Pump (Water Overlay)

Pumps are constructions which can move water against its natural flow. Specifically, a pump with a positive pump speed will pump water from the entry point with the lowest initial water level to the entry point with the highest water level. If no water level is defined for an entry point, the surface height is taken.

Icon Attribute Unit Description Default value
Waterwizard icon pump q.png PUMP_Q m3/s The speed at which water is pumped from the lower end-point to the higher end-point. n/a
Waterwizard icon lower threshold.png LOWER_THRESHOLD m The threshold of the lower entry of the Pump. Water flows from the lower entry to the higher entry until the water level at the lower entry has reached the threshold. If not selected, the Lower Threshold will be ignored as a mechanic. None
Waterwizard icon upper threshold.png UPPER_THRESHOLD m The threshold of the higher entry of the Pump. Water flows from the lower entry to the higher entry until the water level at the higher entry has reached the threshold. If not selected, the Upper Threshold will be ignored as a mechanic. None
Waterwizard icon inlet capacity.png INLET_CAPACITY m3/s The maximum possible m3 water that can flow through this Pump. n/a

Notes

  • A negative value for the PUMP_Q attribute is also allowed, in which case water can be pumped in the reverse direction. Sometimes referred to as draining.
