Atwood Hot water Heater Leak - Parts

Recommended Posts

This white tube in the photos for lack of better description is leaking at the seam in the center. What is it for and where can I get a part like this? The Hot water heater is a Atwood 6 gal. Model EHM6-SM, serial #93891701084. I have looked for parts for the water heater but they show nothing for parts on the exterior like this. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you

It looks like a check valve, you should be able to pick one up at your local hardware store.... you could remove it and leave it out, its certainly not required.

Not positive, but I believe it is a check valve/backflow preventer. I see it has a description and part number on

it, but I can't read it from your pictures. I would search for that part #. Also, these Attwood heaters are the same that are in most RV's.

Any RV store will have one. Get the metal/brass one instead of plastic when you replace it.
