    Calculating fixture units through T's

    Hello all,

    My firm uses Revit as a drawing software, we draw pipes in it and coordinate them but haven't used the software to it's potential; calculating waste loads in pipes so I don't have to manually count them, among other functions.

    I've managed to get my fixtures to communicate fixture units to the piping system, and I've gotten p-traps to carry these values through, but anything with more than one in and one out doesn't calculate through.

    I've tried lots of configurations modifying the families to try to get them to carry fixture units through the fitting, but can't get the calculations to come through.

    Anyone have advice?
