A Game Changer for the Humble Plumber
Kommentare: Incredible...... is all I can say. I have implemented a lot of software, some good, a few bad... but this one so far has been a breeze. You ask a question and within minutes (regardless of the time zone) it gets answered. These guys are on POINT. Well done boys
I had been searching for a product/software of this nature for many years. I stumbled across H2X from a consultants design when I seen a tiny reference to H2X website..... Low and behold I found the holly grail of plumbing design by clicking on this link.... I started a trail version, got a wee demonstration from [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who was more than happy to help with any questions I had, in an extremely timely manner. This software is intuitive, super easy to use and has many great features to help any old humble plumber with a simple or even more complex design without the need to engage a mechanical consultant .
I can't find many yet.... Been able to undertake Stormwater Calculation with rainfall intensity would be amazing.... I hear this might be in the pipeline. Exporting designs in PDF's to show all pipe sizes would be ideal as well.... No all sizes and pipe products can be shown on the one document

Kommentare: H2X is a fantastic software. I foundH2X very intuitive. It feels like a 21st century software and has an app like appeal, It is very easy and quick to use and takes a lot less time to teach new engineers how to use the software. I have used H2X on several projects . Generally I have used it for sizing domestic water systems and the associated plant items, the speed and simplicity in using the software defiantly makes my life a bit easier. It's a very comprehensive design software which I would recommend anyone to try.
Personally I found H2X very intuitive. A computer literature engineer could pick up the software in a day with no training. I like the flexibility in design, for example you can change the piping material or velocities across the whole project in a few clicks, alternatively you can manual change individual sections. Being cloud based and not being tied down to a specific desktop is very useful. The ability to output to Revit is a fantastic time saver.
The way it outputs the notes in the results page is limiting. Ideally you would be able to drag and drops the notes so it's cleaner, as in a busy drawing it can be difficult to read. Sometimes the error warnings may not be pertinent to the project for some reason, but there is not an option to hide or turn these off. However, if you submit the calcs to the client and their is a big yellow safety warning, it makes them nervous. I think it should be possible to turn on/off the warnings.

Hi Joe, Thanks for the detailed review, it's been great working with your team to date. I'm pleased to let you know that we listened to your feedback and in our recent release, we incorporated a warning review section with the ability to turn off warnings if you don't think they are relevant. I will let you know once we have a solution to the positioning on the pdf export. Thanks again!
A software that makes calculation easier
This software provides different calculation methods and can provide all the calculation result that may be rrequired.
Sometimes it's a little bit hard to change things. For example, if i want to increase the pipe size to minimise the friction loss, i will need to select all the pipe one by one ( they are separated by the fittings).

Hi Milly, Thanks very much for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We remember you mentioning this to us and because of the inefficiencies you experienced we have added a 'minimum pipe size' feature that will mean you never need to do this again. You can edit the minimum pipe size in Settings > Flow Systems. Also, using our 'select similar' feature, you can quickly edit the properties for multiple pipes or fixtures all at once. To select similar, firstly left click on the fixture or pipe and then right click and the select similar box should appear, here you can enter properties for fixture groups or pipes. I hope this helps, don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything or have any other ideas for new features.

Kommentare: As a heating installer we use H2X for all of our pipework design and now heat loss calculations aswell from PDF. It save us so much time, not sure how we survived before...!
Its well thought out for installers who don't use CAD but still need to be able to design systems, which is all installers. its alot of drag and drop and not alot of remembering which key does what so its easy to come back to if you haven't used it for a while
as a future ad on, it would be great to have radiator size choices generated from the room output required would maybe require manual input from a manufacturer data sheet though??
Kommentare: H2X has proved to be a useful and powerful tool to add to our office. The basic operation of the program is easy to adopt and the learning curve is reasonably linear. Like every program, there are tricks a tips to increase productivity and ease of use. The friendly and helpful staff are more than willing to help you adapt and progress with your operation of H2X.
H2X is an easy program to learn and use. The user interface is designed with an intrinsically logical progression of functions and operations. The calculations can be performed at any point during the design development to capture design errors and the effects of alterations immediately. The ability to select and fix pipe, fitting and fixture details and selections is very useful for design proofing and fault finding in new and existing service designs. Uploading and manipulating .pdf background documents is also easy and hassle free. New levels and relevant information are easy to add into the project. Scaling of .pdf background documents is easily done with a high degree of accuracy. Bearing in mind that a .pdf document is an image file with little intrinsic data relating to line accuracy or drafting limitations, H2X willingly creates usable design models with limited fuss. H2X is capable of calculating pressure systems to many different national and international design standards. The selection of design standard can be changed and recalculated at any point within the design process, the projects can be copied and saves as parallel models thereby allowing for side-by-side comparison calculations as required.
There are no warnings within the planning tab advising of the potential to move .pdf backgrounds within the H2X model, nor is there an option (that we found) to lock the .pdf back grounds into place. While we understand that H2X is a stand alone calculation program with output drawing frames to showcase H2X, it would be useful to have more flexibility with regard to drawing output framing and title blocks. The output drawings are centered about the H2X model as a standard and do not allow for nonstandard drawings or plot layouts that have additional information that displaces the model information. We understand that this is a web based program that enables H2X to be centrally controlled and located, however this is also an issue for those users with unstable / unreliable internet connectivity. H2X does not offer (within the trial version) an option for local installation, work and save on and of models.
