I need to add a sink to my shop which is a converted garage. The garage is 2 feet lower than the main house with a one story family room between the house and garage. the sewer stack is in the main part of the house. I don't have enough pitch to run it through the house. I need to run it outside and under a deck and crawl space and done 3 feet under ground. My question is can I run it on top of the ground with out it freezing in the winter. The distance will be ruffly 25'. If I can't it means digging a ditch in a 2" crawl.

You have to find the frost line in your area and if that is a problem you can always use sewerage ejector to pump the waste up hill.

The piping if explosed will freeze
