tube hanging from bottom

Probaly a stupid question. I was washing quad yesterday and noticed a tube hanging in the center just past the front of the rear fenders. Is that a fuel drain or did I knock something loose with the pressure washer? It hangs past the bottom of bike.

I spent about 3 hours in a rice field the other day, no chance of sucking water up in there is it?

Check valve works well, when attached. If you lose that one-way valve and water is above line than yes water can/will definetely get sucked up into carb.
