    i followed this tube and it is delivering water whenever the shower is on to a drain in the basement, this appears to be just a waste of water (esecially hot water) has anyone heard of this before and is it nesesarry?

    It sounds like some DIYers idea of keeping the trap from drying out and causing sewer gas to finds its way into the house.
    I would eliminate it and use RV antifreeze in the trap to prevent it from drying out.
