I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert

I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert the sump water currently discharging into the sanitary system to that of a storm water system. I have the following questions as I live in an area where the frost can be as deep as 42"1. does the uniform plumbing code allow for switching the sump water to the sanitary system when ground freezing occurs (where water is likely to freeze within the pipe)?2. Does the code define the depth required for the discharge pipe from the sump pump to the curb?

I moved into my mother's house after she passed, and I noticed she had a newer sump pump installed in the basement. I also noticed that there is an outdoor spigot that didnt used to be there that seems connected to the sump pump. The garden hose is a seperate spigot on the other side of the house. What is the spigot for and should I be doing something with it?

Have a hot water circulation system with 2 gas heaters, pump

Have a hot water circulation system with 2 gas heaters, pump is tied to both heaters via a common line. One heater has leak and I have shut off burner and the cold water supply valve to it. Had to relight the other heater and it is now going but when I feel the lines on top of both heaters 3 are warm/hot while the 4th is cold and the cold supply.Can I safely open the cold supply on the leaking tank to keep both tanks full and water heating. I believe this is the only water supply to the tanks as the other 3 lines are all warm/hot now.
