Forum Title: Any ideas what this is ?
Greetings.... Just bought a house and today was down in the basement getting ready to swap out the pressure regulator..... I noticed that the copper water main line in has a rather interesting connection with CPVC tubing making what to me seems to have been a lazy offset joint..... It seems so silly I am second guessing myself and thinking there might be a legitimate function here I am not aware of... Any opinions on this from those in the know appreciate Thanks Ben

Oy vey...... Some things, once seen, can not be unseen. The only explanation, other than a hack that can't solder, is that there was a need for an expansion joint. Is this a hot line, with a long straight run (30+ feet)?

dude didn't wanna solder. Or like phish said, didn't know how lmao. I'd get that CPVC out of there.

the word fugly comes to mind I would say you are looking at a handyman special. I bet you a stale dognut against a day old bologna sammich, that he could not join the pipe together because of water/steam while soldering, and that was his solution.
