German term or phrase: Abzweigschacht
Hi,

I would like some help in translating the term "Abzweigschacht" in the following sentence:

Bei Ansprechen eines Schwimmermagnetschalters in einem Dom- oder Abzweigschachtes wird die Anlage abgeschaltet.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Regards,

branch shaft
Explanation:
I know "Abzweigrohr" as branch pipe so I suggest shaft for "-schacht". That said, I suspect they are synonymous, so you may be able to use branch pipe, too.
