    Product is Versa-Lok if it matters. I'm looking at a wall that will be built into a slope, over the course of 40' or so we will probably step up the base 6+ times. If you can picture a foundation garage 10' below sill grade with a driveway sloping up to grade. My question is how do I run the pipe with all the base change? Do I just set it on a diagonal and daylight out the face as close to the foundation as possible?

    If i understand you, the water should naturally run down hill along the wall also. You are building up hill correct or did i misunderstand.
