I have a 20' x 24' cabin with the septic on one end of the 20' section. To run the sewage and gray water pipe what is the general rule of thumb for the slope of the pipes to the main septic pipe?

Thanks,

Jim

From 3" - 6" diameter 1/8th in per foot would be minimum BUT the average we try to use would be 1/4" per foot

To confirm, then over 24', I would need a slope of 6"? If I had one full bathroom and kitchen sink/dishwasher would I need a vent pipe to the roof for each drain location or only need one? If only one should I place it farthest away from the septic, closer to septic or in between?

Thanks,

Jim
