InfoWater Pro's Pressure Zone Manager (PZM) is a state-of-the-art geocentric solution for analyzing, simplifying, and summarizing pertinent hydraulic information for each pressure zone in a water distribution system model. An indispensable water master planning tool, InfoWater Pro's PZM accelerates hydraulic diagram designs of existing and proposed pressure zones and helps ensure accuracy on projects that feature frequent updates and revisions.

Built atop ArcGIS Pro, InfoWater Pro's PZM seamlessly integrates advanced dynamic water network modeling with sophisticated graph-theoretical algorithms to help you develop rigorous water distribution system models, accurately delineate pressure zone boundaries, and quickly generate comprehensive pressure zone hydraulic schematics including summaries of in/out flows through pumps, control valves, check valves, storage tanks, and reservoirs.

The program automatically identifies and delineates each pressure zone based on its ”rending” elements such as tanks, pumps, control valves, check valves, closed pipes, and reservoirs. This helps to ensure that the network model accurately reflects actual system performance and operation. A hydraulic schematic is then produced for each pressure zone with the maximum and minimum elevation defined by tank level, junction, pump, control valve, closed pipe, and check valve elevation information. Summary data includes the flow and pressure for each hydraulic element, along with a summary of maximum and minimum data for pressure, hydraulic grade line, water quality, flow, velocity, head loss, and hydraulic slope. This information can be generated for any modeling scenario and hydraulic time step of an extended period (dynamic) simulation.

InfoWater Pro's PZM minimizes the obstacles that make water system master planning overly complicated and inefficient. It is the simplest, most powerful master planning tool for use in developing quality hydraulic diagram designs for improved pressure zone management that supports reliable, cost-effective capital investment decisions.

InfoWater Pro's PZM makes water distribution system modeling and master planning easier, faster and more reliable than ever before.

InfoWater Pro's PZM features include:

  • Use English or SI units
  • Compute friction head loss using the Hazen-Williams, Darcy-Weisbach (Colebrook-White), or Chezy-Manning formulas
  • Analyze both steady-state and extended period (dynamic) simulations
  • Handle any number of modeling scenarios
  • Automatically delineate each pressure zone
  • Automatically generate hydraulic profile diagram for each pressure zone
  • Produce summary of inflows/outflows for each pressure zone for any desired time period
  • Generate pressure zone maximum and minimum hydraulic and water quality conditions summary (hydraulic grade, pressure, water age, velocity, chlorine residual, head loss, and HL/1000)
  • Generate master planning facility and operations report for each pressure zone
