Viking's new hydraulic calculations program "Hydraulic Assistant" is available at no cost to select Viking clients. Hydraulic Assistant can be used as a standalone desktop application or directly integrated into the Revit® environment. Once a user is authorized the program is available through the normal Viking Tools for Revit® installer.

At this time the program is only available in the Americas. As this availability changes notifications will be sent to registered users.
