drains


Explanation:
Há alternativas para a tradução de drenos: uma é drains, outra é drainage elements, outra ainda é drainage tubes, pipes and connections. Tubes and pipes é somente parte dos drenos, do sistema de drenagem. Pode até ser que em seu contexto os drenos podem significar a entrada do sistema de drenagem. Drains poderia ser melhor tradução para drenos.
