it doesn’t give the exact length of each tube, just the tube and corner piece combined.

I’d recommend using the field cad file (if you have a supported cad program) to measure it.

Looking at the “Diameter 2.4” annotation in that screenshot, and consulting this webpage, I would guess that the pipe is 2" nominal schedule 40 (2" sch. 80 has the same outer diameter but is more expensive and not necessary for this application).

As for the length, opening the field CAD file as @Nerdom suggested would work, but a simpler way would be to measure it based on that screenshot, either using a program like NIH ImageJ (more info here), or just a ruler and some math.
