Rerouting a Sewer Pipe

Rerouting the sewer line coming from a toilet is not an easy job, but may be necessary if you are planning a bathroom remodel. The most important thing to consider when relocating a toilet is maintaining the slope necessary to carry waste out of the home. At minimum, 1/8 inch of slope per foot is needed, though 1/4 inch per foot (1 inch of fall for every 4 feet of straight pipe) is recommended. 

Of you will be away from your home for an extended length of time during the cold months, winterizing is essential to prevent freezing and bursting pipes.
