Zero Slope Drain


Has anyone ever heard of a Zero Slope Drain? I have seen references online, but I can not find any details.

I need 10' of zero slope. If I can not get it, I am unsure what I'll do.

Zero Slope Drain


Anytime I've seen zero slope or uphill it required the use of a pump.

Zero Slope Drain


The only zero slope I have heard of is referring to trenches. Doubt that is what you are talking about. All the Plumbing Codes I have worked under specify 1/8 to 1/4" per foot slope. Unless you have a pump of course.
