Explanation:
I used the sentence below to describe your context.

You might also consider the Swe text -- I think 'stigarledning' (http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stigarledning) is what they are talking about, rather than stigarrör (which strikes me as more plumping oriented -- yes it's all water, but ...)
Here is a link -- refers to valves

Yeah, that's plumbing...But the idea is perhaps 'avsättning' isn't the exact right term for a firefighting (räddningstjänst) context

Btw, the Swe sentance was 'Varje våningsplan bör förses med dubbla uttag för smalslang...'.
