Re: Can galvanized pipe be welded to fittings?
Yes, you can weld galvanized pipe, but be warned, toxic fumes will result, so DO NOT breath the smoke. Do the welding outside and do it with a fan to the side of the work to blow the fumes away from you.
For the record, you can actually buy reverse threaded fittings and pipe - at least this was something once available for situations such as yours where conventional threads won't work. I would guess that you'd purchase such a beast from a supply house, not a big box. If all else fails, you could probably buy reverse dies and cut your own threads. Just a thought to consider.
