Top  Previous  Next

The Query Pipe command allows you to examine and edit a pipe that has already been inserted on a drawing.  Everything about a pipe can be edited, including size, flow values, and elevations.  Once the pipe flow values have been calculated, this command can be used to go back and size the pipes.  To query a pipe, select:
