Problem Description

Does selecting 'True' for "Has Check Valve?" contribute to the additional headloss or does that need to be accounted for in in the "Specify Local Minor Loss" area?

Solution

Clicking 'True' on the pipe element to indicate there is a check valve does not contribute to an additional headloss. You would need to account for it as a minor loss.
