|In response to Re: Cast iron horizontal sewer pipe.|
You are going to want to slope that horizontal pipe at 1/4 inch per foot. Then when you get to the stack it's best to create a sweeping motion with elbow fittings that run into the stack.
Does this kitchen drain run into the stack using a wye connector or a tee? Running a drain pipe at a large slant avoiding appropriate elbow fittings, etc, is not code.
: I am thinking of cutting the cast iron and using the rubber couplers that Ed mentioned to bring in the new PVC.
: I have a question for Ed, though. The horizontal part is about 8 feet. Should I make it so that there is a slant? Or should I just use 2 90 degree elbows like it is now?
