    My second post :D

    I am redoing my bathroom. When I completed conneting the the drain for the toilet and checked it: It is more than 1/4 inch per foot.

    Distance from toilet to stack is approx 36 inches, and the total drop over this distance from toilet to stack is about 2 inches.

    Will this be ok over that short distance?

    Thank you for the help

    That amount of slope would be fine over any distance.
