WaterNET Pump and Reservoir Model

WaterNET Pump and Reservoir Model

WaterNET Pump and Reservoir Model

I have two questions for anyone that can help me. I have modeled a fire water line network using Boss' WaterNET program. I am modeling the two connections from my model to the city's public system as a reservoir with a pump at each connection.

My first question, when it comes to defining the pump there is "speed factor" variable which the default is set to 0. Can someone explain to me what this factor represents? I am having a little difficulty understanding the explanation under the program's help menu.

My second question. After setting this value (pump speed factor) to blank (removing the zero) amd openning the pump as its initial condition per Boss' Technical Assistance represantive, I ran the program but in the output file I am getting that one of the pumps is still off. Can someone consider and share as to why this may be?
