which grade electrical conduit for shade structuregreenspun.com : LUSENET : Burning Man : One Thread
We are planning to build a larger (20x20 ft) shade structure this year, using one inch electrical conduit for uprights and beams as have others in the past. But Home Depot has three grades of conduit: light, medium, and heavy - which is too heavy to lift. Which grades of conduit have people successfully used in the past?

In general, for a medium-sized dome, we use 3/4" emt conduit. If your structure is going to use cantilevered structures or whatever, you might want to go heavier.
