Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

If I am to install a sewr line at 33% slope , How many inches must i slope at 100' intervals?

At 400' sloping 33% would equal how many inches from my original / starting point?

The drop (slope) on a sewer line is required to be min. 1/8" per foot to max. 1/4" per foot. That would be 12.5" min. to 25" max. per 100 feet

I don't think you really want 33% slope, but it would be 33 feet drop every 100 feet of run.
