drain slope

Hi Guys,

Can you tell me the required slope for a kitchen sink drain? Also is there a slope required for a vent?

The builder ran the drain and vent through 2.5 inch holes drilled in five 2X4s in a load bearing wall. I don't like that and plan to move the drain and vent and double up the 2X4s.

drain slope

Slope drain to 1/4" per foot, here vent can be flat.
Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
