How much slope do you need for a drain pipe from a new bathroom and what do you do if there isn't enough slope?

One quarter inch per foot is standard "slope". This equates to a quarter bubble on a level. If you don't have at least one eighth of an inch "slope", your drain will not work properly and will clog constantly.
