Not sure why, but this unit turned out to be the wrong one for our water heater, but we managed to make it work with a little yankee inginuity. Our old unit was completely flat on the bottom, where the pipes all connect, this one had a 1/2" projection where all the pipes connected. This set the pipes for the main gas line to the burner and the pilot, down that much in the opening, which had the new sealed cover over that opening. We managed to cut a slot in the cover to allow it to move down that 1/2" and align with the screw holes to secure the cover. It was touch and go for awhile, but we finally figured it out, cut the slot and it worked just fine. The unit lit right up after we replaced the thermocouple and the granddaughter and her family now have plenty of hot water. All's well that ends well.

I need a 3/4" gas valve which to selects either one of two possible destinations. (Like a SPDT switch.)

I don't believe there's anything on the market just exactly like what you want. In lieu of that sort of valve, you could run the pipe to a tee, and install a valve on each run from the tee. That way you could leave each closed till you needed gas in that direction and then turn that valve on, leaving the other closed.

How to install a floor drain

Careyle1, your question is a little too vague for a very specific answer. I'd need to know what type of floor you have and what type of piping the rest of the drain system is composed of. IF you'd care to contact me at my email address, I'll try to help you there.

I am having trouble finding 1/4" galvanized piping. I need 4", 9", 10" and a 36" pieces

At least 150 psi but more is fine. Using on compressor.
Having no idea where you live or whether or not there is a Tractor Supply Store anywhere near you, that's where I would suggest you go look for this pipe. The 4", 9", and 10" are called nipples, while the 36" will have to be cut and threaded on the cut end, or you could make it up of 3 - 12" pieces with couplings in between. If no Tractor Supply Stores near you, look for a Menard's or Home Depot, they should also carry these fittings. Good luck.
