This is the ninety-second puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Sylvain. In order to solve this puzzle, you must open the fewest number of valves to allow the water to flow into the sink.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It goes without saying that if you open every valve in sight, the water will make it to your faucet. To keep things simple, though, let's start near the source. It's safe to say that you'll have to open one of the three valves directly surrounding the water source.

    Keep the number of valves you open in addition to this one as low as possible, and you'll have your answer.

Hint Two
    There are three more valves positioned near the faucet. Work backward from each of these and see where they go.

    Do this right, and you'll eliminate quite a few possible valves.

Hint Three
    You really only need to open two valves.

    Start from the valves near the water source and trace a route. If you don't find yourself at the faucet after opening a second valve, you made a wrong turn somewhere. This theory also works in reverse.

    Keep performing test runs like this and you'll find the solution.
