Sewer Tie IN


We built an addition and need to do the sewer tie in. Does anyone know the slope the pipe needs to be in the City of Houston?

What size is the pipe. Say 4" for example, then 2%. I am not quoting city of Houston standards but just typically methodology.

I am certain the building inspector or plumbing inspector knows the required slope, perhaps you could call them.
