HydraCALC – Hydraulic Calculations from Revit Models

From the HydraCAD website:

HydraCALC for Revit™ Software

HydraCALC for Revit will produce hydraulic calculations directly from standard Revit drawings. This software can use the families that ship with Revit, with just a few user-initiated changes. HydraCALC for Revit includes HydraCALC, our industry leading stand-alone calculation software.

HydraCALC Does the Work

Just as it does with any HydraCAD drawing, HydraCALC performs quick and accurate calculations with printout and all of the powerful tools provided by our premiere hydraulic calculation software.


  • Full compatibility with NFPA 2007 printout requirements
  • Library of pump and backflow device curves included
  • Full screen graphics display
  • Use multiple pump and water supply arrangements
  • User definable pump and backflow curves
  • Backflow loss read automatically off of curves based on flow required
  • Designate flow schematic reference points or let the program generate them automatically
  • Enter actual diameters for each pipe or use nominal diameter and pipe type
  • Enter diameters for each pipe with a simple mouse click and make global or line-by-line changes to input
  • Automatic remote head location and auto-peaking of a calculation
  • Fitting equivalent length adjusted based on pipe type
  • Automatic error checking
  • Calculates using Velocity Pressure or Total Pressure
  • Calculates using Hazen-Williams or Darcy-Weisbach
  • Displays and instantly updates calculated flow, pressure and velocity for each pipe
  • Graphical Pressure Usage Display readily displays where pressure is being used

  • Quickly set up or estimate a system using included HydraCALC Sizer

  • Flow schematics for checking data
  • Many predefined submittal printout forms
  • Review printouts on the screen or send directly to printer
  • Submit calculations to AHJ electronically
  • Reports come in the following languages - French-Canadien Swedish Icelandic English

  • Unlimited pipe types and fittings tables
  • Change pop-up menu defaults
  • Use either Imperial or Metric (bar and kPA) and convert between them

  • Integrates with HydraCAD™, the most capable full-design package in the industry. A job designed in HydraCAD can be analyzed with Hydraulics; adjustments can be made and changes will be returned to the drawing automatically.

HydraCALC is brought to you by Hydratec. It's priced at 1,680.00 USD.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2017, 2016, and 2015.

There's more information available on the HydraCAD website.
