The future of water management software

Network builder
See detailed information about every element on the network: pipes, junctions, tanks, valves, reservoirs and pumps.
Enrich your network even if you have already uploaded GIS files. Draw new elements, edit element properties, add new files or search for a new city template.
Your data is safely stored on the platform and is securely linked to your user profile. Network information can be shared by several users.

Step 1

Network Builder

If you don’t have a Geographic Information System (GIS) or you are missing some data, Qatium allows you to create your water network from scratch, either drawing your network elements or using some predefined network templates.

Step 2

GIS Upload

Our water modeling software offers an simple process to upload your Geographic Information System (GIS) and identify each element in your network, complemented with automatic topological corrections and hydraulic modeling.

Select the network element which more accurately matches your file. Qatium shows you only the potential elements: punctual or linear.
In case you do not have a GIS ready to upload, Qatium can offer you two other options: “city templates” or “draw the network on your own”.
The direct access into your network shows which level of settings it is. Comments can be made on the network you use every day, and you will be able to share it.
Hydraulic model
You’ll have a specific section for the network calibration which gives you the tools to manually minimize the difference between the real and simulated data but also offers you the option of choosing Qatium to do it automatically.
Qatium gives you information in real time of the accuracy level of your hydraulic model, globally. You can also see the model accuracy referred to in every parameter separately.
If the simulated quantities of your model are far from the real data, you can decide whether to calibrate your network manually or use the Qatium assistant to do it for you.
The different rates of pipe roughness automatically assigned by Qatium to network pipes will offer a representation of several groups within the map. You can change the roughness rates for each group and observe how the model varies according to your changes.
Every sensor or meter in the network gives you information about the RMS or the difference between the real data and the simulated one. You can compare the two curves and know the exact digression at every instant.

Step 3

Hydraulic models

You don’t need to be an expert to use Qatium. If you don’t know how to complete one of the steps, our virtual assistant guides you throughout the process and automatically calibrates the water distribution model for you.

Step 4


Get a simulated view of your network’s performance in the past, present and future. The platform compares real data versus simulated data.

Compare your base network with all those scenarios you might need.
Study the flow by area in your network to identify any irregular behavior.
Know the flow distribution in your pipes and how many miles those flows represent in the network.
Use the legends with filter options to easily locate the elements you are interested in.
The timeline is essential in our product. Move from the present to any instant in the past or advance to the future to check the model predictions and the variation in values.
Charts are an important aid in the product. They can be checked whenever you need to complete the map information or hide them to focus your study on any network element.
Decision maker
You can compare your base network with any scenario you create. Qatium gives you the option to create different scenarios so that you can check how the model behaves when a specific solution is applied.
Qatium provides you with an alert manager system to inform you about model predictions. You will be able to prevent many problems thanks to early detection.
You can check every alert detail, identify the referred elements in the network map and study the different solutions that Qatium suggests to you. Share any alert with the rest of your team and your supervisor.
If you decide to experience and study the Qatium solutions, you will be well- informed about every possible action and the correspondent network scenario which that action generates. You will be able to compare the different scenarios to then decide which solution would work better for the detected problem.

Step 5

Decision maker

Qatium supports you in your decision-making process by showing you a range of different scenarios. The app improves the efficiency of your water network, giving you the information you need to predict potential problems and react accordingly.
