Customer Comments

These are real, unsolicited comments from HydroCAD customers.

"This is one of the best hydrology software models I have ever worked with. It is easy, powerful, and very well documented." - Maryland Dept of the Environment, Dam Safety Division.

"Best software on the market, particularly its ability to do simultaneous routings. Very powerful analytic tool that's becoming more and more important in my work."

"We have to provide our reviewers the most transparent and intuitive report that we can generate, and HydroCAD excels at doing just that! Honestly, I have never seen a more intuitive piece of software. It should be a mandatory course in every civil engineering curriculum at the bachelor level.  Thanks for making life easier and I hope you all the greatest success in the future development of this gem."

"Best price value. Use it for plan review, pond & culvert sizing, watershed analysis, storm system design, etc."

"I find HydroCAD extremely useful in my practice and have yet to encounter a scenario which was not readily modeled.  We have used it for ponds, underground storage, exfiltration galleries, rain gardens, pipe/surface storage, etc.  Really great stuff - I enjoy working with it!"

"Truly the best customer service I have ever received from a software company "

"Your program and support is the best I have ever experienced!!"

"HydroCAD is perfect for investigating both very simple and very complex stormwater systems. Once a model is set up, it is very easy to make alternative (what-if) runs. Support is fantastic and your on-line examples are also a real benefit. HydroCAD is also frequently updated and improved and the updates are always very good.  I wouldn't think of using another stormwater analysis program and have recommended HydroCAD to many of my colleagues. HydroCAD is an outstanding product."

"HydroCAD has made my work life a lot easier!"

"You folks do a great job with HydroCAD, its inexpensive, logically displayed, user friendly, and very fast. Excellent Job!  Other software companies are crazy expensive like Bentley with its annual fees."

"Congratulations on a great program. I've really seen it grow in use in our area. It is now the standard."

"I am a very satisfied HydroCAD user...  It is simple to learn, and the output is the most compact and logical of any software I've seen."

"Wonderful product BTW. I've used Haestad & Intelisolve for over a decade. I picked up a 20-node HydroCAD for a particular project because of its integration with the Cultec products. So I was surprised that it was so good. No more Haestad & Intelisolve: I've become an official HydroCAD switcher!"

"Thank you for your quick response, I swear that HydroCAD has the best customer support I have ever experienced. Thanks again."

"I now use your software on every project, from the smallest house site to large scale subdivisions. Truly the most useful piece of software I have purchased. At this point, use is almost intuitive. I hate to think of the time I would waste without it. And believe me I do not dispense praise lightly. I am now touting your product to every Municipality I work with. Hope that works for you. Keep up the good work."

"I think your program is great. Its easy to use, fast, bug-free, and contains all the bells and whistles I need or desire."

"I am a very happy user of Hydrocad. I have used many packages over the years, and still use some others from time to time for special situations, but HydroCAD is best and easiest to use for the vast majority of projects."

"HydroCAD is a very intuitive program and is very reasonably priced. I can't imagine paying the ridiculous price for the Haestad product! HydraFlow is fine, but once you use HydroCAD its hard to go back to anything else."

"Thanks for your help. I just wanted to say that hydrocad is great!! Simple and easy to understand right out of the box. This program is very intuitive and stable unlike other products that are on the market or free."

"HydroCAD is perfect for investigating both very simple and very complex stormwater systems. Once a model is set up, it is very easy to make alternative (what-if) runs. Support is fantastic and your on-line examples are also a real benefit. HydroCAD is also frequently updated and improved and the updates are always very good.   I wouldn't think of using another stormwater analysis program and have recommended HydroCAD to many of my colleagues. HydroCAD is an outstanding product."

"Hydrocad is EXACTLY what I need. A small simple program (that is better than using HEC-1 cards) to create the model.   The stage-discharge feature is perfect and it has a broad-crested weir to boot. The orifice calc. even asks if its vertical or horizontal. Sweet!  Its an affordable software also."

"Outstanding customer service."

"I recently took it upon myself to evaluate a number of stormwater analysis programs for the Stormwater Engineering Review Section of the City of Vancouver, WA. ... I have found that HydroCAD has been the best not only from the user friendly side, but also, from the cost side. The initial start up cost and the ability to expand it in reasonable amounts of nodes and cost is great. "

"Thank you for your quick replies. HydroCAD is one of the few (ok only) software program that responds in such a timely manner. I have also found that the information we receive from you is very helpful and accurate!"

"HydroCAD-7 is a great update!  Lots of great features and very easy to use."

"..outstanding email support.."

"I use your training DVD all the time.  Its super."

"HydroCAD is an outstanding product and by far the easiest to use hydrology software I have found."

"Your program is such a relief, easy to use and to the point but as powerful as you would like to make it.  Congrats on a great program."

"I looked and looked on the web for a decent hydrological program... I downloaded the sampler and messed with the tutorial for 10 minutes.  I completed my first project in 47 minutes, so of course I bought the program...  HydroCAD is quick and clean and flexible.  Thanks."

"I found it very easy to install the software and network the license.  It's really quick and foolproof."

"We have been using HydroCAD for several years for storage and treatment system design and have found it to be a very powerful combination of routines for a variety of tasks. Definitely a bargain for the price!"

"I have used HydroCAD for over four years. Of all the software that are currently available in the market, this program has the maximum cost to benefit ratio. You can't go wrong with HydroCAD. User friendly and good customer support."

"Really intuitive...HydroCAD-6 is everything I hoped it would be."

"HydroCAD is an inexpensive solution to many hydrologic calculation and design issues.  ...it does many calculations in an easy-to-follow format with detailed customizable printouts."

"HydroCAD-6 is great! I spent ten minutes with your tutorial, and had my first project completed within one hour."

"You have a great program!"

"HydroCAD is a great bargain...can do everything I need...its a real winner.  Thanks for sticking it to the overpriced big guys."

"I was too impatient to read the tutorial, but I really didn't need to...  I particularly like how the CN values are displayed and entered.  Thank you for the effort."

"We are very pleased with the increased functionality and ease of use.  We look forward to many years of HydroCAD use and service."

"I've been using the Windows version for a couple of months and have found it to be quite intuitive, easy to use and small.  All things I look for in software and rarely find."

"Have you tried HYDROCAD? I've been using it for about 6 months now and love it! Definitely worth checking out."
