What is the perfect main sewer drop per ft.
Posted by Rick Wilkinson on June 03, 2001 at 22:42:27:
I own 2.5 acres and I am in the planning stages of putting a house on it. There is a sewer tap on the down hill side of the property but I am concerned that I may have problems with it. The area I am building the house on only has a drop of about a foot. But from there for about 300 feet it drops off steadily all the way to the end of the property. The drop is between a 1/4" to 1/2" per foot. I have been told by my Dad that he has heared that the water will outrun the solids and cause problems. I have planned to put a cleanout ever 100' or so. Do you feel this drop will cause problems
