How Do I Calculate the Size of Water Pipes?

Answer

To calculate the size of a water pipe, start by estimating the flow rate, pipe diameter and then measure the pipe run. Get the length of the pipe equal to resistance of fittings and then calculate the effective pipe length. In addition, get the pressure at the start of the section and at the end of the section to get the correct pipe size.
1 Additional Answer
You can calculate the size of water pipes by multiplying the product of the square of the radius and the height by 3.1412. The number 3.1412 is a constant called pi, arrived at by dividing 22 by 7. You can also get the rate of water flow by dividing the amount of water collected by the answer got in this calculation.
