In response to Re: Exterior Sewer Line
The pitch is at least 1/8" per foot. And if the faucets do not leak, then freezing will not be a factor. But a leaking faucet will gradually build up an interior coating of ice which could block the drainage. Covering the pipe and insulating it would help minimize that problem but also make it harder to thaw if it were to occur.

: I have recently added a bathroom to the second level of our home. Is it practical and or possible to run my 4" sewer line out through a side-wall then across (horizontal) and down to connect to the sewer line. I would need approximately 20' horizontal run which will be on the exterior of the house under a second story deck. If I can what is proper pitch and are freezing temperatures an issue.
