The way it's cut in, I would say it's a repair of some sort.

It is called a Hartford loop and I guess it equalizes pressures for your jets. You can Google it for more info.

Well done.

It keeps the water out of the air system.

I did some more looking and it was originally made for boiler systems and is actually made to keep water in the heater if you get a leak so it doesn't make steam or a bomb or in your case cause a fire from heating without water in the system.
