Need ideas for a title

I'm currently working on a game with a pipe laying mechanic, where players try to direct the water pipe from a central source back to their base/settlement. The idea is similar to those pipeline puzzles in many video games, but with a competitive multiplayer element. I've already built the initial foundation of mechanics but I still have not found a name for it. Any suggestions?

P.S. I'm also partial to the setting as well. Currently choosing between a desert setting, underground (ala Fallout's vault system), or an urban post-apocalypse. Please include what setting the title fits as well. Thanks! :D

Not sold on the name!

Plumbers International: Could have characters from various country with some kind of bonus or special ability for each country.

Theme: The polar ice caps are melting! The plumbers must compete to the best layout to redirect the extra water from the city of Venice before the city sinks beneath the Mediterranean sea....

Flavor: Make it cutesy like Super Mario Brothers. Just as a general feel to the board game. But more INTERNATIONAL!

BTW I am not sold on the name... What I REALLY LIKE is the "Theme". Making it about "Venice" sound real cool to me...

Here are a couple names I came up with:
Pipe Route
Pipe or Plummet

You've probably done this already but a quick BGG search with the word pipe produces several games that use pipe laying as their main mechanic. It may be worth looking at how to make yours unique and avoid any unnecessary duplication.

I like it...

'My water!'

I like it, Sheeptree, as the game is built to be competitive. Thanks!

The Odd Fox, I know right? Currently trying out various elements to make it different from others. The pipe game is quite common, I just realized.

questccg, the water drain mechanic looks good. A bit reversed.

Thanks guys! I was in a mental block, and this thread suddenly inspired me. You're the best! :D

I read your post yesterday or the day before...
I thought of "flinging pipe"

I vote for Pipe Dream

I guess my subject line explains it pretty well.
