We have areas that include trees and shrubs in the same planter areas, but on separate valves.
Problems: Under Piping>Lateral Line> Type: Choices do not include Polyethylene 17mm (0.66" OD; 0.56 ID). I suppose we could use 1/2", but that has an ID of .622". Calcs may be close I guess. But there will be a little more friction loss that that calculated. Right? Right now showing poly but only getting to use .662 ID. (Notice the phantom in the example.)
In Jakes Power Tip - Designing with Drip areas at 1:36 explains how to add emitters to an area, but how does one create an area around existing emitters? LandFX recognizes the emitters in the Emitter Placement button, but when we try to place an "Area for drip emitters" it states that "No equipment of that type in the current project. Would you like to add some now?" . . They're already placed.
Maybe we didn't create our emitters properly. When we list an individual one it properly calculates a flow, but when we use the station button it lets us know the count, but not the flow.
What we want to do is place a transition point in a hatch area and have the flow calculated based on how many emitters are located within the hatched area.
If anyone has any ideas, we're open to listening to your ideas. Would you suggest an easier and more communicative way to do this?
