It might be too late for my two cents, but for just some 3/4 conduit, I'd recommend you use some Zamac's for the fastening problem you describe. Fast, secure, and only as strong as it needs to be.

Yeah, I'm actually surprised that two out of three neighbors agreed to split their portion. Hopefully, the bill is just to one customer, or this could get messy.
