code must be different

With your previous drain pictures with unnecessary horse shoe designs, this one may have been a candidate to pipe horse shoe design.
