Y-Switches are an Object in Where's My Water? first appearing in Rising Tide.


  • Y-Switches are an addition to Pipes which change the direct of movement between three Pipes.
  • Typically, Y-Switches will have one input and two outputs. Switching the Y-Switch will change what output is used.
  • Alternatively, Y-Switches will have one input, one output and a plug. When the input is linked to the plug, the Drain will not take in any more Fluids.

  • The level Octospout is the level with the most Y-Switches; the total being seven, arranged in such a way that one pipe splits into eight, as hinted by the name (octo meaning eight).
  • Only once has a Y-switch had two inputs and an output (where the disabled input will be ignored) and that is in level C4-8: Crossing Paths.
