Although, that being said. Plastic piping must be kept out of the sun (UV-rays melt or bend pipe), so that is why it is always installed underground, metal pipe above ground, or cast-iron pipe
The lifetime of abs is similar to cast-iron, I would say depending on installation (not installed on rock(s), but sand or rather on dirt), 40-50+ years is the minimum life expectancy.
And hopefully also that we don't get a major earthquake like the one that occurred a while back in Japan, 9.0 on the Richter Scale. maybe we should say a little prayer that it doesn't occur in S.D. California. Remembering, That We live on what is called the San Andreas Fault Line.
Actually I have on occasion removed sewer piping (cast iron piping) 70-80 years old which was still some what usable. (Unlike Clay Pipe, Which was incredibly still in pretty good shape, so maybe we should switch to Clay Materials, just kidding).
Plumber San Diego always tries to check grade (the pitch or the fall or called the drop) with a torpedo level Code says 1/4" of an inch per foot for 3" abs piping, and 1/8" of an inch for 4" inch abs piping.
Which I always try to use the 1/4" of inch grade or drop per foot. Plumber San Diego also Recommends to check your local San Diego Plumbing Repair Building Requirements before doing any installation.
On occasion if your not able to use the 1/4" drop, the most important thing to remember is to always have a drop, (a grade, a fall).
Using street fittings or using a santee on its back as a vent only if that is the only way that it can be done, depending on the situation or a Wye and a 45 for the toilet (of course that being because the toilet is the one with the biggest fittings).
And so which is your biggest drop for pulling a measurement, or for laying out for a rough-in measurement for a new construction plumbing project.
Plumber San Diego always recommends to call a professional for any Plumbing Repair, to do the work.

Effecting Permanent Change, (The TRUTH ABOUT YOU!) And Releasing The LIE
I have been studying Psychology for 10 to 15 years, by that I mean I went to
Southwestern college 3 years, with my major in Psychology and (Pre-Law), Adult schools 4 years, And have gone to 40 to 50 seminars on Psychology, and N.L.P. Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Anthony Robbins and others.
Oh and THE Law of Attraction for 3 years, (For WHATEVER YOU FOCUS ON IS WHAT YOU WILL ATTRACT.) So THINK GREAT THOUGHT'S!! Effecting Permanent Change, (The TRUTH ABOUT YOU!) And Release The LIE. PRACTICE GIVING FOCUS YOUR MIND ON SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE, Make room for the good by letting go of the bad.
Plumber San Diego Asks, WHAT are the QUESTIONS YOU ASK YOUSELF??
The main thing here is realizing WHAT are the QUESTIONS YOU ASK YOUSELF,
(your self-talk). When your in a NEGATIVE STATE.
For instance do you say I am a loser? I am a bad boy/girl? SEE it is at this moment(basically called self-control) that you have to BECOME aware of your THOUGHT'S (your self-talk). And INSTEAD say you are a LOVING PERSON and A KIND PERSON. And ASK YOURSELF THE RIGHT QUESTION(S).
QUESTION? WHAT DO I HAVE TO “BELIEVE ABOUT MYSELF” FOR
THIS TO CHANGE??_ ONCE AGAIN!! WHAT “BELIEF” DO
I HAVE TO CHANGE, IN ORDER FOR THIS TO CHANGE??_SEE IT IS IN CHANGING THESE
EMBEDDED PROGRAMS (IN OUR SUBCONCIOUS) or BELIEF SYSTEM WERE WE HAVE TO CHANGE,
TO EFFECT PERMANET CHANGE!
There was a Powerful writer by the name of Napoleon Hill That said “WHATEVER
THE MIND OF MAN CAN CONCEIVE and BELEVE IT CAN ACHIEVE!” And also A Man by The Name of Henry Ford, Said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do
a thing, you're right”.
So Why not Dream big Dreams AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF And others. SEE THE
BOTTOM LINE IS YOU CAN BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND OR YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY!!
