AquaFlow 3.0 Design Software Toro

June 4, 2012, El Cajon, CA – Toro recently announced the launch of AquaFlow 3.0, the company’s newest drip irrigation system design software.

Now available for user registration and download, AquaFlow 3.0 provides designers with a new tool to configure drip irrigation systems for optimum performance using Toro’s Aqua-Traxx and Aqua-Traxx PC drip tape, as well as BlueLine Classic and BlueLine PC drip line.

Some of the features of the new software include:

  • Dashboard format with tiled graphs
  • Comparison of two different lateral selections
  • Pull-down menus for easy viewing
  • Multiple slopes in both the lateral and mainline programs
  • Choice of multiple sub-main and mainline pipe types and sizes
  • Lateral and sub-main flushing calculations

“The dashboard approach is a unique innovation that has been well received during beta-trials,” says Claude Corcos, senior marketing manager for Toro’s micro-irrigation business. “It enables designers to dynamically view any changes they make associated with the selection and sizing of laterals, sub-mains and mainlines. This helps save time and leads to better design selections.

“The ability to properly flush a drip irrigation system is often just as important as high system irrigation uniformity. Aqua-Flow 3.0 allows designers to view multiple aspects of flushing and irrigation at the same time, easing the decision making process.”

To help bring the numbers and data to life, the software generates colour-coded block maps that depict system uniformity, and are included in reports that may be customized and saved in multiple formats.

AquaFlow 3.0 is currently available in English and Spanish.
