    With the way its shown in the pics yes.

    But, by just his description. I wasn't going to lead him into thinking it should be fixed for free.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    You da man!

    I was wondering myself about your stand. Now it makes sense.

    There's enough assuming in the world.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    May we assume your mom also told you this?

    Yes

    If so the trap on the furnace should be on the same side of the flue pipe.If its not did thay put in the kit from lennox to drain that way.
    Flue is on the same side as condensate trap

    And for the trap and drain should not be set up with the tee. Make it right and it will work better.
    T fitting is glued to the condensate trap - not sure how to take it off without ruining trap.

    Run a separate line. If your drain plugs up, the condensate will back up into the coil pan and overflow into your furnace. Has your humidifier been leaking or is the white residue from an older unit?

    In the past this humidifier plugged the drain hose with minerals and overflowed. That's why I'm concerned with having it plumbed properly. I'm convinced it should have a separate drain for each source of water.

    yes, ideal setup would be separate 3/4" pipes for all units, but what do you think most people would say about 3- 3/4" pipes run across the floor to the drain? Most hate to have the one. But I will agree that the humidifier draining into the pipe above the a coil is going to be trouble someday, as long as they are coming back ask them to run that separate all the way to the drain, I am sure they will not have issues with that.
    You can't fix stupid
