    Robert,

    What I suspect that is for is a floor drain primer.

    Some of those use fluctuations in pressure to briefly open a valve and allow water to flow to a floor drain trap to keep it promed.

    Flush a toilet or turn on/off a faucet and the water pressure drops then spikes, which causes the valve to open briefly.
