FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...

Can I get FastQuote to select the fittings I need?
Yes. FastQuote can automatically select fittings from the database to solve connections. It is easy to make FastQuote select the type of fittings you specifically wish to use.

Can I enter new fittings and other items into the database?
Yes. You can easily enter new items, or you can download manufacturer-specific databases from our website and merge them with your current working database. FastQuote is supplied with a comprehensive database containing fittings, pipe, sprinkler and other components.

Can we customise the reports to our requirements?
Yes, FastQuote generates reports from templates. These templates can be customised to your personal requirements for both content and style.

How long does it take to learn FastQuote?
This can vary from individual to individual, depending on experience and background. There are support resources available, including a help menu, tutorials, help documents, FAQ’s and a forum on our website, and training manuals. We are also available by email or phone to answer your questions. AEI Software prides itself on providing prompt and helpful support to its clients.

Do I need to buy a separate drawing package?
No, FastQuote comes complete as a standalone package with all the drawing features of a standard CAD package.

Do I need to buy upgrades?
Support upgrades and patches appear periodically on our website www.IRRICAD.com and can be downloaded at no charge. You will receive 12 months free support and upgrades when you purchase FastQuote. Major upgrades in the future can be purchased as required.

If I import or draw contours, will FastQuote take these into account when doing the hydraulic design process and calculating the pipe lengths?
Yes. FastQuote interpolates between contours and/or spot heights and uses the results during pipe sizing and hydraulic analysis. Elevations are also used to calculate the pipe lengths.

Can I analyse existing systems or only design new systems in FastQuote?
You can analyse any existing systems, design extensions to existing systems, and design totally new systems in FastQuote.

Can FastQuote select pipe sizes for the design?
Yes. You can size pipes based on the pressure required at sprinklers and valves, or you can size pipes based on a maximum velocity in the pipes. You can select some pipe sizes manually and ask FastQuote to select the rest for you.

Can I use pumps in FastQuote?
Yes. There is a pump component group to the database. You can enter new pumps easily and use them in any design. Can I lay electrical wiring in a design? Yes, you can input electrical items such as wires, controllers and other electrical items. These are included in the Bill of Materials reports.

FAST, FLEXIBLE COMPONENT ENTRY

FastQuote contains a host of system layout aids, like automatic head placement and spraylines. Choose the pipes you want from the pop-up database, or just layout their positions and let FastQuote size them. There’s no set order for putting things in, nor do you have to worry whether its zone or mainline; FastQuote works all this out.

Want to change something? No problem. For example, you can “grab” a sprinkler and move it, complete with its wetted radius if you want to check coverage. And don’t worry about disrupting the system, the pipes will move too if they are attached. You can quickly see what happens to performance using alternative sprinklers by applying FastQuote’s global edit.

Controller, lights and wiring are also entered with ease.

POWERFUL DESIGN CAPABILITY

Design couldn’t be much simpler. Set it going and there’s virtually nothing to do. FastQuote makes sure the System is all connected, then checks that the water supply can handle the duty and there is no overwatering. If everything checks out, the system is designed and a zone operating schedule is produced.
