Watercom is a Software development company specialising in water supply and distribution, and stormwater drainage. Programs developed by Watercom include PIPES, PIPES++ and DRAINS.

Watercom is Australian-owned and operated since 1998, we design, develop and support Australia’s leading modelling and analysis software for stormwater and drainage systems.

Developed and supported locally in Australia, DRAINS allows users to design and analyse stormwater drainage systems, produce summary graphs and tables, and create pipe long-section drawings.

DRAINS incorporates the latest Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) guidelines.

  • Draw drainage system components such as sub-catchments, pits, pipes, detention basins, channels and overflow routes.
  • Use several available hydrological models recommended by the ARR guidelines.
  • Solve the full unsteady flow equations in pipes, channels and overflow routes.

Over 1200 organisations in Australia and Globally have purchased DRAINS since 1998.

From you can download a demonstration version, examples and User Manual.
