Pics will be coming this weekend. As for the 1", my element barely fit in the 2" pvc. Had to do some finagling. Might fit in a 1-1/2"...

Are you using a stanadard 1500 watt element? In order to get them to fit in a 1" copper pipe, you have to give the end a few whacks with a hammer and then make sure the middle isn't touching. It slides right in then. I've built close to 20 of them this way.
