Revit could not find a matching Pipe Segment in Default pipe type

Every time I try to start a pipe by clicking the connector on an air handler, I get the message:


"Revit could not find a matching Pipe Segment in Default pipe type. Please check the Default pipe type's routing preferences."


The connectors have a radius set to 1" so the pipe should come out 2".  When I click the connector however it always goes to 2 1/2" so I manually have to change it to 2".  And then once I click to place the segment of pipe, I get the message.  I've checked Segments and Sizes in the Routing Preferences and there is a 2" and 2 1/2" size both listed.  Any idea why I'm getting this error?

Under Mechanical Settings » Pipe Settings » Segments and Sizes, make sure that you're looking at the sizes for the proper Pipe Segment type - make sure the value of the "Segment:" pull-down matches listed under the desired Pipe Type's Routing Preferences. Each type of Segments has it's own Size Catalog.
