heThe Pipe Sizing Report allows the user to view a range of connection and pipe sizing data in a range of layouts.


Once a flow path is selected from the first combo box the report will display information dependant on the table layout. The table layout can be selected from the second combo box.

The report can then be exported to pdf.

The current table layouts available are:
