Add Piping Systems & Connectors

We need more piping systems, such as- "Tempered Water" (works like Hot or Cold, using "Other" doesn't work) systems and connectors, and Hot Water Return (loops back into Hot Water) systems and Connectors. Maybe even Soft Water, but I think I can work around that.

Also, a Water Meter is needed to terminate Piping Systems.

I tried a Recirculation system, The Recirculation pipe goes from the "Hot water system" to the "Cold water system", just before the Water heater. This doesn't agree at all with the Revit MEP systems. Even if I loop the return within the hot system, the flows go away completely. This would need to be worked out in order to connect everything up properly.

Refrigerant Types (Liquid and Suction-Gas), PSI unit?
Temperature Losses and Vertical lengths critical!

Steam would be nice too, and a parmeter data type for steam flow (e.g. mass / time) would be really useful, too.

And...on the duct system type list, how about one for Ventilation Air (aka "Outside Air") ?

I know if you go to the MEP Settings, you can create a new "Fluid Type" and give the Temperature, Viscosity and Density, but the flow characteristics and the fluid behaviors are different with steam and refrigerant.

We definitely need Steam and Outside air Connectors, Systems, and Flow parameters. Autodesk, keep in mind there are multiple different steam systems, too, varying in pressure!

We also need a proper "Welded" Connection for piping, something like a Tap that doesn't break the main.
