A drain pan is a round aluminum pan that is installed under an existing or new water heater. This pan has an opening on the side of it into which we attach one end of a 1¼” sump pump hose. The other end of this hose then terminates at the floor drain or sump pit. With a drain pan installed, if the water heater, drain valve, or relief valve were to leak, the water would be caught in the pan and it would exit through the hose and drain into the floor drain or sump pit. This will save the basement from becoming flood damaged and potentially ruining your valuable possessions.
