A Waterproof conduit transmits power from generators or batteries to appliances up to six squares away. Waterproof Conduit can only be built on water.

The underwater conduit can be used to power or connect things on another side of a river such as watermill generators or deep drills.

Acquisition

Waterproof conduits can be constructed once the Electricity research project has been completed. They require Steel 10 Steel and 35 ticks (0.58 secs) of work.

Summary

Short circuit

A conduit can short circuit, damaging a random piece of conduit and discharging all connected stored power from batteries, in an explosion proportional to the amount of charge. This damage can be mitigated by building walls over your power conduits (preventing fires), keeping critical areas and storage away from conduits, and disconnecting charged banks of batteries from the network via a power switch.
