Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
This stuff is a wonder material. digitalTRASH and our friends have made a number of things from PVC and it's cousin Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). You can get it cheaply down at your local home improvement megaplex. You can also scrounge it out of the trash at construction sites. It's light so it often falls off of trucks. (No, not the figurative "falling off a truck", the literal one)

There are many types of connectors and adapters available for PVC and ABS. It's easy to cut and shape, no special tools required. Building is quick with the fast setting glue. It can be structurally strong, if the design is well thought out, and the pipe is rated to support a range of PSIs. Once it is glued together it is water tight.

Whenever I need to build something, my first thought is "How I could do this with PVC?"
