The TPR valve being stacked on top of the hot water outlet. Is this an acceptable configuration.
The purpose of copper tubing that installed in the original TPRV outlet. The tubing is insulated and loops down into the chase that the condensate line and refrigerant line exit the house to a heat pump. The HVAC equip is about 10 years newer than the water heater.
The air handler is just above the water heater (just out of the attached picture).
Thank you for the quick reply - I called for review by licensed plumber on the home inspection report and now I am preparing a 4 point. I am inclined to flag it as a hazard. As usual it is a tight closing and no one will be happy about the insurance delay.
