Actually, water at sea level would only rise about ten meters in the column.
Correct. That's what I get for relying on memory instead of doing the math.

I'd like to see the pipe strong enough to hold a column of water that reached into space. I don't even think it could be built, it would collapse under its own weight, even without the extreme water pressure.
