Yes , they are . The confusion happens when people mix the two in common usage and when intended end usages collide . This is far more common than most would think .
Terminology is exactly that .
In the fence industry 2 1/2" pipe is a totally different thing from 2 1/2" pipe in plumbing . Same terminology , different application . Outside diameter versus inside diameter . This is only one of many examples .
Gaining clarity on these things is far more important than the argument over who is right and who is wrong .
