Drain Hose

Just had my 3071 out and hooked up to water for the first time. I noticed that there were 2 blue hoses in the back and one had a steady drip of water coming out. I tightened it and the drip went away but I"m still not sure what the hose is for. Is it some kind of pressure valve?

over flow or to drain the tank. One of mine has a small
value at the bottom of it, it was dripping and I turned
the value and no more drip!

If you are talking about the lines with caps on the ends they are the water header drains. Blue for cold and red for hot.

Those are most likely the low point drains to drain water lines of water when winterizing.
