Need to identify hose fixture in water bay

My city water connection in my water bay is leaking. This is likely due to my laziness of leaving my water pressure regulator hang from it (in all fairness- I used to have a hose that took the weight off, but that developed its own leak).

Does anyone know where I can find this thru-fitting? Or even just name it?



From the front (just the white portion):


From the rear (my guess it's the black + maybe metal portions):

That is probably a check valve. Its there to prevent water from backing up into the city water system possibly contaminating it.

If it is, that makes me feel a little stabby because it's metal where the check valve on the rear of the water heater was plastic. That plastic one melted into place before it broke!

Oh wow- never thought I'd have to replace the whole thing. Now I'm even more annoyed with myself.

It's a check valve to prevent water gushing out of it and have no pressure to any faucets (toilet etc.) when using water from the holding tank with the water pump and not on shore hook up. Not for contamination issues.

Your fresh tank is a gravity fill system? Nice, I miss mine.
