Default Quick question about washer boxes

What's the minimum to max height for washer box drain measured from the floor to the drain? It's been so long since I put one in and can't find my GD codebook to save my life. IPC or UPC standard is good they might be the same just not sure

Thanks

The answer to your question should be in your code book. At least it is in mine (UPC).

The Stand pipe it’s self is supposed to be no less than 18” no more than 30”

The laundry box can’t be more than 43” off finish floor, something like that in UPC land.
