    Hi hj,
    yes, 2% is the "1/4inch per foot" minimum that is required. I'm digging up a lot, and have more then enough room to make up that 3/4" difference.

    My main concern was that should the...

    Thanks Terry.
    I'll be waiting for the glue to be well set before dropping it in the whole. But its good to hear that I wont have to worry about it. Its my main waste line, so I want to leave it...

    Hi, does anyone want to take a stab at this?
    Despite all the information, I really only have three questions.
    1) In pic3, the circled San-T should be a WYE or a long sweep combo right? San-T's...

    Fair question.
    Short story... there is clay drain tiles along one wall for sure.

    Long storey... But I found out about the exterior drain tiles the hard way. I had a crack in my foundation that...

    "retro fit"?

    Sure, but it must have been done a long time ago. That cast iron looks as corroded as the main waste pipe. It looks to me like it was supposed to take care of any water under the...

    Right. that is how it "should" be done. And all the constructions in our area for many years have two city ties in. One tie in for storm sewers(for floor drains, footing drain tiles and street...

    Thanks for the response hj.
    Sorry for not providing better pics, but I got tired of breaking up concrete. I gave the concrete wet saw and jack hammer back to my buddy last week, so now all I have...

    hj, why do you say its overkill? Because both vents run all the way to the ceiling instead of 42" (or 6" above the fixtures)? I'm probably mixing multiple plumbing standards...

    no worries. I was just joking around. Everyone has their own jobs and life... and it was friday. I think its great that people take the time to help answer questions on forums like this.
