Most pros have a menthod or work around to conquer all the odd situations that they run in to. But every once in a while its good to take a refresher course, or investigate a new way of doing things with a specialty tool or exotic technique. Therefore, Swanson(R) has compiled a list of project and tool tips for review. stop by and take a look at the list of project and tool tips… or better yet, submit one of your own.

Installing proper plumbing drains call for a minimum 2% grade of slope. The Swanson® multiple ring vials offer an easy way to approximately determine the correct needed slope.
When the outside edge of the bubble touches the second ring of the vial it is measuring an approximate 1/8″ slope over 1 foot of run, which is a 2% grade.
When the bubble touches the third ring it is measuring an approximate 1/4″ of slope over 1 foot of run, which is a 4% grade.
Please check with your municipality to make sure your design complies with all building codes.
