How to Indicate Flow Direction on Laterals/Spray Lines

Post by sergiovillagran »

Hello IRRICAD Community,

I'm seeking guidance on whether there's a method to mark the flow direction on laterals or "spray lines" within an IRRICAD design

Appreciate any insights.

Best regards,

Sergio Villagrán

Hi Sergio,

For automatic options, currently the "Flow Direction” label only works for Mainline Pipes due to the system flow number needing to be specified as part of the label requirements. We are looking at extending this to include Zone items in the future.
There is also the "Pipe Reduction" markers, by default this is an 'arrow-type' symbol showing the direction of the pipe reduction and therefore the flow, however this will only be applied if there is a change in size in the mainline, submain, or sprayline.

For laterals the current method is to manually place a flow direction symbol of your choice where required.
