It is said that you have t have 2% grade or 1/4″ per foot fall on a 4″ sanitary line. On the level is this 1/8 bubble or 1/4 bubble?

Measure exactly to 1 foot on your level and put a mark, next cut a 1/4″ piece of cu tube, wood etc and place your level on a level surface with the 1/4″ piece at the 1 foot mark this will tell you where your bubble is for 1/4″ fall /foot

Tobes. come on, 30 years ago we used to screw a screw into the level at 2ft so that we could adjust the fall, the screw also acted as a indicator of a lip or gap when the level was pushed over the joint then we used to swab the pipe of loose cement. today we use lasers to guarantee fall. Do they have lasers in Western Australia? & what about PVC pipe?

The Golden Phone
An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the
For his first chapter he decided to write about Australian churches. So
bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Hobart,thinking that he would
his way across the country from South, East to West.
On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he
golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read “$10,000
The writer, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what
telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to
heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God. The writer thanked
priest and went along his way.
Next stop was in Melbourne. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the
same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this
the same kind of telephone he saw in Hobart and he asked a nearby nun
its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and
that for $10,000 he could talk to God.O.K., thank you,” said the writer.
He then traveled to Sydney,Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, and
Springs. In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same
10,000 per call” sign under it.
The American, upon leaving Alice Springs saw a sign for Perth and
see if Westerners had the same phone. He arrived in Perth, and again,
was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read
The writer was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. Father,
travelled all over Australia and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in
many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in
state the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?”
The priest smiled and answered, “You’re in Western Australia now son,
