agree  Ivan Šimerka: the Czech term is a terrible, anyway the "-ost" suffix should the grade of filling, which I do not understand

neutral  Jan Macko: I would say Fuse Fillement... Sorry that I am 2 years late though (zasypan-OST is a common deviation, the word normally doesn't exist). Could also be translated as Fuses level of sand filling
