|In response to Re: depth under slab|
: Conventional wisdom dictates a slope of 1/4" per foot. So among the factors is the length of the run. Often, you'll find the DWV about 12 inches below the surface of the slab. Sometimes more, othertimes, less.
: You will need to support the (sloping) pipes through stakes, gravel, etc. You then pour the concrete over the gravel bed that typically covers the DWV pipes.
: Typical is 4 inches of gravel followed by 4 inches
: : : How deep below the slab must I run the DWV piping? I'd like to cut it as close as practicable so I can get the extra headroom we need in the basement.
don't forget the plastic wrap around teh DWV to isolate copper from teh concrete
