comment What is the minimum distance wiring must be behind a tile backsplash?
I hadn't considered running 12/3 to all the receptacles as @Edwin suggests. A strict interpretation of the NEC "two or more ... circuits shall be provided for all receptacle outlets" might suggest this? So that at least one socket on every receptacle continues to work if one circuit is tripped? Seems nice, but is it common practice?

@bcworkz O2 barrier seems to be important for only polyethylene tubing? esp when metallic connectors are used. My best guess is that these loops are unreinforced EPDM which has a pretty good track record unless exposed to organics. I'm not too worried about the manifolds lack of crimps/barbs since they are accessible and replaceable. My primary concern is longevity and reliability of the of the tubing itself.

comment Can I run a ground wire of a single circuit to the panel outside the house?
@Tester101 I have no attic or crawlspace. replacing the circuit involves removal and repair of 1-in thick sandy plaster in 3-4 rooms on two levels. Remodeling these rooms is planned future work in the next decade or so, but not now.
