      Does anyone have information on the specifications of type M 3/4 inch residential copper water pipe(red label). After buying them at two different places I have found out they have different thickness and different weights. It seems to me the pipe should have the same specs regardless where made.

      Maximum OD 0.876″
      Minimum OD 0.874″

      Research ASTM B-88 for actual standards
