There's an alternate way... you have to go back and actually lower the water level for one of them.. and then push a block over to the pipes that are disconnected. As far as I'm concerned, switch five has nothing to do with anything at all.
Seriously, guys. This is a kids game. Easy "puzzles"
After you lower the water with the first lever (the one near the broken switch 5) head all the way back to area with the vendor and katz person.
Head south from them and you'll see stairs. There is another lever that will lower the water level even further, but don't touch it yet. There is a gray box like thing. Go next to it and you should be able to push it which will make it go to some disconnected pipes.
Now touch the lever to reduce the water level. Head back to the switch 5 area, but take the platform down. Walk over the broken pipes.
Well I found where the block needs to go, but I've never been up to where I would need to go to drop the block. I don't know how I would get there. And don't say it's on the platform with Switch 5 because believe me it's not...

I'm confused.. You go down the ladder where the cat is and you push the platform and it floats all the way to the right. You lower the water and now there's a lower ledge with another green button, but you can't get to it cause there's no stairs? I go back to the purple platform but that takes medown to a platform where there's nowhere to go.. there's an empty spot where a platform can come down, but it's not there.
