Cloud-Based Software

H2X is cloud-based, so you are not tethered to a single location.

Need to design one project in the office and another at home? No problem - it's all at your fingertips.

Work sharing between colleagues, offices or countries is seamless.

Design to Your Standards

The plumbing engineer sets the parameters, so H2X can complete all of the calculations.

Instantly switch between standards and parameters and compare the results.

Precise and Accurate Detail

There is no human error, no 'rule of thumb' and no confusion between standards - just transparent, compliant and accurate engineering.

Design warnings also highlight issues in your design so they can be rectified early in the design phase.

Effortless Redesigning

When it comes to traditional methods, any changes to the architectural layout means restarting the design process.

With H2X, you can upload the latest background and drag pipes and fixtures to their new location, updating in minutes rather than hours.

Review Process

Instantly share results for review.

H2X enables innovative teams to improve the review process by allowing team leaders, colleagues, or external project team members to review results directly in H2X.

Cost Estimation

Automatic cost estimation enables the engineer to present cost-effective design choices for each plumbing system.

Keep your clients up to date with the cost implications of changes to the design. 

Export CAD and Revit Files

Once you are happy with your results in H2X, export the design into CAD or Revit. 

The H2X Revit plugin allows you to import the pipework and valves whilst still using your internal BIM library settings and families.

Manufacturer Collaboration

H2X has partnered with industry-leading manufacturers, enabling the designer to specify real-life products.

 

This automatically provides the most accurate results based on their technical properties.

High-Quality Plumbing Designs

Using H2X, an engineer can design up to four times faster than using traditional methods - all while improving consistency, compliance and accuracy.

The Tool You Need To Design Your Plumbing Systems

​​H2X allows engineers to design plumbing systems efficiently and to a high quality.

Engineers Are Talking

User-friendly software that allows different design options to be quickly and accurately sized.

Mathew Yanez

Director of Plumbing Design Solutions

Simple and easy to use and saves hours on re-design/recalculating when the architect changes the floor plans!

Nick Soden

Director at NAS Hydraulics

Great product. H2X saves time on calculations and markups, allowing you to do both simultaneously.

Josh Borthwick

Hydraulic Engineer at AECOM

The complete software package was a breath of fresh air compared to alternative hydraulic calculation software on the market. The usability of the system was effortless compared to it's competitors in the UK. It is a free flowing piece of software which allows the user to design, distribute and calculate domestic water services.

Daniel Collins

Director at Design 24 Consulting

H2X has helped us streamline some areas of our workflow by consistently allowing us to size and analyse our designs at markup stage across a broad range of projects. Currently, it is being used in residential and commercial projects.

Blake Mead

Plumbing Engineer at Intrax

Very, very useful tool that is likely to make a real impact in the industry. The team are extremely helpful, proactive and knowledgeable - able to provide general plumbing design advice as well as that pertaining to the software itself.

Kane Bailey

Plumbing Engineer at Stantec

The Future Of Plumbing Engineering

H2X is a one of a kind, revolutionary plumbing design tool that is improving the way we design plumbing systems.
