“Practically speaking, there are four different pipe diameters to work with: 1 1/2 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch,” says Beall. Mr Rooter recommends staying away from 1 1/4 inch because its small diameter can become easily clogged and fill with water.

“There are very complicated tables the consumer can use to help choose minimum pipe diameters, but the following simple tips will keep you out of trouble,” says the most referred and trusted plumber in Pittsburgh and Youngstown.
