What angle should sewer pipe be?

The plumbing code requires drain pipe to be sloped at a minimum of 1/2 inch per foot and a maximum of three inches per foot or vertical. A slope of less than a quarter-inch per foot will cause a lot of drain clogs and a slope of more than three inches will allow the water to drain.
