The pipe is a distribution method for liquids and gases. It is commonly used to provide water to Boilers and steam to Steam engines for power generation. Unlike transport belts, players and enemies can't walk over them.

Only one fluid can be inside a pipe at one time. Trying to mix two fluids can destroy one of the fluids. Read more on liquid mechanics.
