    Default can pumps be modeled at all in pipes

    I want to model an existing sewer system for a medium sized community using pipes. Is this advisable at all? Is there any decent way to model pumps within ACAD? I'm not seeing any way to simulate daily flow.

    Daily flow could be a inflow hydrograph attached to the top end of the
    leterals.
    Pumps, I think not.

    A static modeler is ok for a sewage system or any other closed system. Mike has it right calculate your average daily flow and enter it into the the system as inflow. I would caution anyone trying to use a static modeler for a drainage system, unless you have sufficent topographic relief and a tailwater condition that can not adversily affect your system.
