I think iron pipe is the way to go, but use lots of pipe dope so you get a good seal, and even more importantly be able to get it apart. I like the stick that you rub onto the threads, but the paste works well also. I think it would be worth going to a good plumbing supply house and get good US made pipe (assuming you are in the US or Canada). The good stuff lasts much longer in aggressive corrosion situations. You won't get much more than a year or two out of the Home Depot stuff. Keep in mind the good stuff is significantly more expensive but I would expect it to last two to three times as long.

Good thing about iron pipe is it can be replaced quickly, cheaply and anywhere.
