Let see, the cost of those three couplers, glue and time exceed the price of a 8’ piece. Like they say, money is no object…

Some areas it is ok as far as code...but I have seen more and more areas using better common sense in requiring metal (copper) extension.

Regardless of the plastic, it cannot run uphill. TPR valves are required to drain down.

Ditto what Jeff said. You could have bought a mile or two PVC for what those couplings and fittings cost. Normally I don’t see PVC but rather CPVC on TPR valves and only occasionally, most of the time copper or nothing at all.

Here is a picture of the second water heater from that home. Its a beauty as well. (BTW I did call out the incorrect slope of the TPR drain pipe on both of them)
