 Wed Jul 28, 2010 Post  #1 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear shabbir               In general cases maximum diameter of rain water pipe is 4'' because this dia pipe easly embeded in the 9'' thick wall during masonary. In case official or commercial building when length of building is more and non availabilty of 9'' or 13.5'' wall due to design. than rainwater is drained through duct with the help of 6'' dia pipe. Fix at least 6 nos 4'' dia RWP.
