A simple question that is often asked by workers in the pipe industries. Now here’s a simple answer: How to measure the diameter of a pipe.
- Clean the pipe off.
- Get a quality diameter tape measure.
- Wrap it around the pipe, snuggly, to give the shortest value.
- Make sure the side with the diameter scale is showing.
- Read the diameter on the scale that is at the zero mark at the beginning of the scale.
There is the simple answer, because the process really is that simple. Now you can show off by finding the diameter of a telephone pole, a tree, a radiator hose, a pencil, and a tire.
