Secondly, what is the inside diameter of 1.5 inch PVC pipe? (PETERSEN DOES NOT SELL PIPE)

PVC and CPVC Pipes - Schedule 40
Nominal Pipe Size (inches) Outside Diameter (inches) Minimum Wall Thickness (inches)

Beside above, what is the inside diameter of 1 1/2 PVC pipe?

The OD for 1/2" PVC pipe is 0.840" and the OD for 3" PVC pipe is 3.500". If the nominal size is the ID, then that means 1/2" PVC pipe walls are . 170" thick and 3" PVC pipe walls are 0.250" thick. The wall thickness continues increasing as the pipe gets larger.

How do you find the inside diameter of a pipe?

Subtract the doubled thickness from the total diameter to calculate the internal diameter. Doing so removes the object walls from your measurement, leaving only the space between them. In our 40-inch pipe example, the 40-inch diameter includes 4 inches of pipe wall that needs to be removed.

Is nominal pipe size the inner diameter?

Nominal pipe size refers to only the outside diameter (OD) of a pipe making it somewhat vague. For example, when we say pipe size is 2 NPS, it refers to all the pipes having 2.375-inch (or 60.3 mm) as outside diameter irrespective of wall thickness and thus the inside diameter.

How do you measure pipe size?

Measure the Outside Diameter (OD) of your pipe or pipe fitting:
  1. Wrap a string around the pipe.
  2. Mark the point where the string touches together.
  3. Use a ruler or measuring tape to find the length between the tip of the string and the mark you made (circumference)
  4. Divide the circumference by 3.14159.

Is PVC measured by ID or OD?

PVC Pipe is identified by the ID (Inside Diameter) and is referred to as a "nominal" size which means "in name only."

What is the difference between Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 pipe?

Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 pipes have the main difference of sizing and diameter. A schedule 80 pipe has a thicker wall even though its exterior diameter is similar to a schedule 40 pipe. Having the same outside diameter is possible because the extra thickness of a schedule 80 PVC is inside the pipe.

What does Schedule 40 PVC mean?

Wall Thickness
Schedule 80 pipe is designed with a thicker wall. This means the pipe is thicker and stronger, and as a result it can handle higher pressures. You are probably most familiar with schedule 40 PVC pipe. Schedule 40 PVC pipe is strong, rigid, and can handle pressure applications.
