Variables such as water use, number of uses per day and investment cost can be independently varied for 2 items for specified payback times and water cost to work out the true total cost.

Installation

Installation is simple just unzip the installer from the downloaded file, double click on the installer and follow the on screen instructions, shortcuts are installed for all users. As well as installing the program this will also install the help pages. EnCalcL can be safely installed over previous installations but it will need the water data re-entering if the configuration file is overwritten. The existing configuration file will be copied to EnCalcL.old. Start the program and enter the registration code to begin using EnCalcL. The program needs administrator privileges to install it. When upgrading do not allow the installer to overwrite the configuration file when prompted to retain previously saved water data values. If the program will not work properly check out the FAQ for suggestions.
