Welcome to this mains water pipe size calculator for the UK.
Flow rate and friction loss in a pipe network system can be difficult to calculate. When the pipe network is in a ring main (also known as a closed-loop) formation, the calculations are extra difficult.
This difficult calculation is very common for fire hydrant ring main size designs and the ring main design calculations.
A study found that human errors that lead to building defects are caused by: Poor workmanship; Poor supervision; Lack of skills and knowledge; Lack of motivation…
Lets start with understanding the basics of hot water recirculation systems.
Have you ever waited a long time for hot water to come out of the tap?
Designing a hot water recirculation system can be one of the most challenging parts of the job for many engineers. When done correctly, the process can involve numerous iterations of calculations between pipe sizing and heat loss before the final results are realised.
