    Re: plumbing design in high rise

    Wow..48"...thats a few fixture units.
    Back then they wiped them too.
    As for the water system on a high-rise...there's also the booster/tank method...apparently there are a variety of methods as chatted about earlier in this post.
    The whole dynamic of a single stack all the way down dozens of stories is amazing to me that if the stack where maxed by a coincidental filling from a large number of fixtures it would still manage to "doughnut" and slow the fall.
    There are those times I look back and wish I gone engineering.

      It takes a story or two to pull the waste
      so when a toilet is flushed it will fall a short distance
