    I know it's 1 1/4" because I bought a 1" coupler and a 1 1/4" coupler thinking I might use them to fix the thing. There's no way the 1" coupler would go onto this line.

    I also know because about...

    Nearly punctured a 1 1/4" copper line

    So, I've got a bit of a problem. While putting up some tile backer I accidentally drilled through a sole plate and hit a 1 1/4" copper pipe with a screw. As soon as I hit it I knew what happened...
