Hydrant Option or Pressure and flow

The hydrant option can be used to specify a flow out this could be a hydrant or hose stream allowance as required and in this instance you do not specify any pressure.  FHC will use the pressure at the given node and then just adds the additional flow.

The second option requires you to specify a flow and pressure.  This can also be used for the specifying a hydrant or hose reel system where you have a known flow and pressure requirement it can also be used water cannons and other devices where a nozzle is not appropriate.

One requirement of FHC is that at least one output must specify a pressure and flow before you can have a hydrant which only specifies a flow out.  So for instance with a hydrant example it cannot work if we only specified the flow from each hydrant has would not be a pressure reference point in the system.
