Question

Clear plastic hose on gas water heater


I HAVE A REPAIR TO DO ON A GAS WATER HEATER, WHERE THERE IS A CLEAR PLASTIC HOSE COMING UP FROM THE PAN UNDER THE HEATER AND WAS ATTACHED TO THE TANK WITH SOME STICK ON CLIPS THAT FELL OFF. THE OTHER END OF THE HOSE HAS A RETAINING CLIP AT THE END AND I NEED TO KNOW WHERE IT SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO, AS IT IS JUST HANGING. APPRECIATE ANY HELP!!

is this a power vent water heater? some used to have a clear hose that attatched to a tee in the horizontal vent for condensation to drain through.

Thanx DannyT.....it is a power vent as it has a ventilating unit on top, that vent out through pvc piping. The tank is in a tight corner so I'll have to look for the tee and reconnect. Thanks again DannyT...Billy Bob....
