Advanced Drainage Systems launches app for planning agricultural drainage systems
Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) has developed the Agricultural Drainage App, a new mobile application for planning agricultural drainage systems, offering automatic calculations for both the proper quantity and type of pipe needed to achieve the drainage required. Free to download, it is now available from the App Store and on Google Play.
With simple inputs from the user like acres, drainage coefficient and grade; the app can calculate quantity of pipe needed utilizing the company's single wall, N-12 and HP pipe, determine the proper pipe diameter and the associated cost to drain the specified area.
The new ADS app incorporates other ADS design tools that can be used in planning a holistic agricultural drainage system. If a lift station is required, the Pump Size calculator allows the user to determine everything from the horsepower needed, the storage required, and overall system size. The ADS G.R.O.W. (Greater Return on Water Management) Analysis section gives the user the ability to determine their total cash return on an investment in field tile drainage.
More information about the app, ADS agricultural products and support tools can be found at ads-pipe.com.
