    I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are asking what the fall is on a 100' waste line it would depend on what it's grade is. At 1/4" per foot it would be 25". At an 1/8" per foot it would be 12.5".

        Re: rise

        You are under the IPC so it would be an 1/8" per foot.

                Formula: (from my peanut brain, atleast) 100ft x .125 = 12.5"

                .125= 1/8"/ft.

                or......crack a bubble.

                      You should change your occupation title.

                          The original poster should. I guess we can't know everything but I can't remember a "plumber" not knowing that for their area.

                            I was talking about the original poster, so we agree.
