Plumbing pitch is the amount of fall you have on your waste. All waste, not on a pump system, has to have fall toward the destination of the waste (septic tank, sewer, etc.) The pitch is basically a downhill tilt of the pipe it requires to drain the liquid and solid waste from the pipe utilizing gravity. standard fall on a waste pipe is 1/8 of an inch per foot. the reasoning behind this is that your solid waste runs with your liquid waste minimizing clogs and optimizing drainage.
