Vacuum Pipe is a Different Size to Plumbing Pipe

Central vacuum pipe is a different size to plumbers pipe. Vacuum pipe is 2″ diameter, whereas plumbing pipe is 50mm. The different sizes are because central vacuum systems originated in America and Canada and they use imperial measurement (inches). Plumbing pipe is a metric measurement so not compatible central vacuum fittings and wall inlets.
