PVC cap end sizes


PVC cap end sizes

Will a Holman 32mm Press PVC Cap End fit onto a Holman 32mm Class 12 PVC Pressure Pipe, I was reading the reviews and one customer said that it was too big and they had to buy a smaller one. Should I buy a size down?

Re: PVC cap end sizes

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @sugachim1310. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question on pipe sizes.


The 32mm pressure pipe cap is designed to suit 32mm pressure pipe. I'd suggest you purchase the 32mm cap.


The review you've read states, "I actually purchased the 32mm pvc end cap to seal the end of a 40mm pvc pipe". I'm not sure what is going on there, but it sounds like they are putting pressure caps inside standard PVC. They do say, "the 40mm Holman end cap is a very loose fit", but don't mention the 32mm being an incorrect size. I was in-store two days ago matching up 32mm and 40mm pipes and didn't have any issue with anything being too loose.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
