That was put in by a plumber, less then 5 years ago, when he installed the hot water heater. I could write a book, just by the simple things done wrong by so called experts in this area.
If I hadn't gone down to turn the water off to the out side to fix a leaky outside faucet, that would soon have busted, and made a mell of a hess. As it was, its dripping a little over a drop a minute.
different types of metal, should not be put together ( in this case, copper joined with galvanized). they make special couplings, or in this case, it would have been better to use a few more pieces of copper pipe. Just outside the picture, the bottom pipe goes into the water heater, the upper pipe goes into a expansion tank. I'm replacing all that galvanized, and the one copper piece, with less then $10 in copper pieces.
