Exposed PVC Pipe - Stand/Leg/Holder

I am looking for a source or name of the "stand/leg/holder" that can be used for PVC pipe running horizontally above gound, in example where the salt cell is or coming off the heater, to keep it from sagging or if something drops on top of it- keep it from flexing too badly.

While I have seen T's plumbed in with endcaps, I do not want stagnant water traps or sediment traps, there has to be something made to "support" free standing pipe?

To support a 1 1/2" pipe take a 2" T and cut off the top so it is open in a U and will slip onto the outside of the pipe. Then put a leg on it of the height needed for support. No water flows through it.

I had not considered this, I had only seen the T in use while it was the stand - (two of them got cut out when installing the salt-cell, full of nasty stuff. This will work if I can't find a good source for the clamp-stands.
