FYI A little Industrial History - Steel pipe today still uses iron pipe "size" designations from the early 19th century. The sizes were agreed upon back then as an Iron Pipe System or IPS. Back then pipe was made of softer iron not the steel we have today because electric welding had not been invented yet. The agreement was for an inside diameter to hold a certain amount of water and an outside diameter to fit into pipe joints. Over the years the outside diameter became more important so that old fittings would mate to new fittings as time went by. As metallugy progressed the wall thickness of the pipe was reduced but the outside diameter had to remain the same so all the fittings would work. Today, many generations later, we have several wall thicknesses of pipe for any given outside pipe size. The difference is of course on the inside. All of our pipe is schedule 40, which is pretty much standard today for gas pipe and some water pipe.
This is why when you buy 1/2" pipe it is not 1/2". The inside is actually .622" and the outside is .84". Nothing like 1/2" is it? We like to call it out the way YOU see it on the outside which is about 3/4". (Don't ask about modern tubing or high pressure pipe or stainless pipe)
