In plumbing, pitch refers to the slope or incline of a pipe relative to the horizontal plane. It’s essential for drainage systems to have the right pitch to ensure that water and waste flow effectively towards the desired outlet, such as a sewer line or a drainage system. The pitch allows gravity to assist in the movement of water, preventing standing water and potential blockages.

Typically, the pitch is measured in units of rise over a specified length of pipe, such as inches per foot. Proper pitch ensures efficient drainage and helps maintain the integrity and functionality of plumbing systems.
