If you are someone who needs to get new pipes fitting in your house and get the drainage system replaced then you would do well to make sure you have a good idea of how big your pipes need to be so that they can adequately transfer the liquid but also not take up as much space in the walls of the house. There are a couple of things here that you would need to consider when you are getting the plumbing work done, namely; the size of the pipe over all, the circumference of the inside of the pipe versus the circumference of the outside of the pipe, and what amount of liquid can safely travel through it so not cause leaks but also not to cause a back up in the water or sewage supply of your house. Luckily, there is an easy way to compute the flow rate of a pipe and it can be done even if you are not all that great at math.
All you need to do is use a pipe flow rate calculator app or website. You can find these online with some ease. Once you have this in you can very easily plug in the values that you need and it will be able to calculate the correct flow speed and rate for you so that you can avoid any and all confusions that may come from trying to calculate it with a pen and paper. You can input things like the pipe’s thickness, the diameter of the inner circumference of the pipes, and you can even add the density of the liquid to help the process along. This will help you calculate the flow velocity and you can confirm if its a viable option for your house.
