I can offer a guess, if you have two pipes, one to each side of the tub, this might be used to make both pipes the same length.

I think Chris is right. Most tubs have a method of insulating the bulk water to stay warm, but have service area without insulation to get at pumps and such that need to be heated to prevent freezing.

I did some more looking and it was originally made for boiler systems and is actually made to keep water in the heater if you get a leak so it doesn't make steam or a bomb or in your case cause a fire from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.
Wow Interesting thanks a lot Chris
