Pipe sizes

No, not a drip system. I have popup heads with 1/2" poly tubing going to them. I wanted to move one and I went to Lowes. There were (2) barb connectors both both labeled 1/2" and they were different sizes. Quoted from "Wet_Boots" If it's drip irrigation you have in mind, it's easier to think metric. There is 16mm tubing and there is 17mm tubing. Try to stay with the 17mm size.

Pipe sizes

I was at Lowes looking for 1/2" tubing. It appears that there are (2) 1/2" tubing sizes. One appeared to have a .500 ID and the other a .600 ID. Also (2) 1/2" barbed connector are available one for each of the (2) tubing sizes. What is the deal with this? It causes compatibility issues.
