The reason why we’re placing them here is because the Replacement Pipes you make in the forge aren’t normal items.

You’ll need to individually carry them to the broken pipes, and it can be quite slow.

There are 3 broken pipes in general around the area and their places might change due to how procedural generation works. For some of the pipes, you might need to build a few platforms to get to them.

Once you’re done placing the pipes, go inside the pump station and look for the giant gear. Next to it is the lever that Drains the Lower deeps. Interact with it to complete the goal!
