Does anyone recognize this brass-looking component that’s sitting in the drain pan of a water heater?
It’s attached to the cold water supply line of the electric tanked water heater.
I’m SORRY for not getting you better pictures! There were a lot of personal belongings in the way.
In reality, I could have gotten better pictures with higher resolution.
What is this thing in the picture below.
Water shut off valve, senses water in the drain pan and then shuts off the flow.
It’s a water safety shutoff valve. Good to know! Thank you, @ddagostino !
