A pipe size chart contains valuable information about the physical dimensions for different plastic pipes. The plastic pipe sizes range from 1/8 inch up to 24 inches.
The PVC size chart uses the inside diameter of a pipe as the default metric used to identify pipes. The table contains vital information such as the wall thickness and rigid pipe pressure per square inch. Some pipes can differ in inside diameter and wall thickness, so it's a good idea to consider a margin of error of 2 percent to 5 percent when measuring plastic pipe sizes. The chart also includes the outside diameter of the pipes for each pipe.
