wahser/laundry room overflow tub

Just installed a new from load washer with base. I would like to put a tub under it with a drain should the washer leak. can anyone recommend a tub manufacturer that will allow for the bottom drawer on the base to open? I found one ****** made by driptite. Would I be better off having a local sheet metal company build me one?

Re: wahser/laundry room overflow tub

A catch pan under a fixture or an appliance is only effective if you empty it before it's full, unless it has a drain that is working properly.

Personally, I haven't seen such pans under a washing machines, even though I've seen washing machines that leak. Installing one of those, and deciding on the type of pan - that's up to you.

IMHO, it's not a necessity.
