    I had an idea for writing a software for the DIYer. To plan and calculate their plumbing for their homes. Both potable and heating.

    I suppose I’d better not say too much about the proposed functionality (unless someone beats me to it ) but is this a fool’s errand ?

    Does such software already exist does anyone know? I couldn’t find anything similar to what I have been thinking about. Not for the DIYer.

    The idea I had is quite comprehensive.

    Without telling what it will calculate it’s hard to say it it already exists :cautious:

    Do you know anything about plumbing? I assume so.

    Think about the things that would be helpful when designing and planning a new system. Especially a more complex system. The calcs etc

    I’ve said too much ....

    I doubt that DIYers will be designing systems, in depth or not.

    I did. And over the past 20y I’ve talked to many who have. On forums like this and others.

    And I suppose it could be used by the (one man band) professionals too.
