    Default sewer drain pipe installation

    can some one tell me what the drop rate per foot is for running sewer pipe in floor to city connection in Ontario Canada. 1 inch drop per foot or greater or less?
    thanks

    Most of the time, it would be 1/4" per foot unless the inspector has approved a situation where 1/8" is permitted.
