    I would think it depends on how far away the object is that your trying to hit. Urinals are the easiest.

    there is no code for sloping refrigeration piping(according to the international mechanical code). It is installed per manufacture's instructions which are different from company to company.

    On Trane RAUC split systems 20-120 tons.

    *Slope suction lines toward the evaporator 1/4 to 1" for every 10 feet.

    *Slope liquid lines away from the condensing unit 1" for every 10 feet.
