    Considering you were like 12-years old when you got your Masters I'd say it wasn't a waste.

      my guess is its a steam generator for a sauna/steam bath type of deal steam blows down from the top spigot and into the cup/diffuser and blows up and out. the cup/diffuser also acts as a drain/catch to collect any superheated water and get rid of it so that nobody gets scalded.


      thats my 2 cents anyway.

        Figured I'd just copy straight from my states code in the definitions section:
        Air Break (Drainage System). A piping arrangement wherein a drain from a fixture, appliance, or device discharges indirectly into a fixture, receptacle, or interceptor at a point below the flood level rim of the receptacle.
        Air Gap (Drainage System). The unobstructed vertical distance through the free atmosphere between the outlet of a waste pipe and the flood level rim of the receptacle into which the waste discharges.

        The UPC and/or IPC might have slightly difference definitions, but the defining factor for an air break vs air gap is the location of the outlet in respect the the fixtures flood rim.

        The difference, a tub spout requires an air gap to prevent backflow...a commercial dishwasher, or washing machine discharging into a laundry sink requires an air break on the waste discharge.

                      Nope. I was serious this time Mr. Steam is the one I know. I have just enough plumbing knowledge to make me dangerous

                              I use to be able to read, write, and speak fluently. I got a 5 on my AP test and German is one of the hardest AP language tests. My brain is full of other stuff now. It is true if you don't use it you lose it
