You know what stinks? A dirty pipe. The Pipe Cleaning tools are designed to easily update and track information about past and present pipe cleaning events.
Found under the Sanitary tab, once the tool is selected the “Select Pipe” menu appears over the Layers Legend. The menu provides selection tools in four different geometries for your preference. Choose one and select at least one pipe in the sanitary pipes layer.
Once a pipe (or more) has been selected, just click the “Add” button to add them to the cleaning collection. You can continue adding pipes to the collection or remove them. Once satisfied, click “Finish” to add a cleaning event to the collection of pipes.
Below is the attributes table where you input information or details about the pipe cleaning event.
An example of the filled out fields is provided below.
If you’re looking to conduct a simple update, select the “Update Year Cleaned” tool.
Once the tool is selected the tools dashboard appears on the left side of the screen over the Layers Legend. To select a pipe, use one of the selection geometries to highlight the targeted pipe you wish to update
Once the pipe is highlighted, select “OK” and the window below will appear. Enter the year in which the pipe was updated and select “OK”. Your pipe is updated with just a few clicks of a button.
