Norwegian term or phrase: kjerner
I've asked two plumbers if they know the meaning of 'kjerner' in the sentence below, but no one seems to know, so I'm now seeking the help of other translators. I can't find anything specific online either. Could it simply be pipes or is there a more specialised term?

Kun legges vann/avløp inn til kjerner.

Unfortunately, I don't have more context, as these are just notes.

Many thanks in advance :)
