Hey, welcome brother! Sorry about the rude welcome from some of the guys. They must need a hug today. Anyway, forewarned us forearmed; you can expect a lot of the type of ball busting your intro received. Have thick skin if you're gonna continue to show your work on here. I swear some of these guys would eat their own. ;-)

Thought it valid. For instance.

"I have been working as a brain surgeon" then a picture out of a medical magazine.

Except for copper to black iron connections (if that is what I am seeing) with no transition fittings, the unit drain with no fixed air gap tied into the sump & if your not a plumber installing the backflow device& pressure regulator.

Outside of that Purty.

Why would he need an air gap on a condensate line off a boiler that's not draining into a plumbing system? It's just a sump pit

First off the condensation drain has a Y adapter you can't see in the picture. And also there is a 9D back flow combo tied in under the air scoop

I believe he was defending your need for an air gap

The system is tied into the potable water. It is protected by a mid level backflow preventor.

When you take all parts into consideration, once you "submerse" any portion of the system into a contaminated source (sump pit) that steps up the requirement for cross connection compliance. If you have an RPZ on the feed fine. If not then an air gap.

Just like you would not run a water heater relief drain to a pit or service sink and submerge it.

A lot may hinge on your AHJ, realize I am talking Illinois which has its own plumbing code not the IPC.

You guys do realize that the condensate on the condensing boiler has nothing to to with the water connection. It is the condensate from the combustion process, NOTHING to do with domestic water what so ever. Therefore no need for an air gap.air break would be acceptable
