    Default TPR discharge pipe

    Tell me this is wrong. I'm refering to code check (IRC 2803.6.1 and UPC 608.5). AS you can see this was an approved installation.

    " THIS IS WRONG" cannot be facing up. Must be able to see termination also. Could you?

    That NM cable is wrong too.

    Looks like that is in a closet, in which case it would also require a disconnect to disconnect the water heater from its supply. (There is an exception for the disconnect, but with what is shown in that photo, I doubt it applies.)

    Is that discharging into PVC in the corner behind the water heater? If so, that is not allowed either.

    Wow. That's a whole lot of effort to do something completely wrong.

    The icing on the cake, though, are the two APPROVAL stickers on the side of that thing.
