which boiler tap to dump condensate line?

Hi,

One of the radiators is not working very well since it's a two pipe and it's condensate line is capped. When the boiler was replaced, they did not run that line, but told me how to do it (which line in the boiler the condensate should go to.) Problem is that I forgot.

I made a movie and I see three possible options, A B or C

I appreciate any guidance.

    It should go into A.

    Run the pipe back towards the boiler.

    It should pitch down toward the boiler 1" in 20' (minimum) it can pitch more.

    Stay above the boiler water line at least 28" (more is better) until you get above the tee your going to hook into and then drop straight down.

    The thing is avoid any horizontal piping from the boiler water line up to 28" above the water line.
