These included cone-like and U-shaped terracotta water lines that were distinctive to the Minoans. The water availability at Knossos Palace was maintained with a strategy of clay piping that was put under the floor, at depths ranging from a few centimeters to many meters. Along with distributing water, the clay conduits of the Minoans were also used to collect water and accumulate it. This required the clay conduits to be suitable for holding water without seepage.
