1" PVC Pipe Under Foundation

I am building an outdoor BBQ. I have been digging out a foundation and there is a 1" PVC pipe running under the proposed area. It supplies water to the rear irrigation system. I cannot move it as there is a patio one side, pool deck to the other and house wall on the other (triangular area). The pipe is 10" underground.

There will be 4" of soil over it, plus 2" of gravel, then a 4" foundation. Will the pipe be able to stand the weight?

Shouldnt be a problem but i would add a "sleeve" under the new slab for the future. Never know when you will need it.
