    Default Line coming from drain at water heater.....

    Has anybody seen this.
    I am guessing it is part of a circulating system or something. Has a circulating pump but have never seen one coming from the drain cock. Down the line to the right about 2' is the pump, and it is going to the other side of the attic and down the wall. but I cant figure out where it actually goes. On that side of the house there is the master bath upstairs and kitchen on 1st. Is this out of plumbing code?

    That is pretty routine here for a circulating pump on the hot water. Should be a check valve, which may be just to the right of the valve.

    They also sometimes tie in at the cold water input here, seems about 50/50.
