comment Hot Water Through Cold Water Side
What was the water pressure before the booster pump? And after? Also, are there any check valves installed on the cold feeding the hot water heaters?

comment Air handler condensation draining problem
@Tester101, The trap is not to prevent sewer gas in this application. It's purpose is to maintain separation between zones of different air pressure while allowing the condensate to drain.

comment What type of copper pipe do I need for a typical LP gas range?
Also note that if you do replace the copper tubbing with copper tubing: while they sell compression fittings that will fit the copper tubing, typically compression fittings are not allowed on gas. You should confirm with your local code, but it will most likely require flared or solder connections.

comment What type of copper pipe do I need for a typical LP gas range?
I would be very surprised if copper was not approved for gas. There are issues with the type of fittings used when using copper for gas installations, such as compression fittings are typically not allowed (must use solder or flared).

comment Air handler condensation draining problem
Your best bet is to look up your unit on the manufactures website and find the installation manual. It should include information on how to size the p-trap to account for the unit's operational pressures. If they don't explicitly detail the p-trap, you should be able to get the operational pressure and use the article I linked to to get the dimensions.

If the compartment has a negative pressure, you should have a p-trap.

comment Bar-sink drain won't drain water
Can you clarify what you mean by "bar-sink drain cover"? A picture or link to the product would help.

comment PEX Manifold with existing piping?
I'm curious as to why you would need to install copper or pex with a 1/4" per foot grade. Is there a code requirement for this. Winterization can be addressed by blowing out the lines with air if that is the concern.

Do you require the hose end to have tempered water, or is cold water only okay?
