Pressure Loss with Outlets

For estimating friction pressure losses or appropriate pipe sizes in pipelines with emitters (outlets) at regular intervals such as common in sprinkler or drip lines.Learn more about the units used on this page.

 

Friction Loss from Laterals or Manifolds with Outlets

This calculates pressure loss due to friction in a pipe with regular equally spaced outlets, such as a sprinkler lateral, drip line, or a manifold.

Minimum Pipe Diameter Size

This calculates the minimum pipe size for a pipe with equally spaced outlets such as a sprinkler lateral or manifold given a maximum allowable pressure loss.
