Sleeving 2.5" Pipe?

Unread postAuthor: EphOph » Thu Oct 23, 2008 8:17 pm

Hello, I was wondering what 2.5" pipe sleeves into. Judging by some pictures, it looks like 3" SCH80 but I would like to make sure before I go and buy a 10' length of it.

Also, do SDR and SCH classes of pipe share the same outer diameter?

it appears he is right! 2 1/2" SDR 21 has roughly the same OD and the ID of 3" SCH 80

DYI - Thanks, that helps a bunch.

My local plastic pipe distributor sells SCH 40 and 80 in all sizes from 1/2" to 12" (and beyond that for special orders) and most common fittings in both gray and white (even some sizes in clear I think). They are they only supplier of NSF-PW in town and they sell pipe in 10' sections only. No SDR sizes though, I have to make a road trip to Michigan for that.
