Pumps and Force Mains in InfoSWMM

Note: A pump is modeled in InfoSWMM somewhat akin to InfoSewer. You have a Wetwell connected to a Pump which in turn is connected to a Force Main. You can decide wheter a pipe is a Force Main or a Gravity Main by using the Atribute Browser and selecting Yes for Force Main and entering a FM Roughness.

You can also use the PickAx tool in the Attibrute Browser to convert the node from a Manhole to a WetWell / Storage node.
