Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scenario Returning due to wrong specs.
The specs say 0.87 OD but it's much bigger and heavier. These pipes will not couple with any of my other 5-foot sections or fittings. The photos also show the ends are not threaded, but in fact they are—and the threads came all rusty. Also note that if you plan to install these pipes in any visible area, they are covered with black printing like "MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA". Not exactly something I want visible on my patio when used to conceal my security camera cables. I decided to use the much cleaner, thinner and lighter 5-foot sections from Home Depot instead. Too bad those don't come in 8-foot lengths—then I wouldn't have to couple them or cut them for my application.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Caribncwby It is NOT .87 OD!
I bought this galvanized pipe to erect a small two-way radio antenna above our barn. The adapter on the base of the mounting bracket is for 1" or smaller pipe. The Home Depot spec said .87" so we thought we were good. Checked their inventory and they had it in stock. Drove to town and bought it and brought it back out to our farm. The .87 outside diameter was too wide for the bracket to fit on it. Measured it and it was over 1". A 20 mile trip back to Home Depot with the bracket in hand resulted in them not having any 10' pipe in the actual diameter we needed. Hey, Home Depot! Please fix your specs on your website! Not all of us live right down the street from a Home Depot. Guess I should have read the reviews before I bought it, but I thought, "Who in the heck would write a review on galvanized pipe?" Now I know.

To those who say this is out of spec:
3/4" schedule 40 pipe spec says outside diameter of 1.05", which these are. The spec's on this page are mislabeled. But, they're only sold in-store, so it's not like you are buying blind. Go into the store and measure them, they meet specs.
Bought them for use with pipe clamp ends, and they work great, no issues at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DaveL Bad Spec Sheet
Home Depot needs to review the spec sheet. If the OD is in fact .87 as the sheet indicates, then it does not meet the steel pipe spec. The product can only be as good as the the site that promotes it. Hard to shop with any level of confidence when errors are not corrected (if in fact the OD is an error)

Specs for 3/4 inch steel pipe call for 1.050 inch OD. This pipe falls within that specification. I think Bill is getting 3/4 inch copper tube (7/8" OD) and steel pipe mixed up.
Don't worry about the OD.

I concur this piping is fine, I'm an amateur and the specs worked fine for me

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Wrong Outside Diameter
The specs say .87 in. outside diameter. It is closer to 1 1/16".
Just in case you're using it for its O.D. Quality of product is good.
