2  “Plumbing Design” from HVAC Design Solutions is a package of software programs for most of the Plumbing Designer’s sizing tasks:  Fixture Unit/GPM Calcs  Water System Sizing  Waste & Vent System Sizing  Roof Drain System Sizing  Natural Gas System Sizing  Water Heater Sizing  Extensive Help Files, and “Extras” © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions2

3  Reduce your dependence on Reference Books, Charts, Graphs, and “Rules of Thumb”.  Eliminate many of the usual Plumbing Design Tasks  Reduce common errors and mistakes  Create an easy-to-follow, step-by-step “Procedure for Plumbing Design” for all projects. © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions3 Software Package contains most of the sizing calculations and procedures for typical projects

4 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions4 Quick Links to all calculation programs “Any One of these programs is worth the cost of the Entire Package!”

5 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions5 Begin with Basic Project Information input Information automatically transfers to all programs Design Conditions are used in some calculations

6 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions6 Count the Fixtures for the project and input the quantities of each type Fixture Unit Values may be edited to meet local Codes

7 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions7 Input Fixture Quantities, and the Total FU and Total GPM are calculated, per Local Code requirements

8 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions8 Total Demand transferred from Fixture Unit Totals Adding Project specific information…... Results in Allowable Pipe Pressure Drop/100’ for “Longest Run” sizing

9 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions9 Max. Allowable PD/100’ Automatically transferred to Pipe Section Sizing Calcs Input FU values for each pipe section Input fittings and valves for each pipe section

10 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions10 Final, Accurate Pipe Section sizing, after corrections for actual fittings and valves Accurate Pipe sizing, NOT based on Rule-of-Thumb, like “add 50% for Fittings”!!

11 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions11 Quick input of pipe section loading and lengths (W and/or V) Resulting sizes for the section Cross reference in chart form

12 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions12 Input W-FU and vertical length for each pipe section Required sizes at different slopes are calculated automatically

13 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions13 Input V-FU, total length, and horizontal length for each pipe section Required sizes are calculated automatically

14 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions14 Input Roof Area served by Roof Drain Input Local Rainfall Rate Roof Drain size or Vertical Pipe sizes are calculated Input Adjacent Wall Area where applicable

15 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions15 Input Local Rainfall Rate Input Roof Area served by Pipe Section Input Adjacent Wall Area where applicable Horizontal Roof Drainage Pipe Section sizes are calculated for 1/8”, 1/4”, and 1/2” pipe slopes

16 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions16 Select Type of Facility from drop-down list Input quantity of each Fixture Type

17 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions17 Input Kitchen Fixtures, as applicable Demand Factor and Storage Factor are applied to Max. Demand, based on Type of Facility Resulting in required Water Heater Output and required Storage Tank Capacity

18 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions18 Start with a sketch of the Gas Piping system

19 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions19 1. Input Local Gas conditions 2. Input Flow Rate and Lengths for “Longest Run” and Branches 3. Input Fittings and Valves for each section 4. Sizes are calculated for each Section

22 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions22 Extensive “Quality Control” Plumbing Checklists are available in a separate “Plumbing Peer Review” Software Package Over (70) Pages of Checklists and Spreadsheets for a thorough review of Plumbing Construction Documents

23 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions23 Example of Quality Control Check List Items

24 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions24 After completing input and calculations, Output and Sizing Documents can be printed for submittal to building department officials and for addition to drawings and schedules

25 © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions25 Extensive Plumbing Programs

26  Straightforward takeoff and input allows easy calculation and sizing of Plumbing Systems.  Extensive procedures, formulas, charts, and tables as prescribed by Plumbing Codes and as recommended by ASPE and ASHRAE have been included and have been used to establish the “Accurate” Plumbing System Sizes.  Multiple Programs are included, covering most of the typical Plumbing Design Tasks for most projects. © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions26

27  Significantly reduces “Reference Material Dependence” which can save a great deal of time and effort.  Output in the form of Compliance Documents or System Sizing Summaries for submittal to appropriate code enforcement officials or building departments.  Extensive “Help Files” that are hyperlinked to each program, form, or table. © Copyright 2008 HVAC Design Solutions27
