Simple Blade Calculator

I love the blade calculator, But :) if the person that made that could contact me or make a page for use in water that would be good. I have a water system that I am having problems designing a blade for and would actually like a blade that was meant to work instead of guessing at what would work best.

Hi Innovo. I wrote the PHP code for that page, and it is based on some fairly complex aerodynamic formulas... I still have quite figured out how to apply the Reynold's number...

Sure I could try and do something for water, but I guess the base formulas are completely different, due to the fact that water is so much less compressible than air. If you can find/give me some formulas, I can try and code them into a similar page for hydro.
