Finnish term or phrase: talohaara
"talohaara" seems to be a concept associated with water and gas piping (and maybe other types of conduits).

E.g. the annual report of a power company lists "talohaarat" as an item related to natural gas transmission that the company has invested in.

But it's not entirely transparent what "talohaara" means.

Ajatuksia?
