bathroom pipes in cement floor


What are the slope measurements in inches per foot? And if using pvc pipe what kind of protection do they need before pouring cement?

1/4" per ft. grade.
Any pipe should not contact concrete. I like to use "sill seal" insulation. Thats the thin foam thats used on top of concrete walls under the sill plate. A couple wraps will do. secure with duct tape
