State Industries Water Heater 1988


Since owning this home it appears that Dot was good with maintenance. The water heater looks like the copper tubing has been replaced and possibly the anode. The anode has plastic tape over the top. I placed new electrical tape on the insulation but thats it. Laying on the ground next to the water heater was this pipe. Was the pipe part of the water heater and possibly replaced? Can I discard it?

Thanks for the input.

The TP (Temperature/Pressure) release valve on the right side of the tank should be piped to a drain (or minimally within 6 inhces of the floor).

It's piped into the back wall I assume that is a drain?
