Pipe diameter in residential housing


Are there any standard pipe sizes in residential housing or is the only way to know for sure to cut out a section and measure the hole?

Pipes are sized according to the fixtures they serve. The pipe O.D. varies depending on the material such as cast iron, copper, galv. steel, plastic, etc. So if you can't recognize the size, take a piece to someone who knows.
