What's this valve?

I have an '04 X10 with the 350 MCX engine. Never did figure out what this valve does. It's the one in the second picture. Looks like it came from the garden section at Home Depot.

If you have a heater, it's probably the hot water line shut off valve to the heater installed by someone.

They still use the hot and cold flow valves. They just use the hose spigot to stop the flow of water to the heater core during the summer/warmer months.

Should not affect the shower... depending on how your shower was plumbed. Should only affect the heater.

Yep, I have the same. If I turn this off, no hot air for my heater.
