Over time Nufer and Associates produces various applications on spreadsheet for rapid analysis of data. These are generally carried out using MS Excel - probably the most power general computational software platform in existence. These applications can be downloaded subject to acceptance of our download conditions.


TankSmartXL was developed at a time Brisbane in SE Queensland was in dire straights with respect to water supply, and everyone was installing tanks. These problems have eased for the time being but will re-emerge with the next dry spell.

Water is a massive problem all over the world, so TankSmartXL is offered as a tool for anyone out there as a computational methodology for dimensioning their domestic water supply situation.
