# What size PVC fitting do I need?

## What size PVC fitting do I need?

A 1″ fitting will fit on a 1″ pipe, regardless of whether either one is schedule 40 or 80. So, while a 1″ socket fitting has an opening wider than 1″ across, it will fit on a 1″ pipe because the OD of that pipe is also greater than 1″. There may come a time when you want to use a PVC fitting with non-PVC pipe.

## What is the outside diameter of a 2 1/2 PVC coupling?

Schedule 40 PVC Pipe Dimensions Chart

Nominal Pipe Size O.D. Min. Wall
2-1/2″ 2.875 .203

3-1/2″ 4.000 .226
4″ 4.500 .237

## Can PVC shrink?

PVC material usually has 1.5% shrinkage. In some applications, PVC pipes have to be subjected to a heating-cooling cycle. In this particular condition, considerably high values of shrinkage have been obtained. The scale of shrinkage can reach 31% of its initial extrusion length, which is a striking figure!

## How is PVC size measured?

Look at the end of a piece of PVC pipe. Find the widest point across the opening. Measure from the outside edge of the pipe to the opposite outside edge. This measurement is the outside diameter or “OD” of the pipe.

## What is difference between schedule 40 and 80 PVC?

Each one has its benefits in different applications. Schedule 40 pipe has thinner walls, so it is best for applications involving relatively low water pressure. Schedule 80 pipe has thicker walls and is able to withstand higher PSI (pounds per square inch). This makes it ideal for industrial and chemical applications.
