The RUST Fluid Combiner is a deployable entity, part of RUST’s electrical system, and is primarily used to take multiple water-collection sources such as Small Water Catchers and combine them for storage or use in containers such as the Water Barrel, or via Sprinklers.
Players may deploy fluid combiners on most surfaces. When using a Hose Tool to check for ports, players will find a single Water Out and 3 Water In options.
The fluid system relies on basic gravitational laws to function properly, so unless the Input source is physically higher in elevation than the storage source or sprinkler, a Fluid Switch & Pump will be required to move the water from point A to point B. Reference our Farming Guide for more applications.
Fluid combiners may be found in an assortment of low-to-mid-tier crates, as well as drops from a wide range of scientists. Players may also research them, purchase them directly from Outpost for 30 Scrap or invest scrap into the tier 1 workbench tech tree to learn this blueprint.
