I bought the 8" pipe. My heating element is about 11" long. Also changed out one of the tees for a cross so I can drain it easily - and got a couple of nylon barbed hose nipples.

New parts continue to roll in. Here's the order from McMaster

There are DIN rail terminal blocks and 1" SS lock nuts. I also received an assortment of 60 10mm LEDs ordered off e-bay. These things are huge and bright. They should make good status indicators. Also not shown: end caps and bridges for the terminal blocks and 10mm LED panel bezels.

Those LEDs are so big, man, they look the ghosts that eat Pac-Man.

Looks like FedEx ground is putting in the OT on Saturday. They just dropped off my order of breakers and DIN rail from Automation direct.

I like the idea of putting a cross on one end for cleaning/drying purposes. I'm putting quick disconnects on mine instead of straight hose barbs. I don't plan on mounting it permanently to my brew stand. Rather, I thought I would build a little stand for it to rest in while in use. After using it, I can disconnect it and turn it upside down to drain and dry.
