# Is there metric PVC pipe?

## Is there metric PVC pipe?

Unlike its imperial (inch) cousin, the metric PVC pipe system is measured on and accords to the precise outside diameter of the pipe. Like most things metric, it is a more logical and easier to understand system. That is to say, a 50mm metric pipe will measure 50mm outside diameter, a 63mm will measure 63mm etc.

Do they make metric pipe fittings?

Metric adapters may include both a male end and a female end, two male ends, or two female ends. Regardless of the combination, you can expect one end to feature a standard thread and the other end to feature a metric thread. This allows you to connect pipes with standard threads to pipes with metric threads.

How do I know if my threads are metric or imperial?

Metric threads are measured by their pitch. That is the distance from the crest of one thread to the crest of the next measured in millimetres. The pitch of a metric thread can be checked by direct measurement with a metric rule. Imperial threads have their pitch measured indirectly as a given number of teeth per inch.
