Just stupid, or . . .

Recommended Posts

. . . did someone think having a valve would make the sediment trap easier to clean or something similarly inane? I've never seen this before.

(And if anyone asks whether I noticed that the valve was closed, I'm gonna kick him square in the ass.)

I would say you are missing a sediment trap and, instead, have a valved and capped off tee for a future appliance. I'll dig out my books, but I thought a sediment trap had to be configured as in the diagram or photo in order to be (most) effective.

Thanks, John. Now we can all say, yes, we've seen that before, if we ever see it agin.

The valve is there to keep the trap from leaking, kind of a double trap.

It's a good place as any to store extra plumbing parts.

The plumber needed to clock another hour to fill up his day.

He knew there had to be a valve on that line, but he couldn't remember where.
