What they're talking about is there's no way to answer your question. The pipe could be one of several sizes.

PVC should not be used in a pressurized line, it's made for drains.
No one here can see what size it.
Measure it.

I think that's what we are saying.

what service are you talking about? you may need to measure outside diameter to determine. or call the utility. I'm guessing its water, but your community may be like mine with many varied water pipe sizes. There are different monthly charges for different pipe sizes so here, it may be standard for 3/4 meter ( thats mine ) but it could be different.

Just curious, what are you needing pipe size for?
