    Can you define what is too much - too little? I can regulate air from bubbles blasting syrup up to the rafters - to fully closed - or rolling like a lava lamp..but am still experimenting.

    Thank you for that link Dr Tim. If I understood it correctly, Mr. Vernon states that his air is injected - at the top of the flue - and not the bottom.

    Jason, now I get it. Been reading up on RO’s and too much capacity can be a problem when it comes time to clean.
    Hope the leader manual is helpful...most are fairly vague.

    Jason - curious as to why you would want to go to a single post? This RO stuff is still new to me. Thanks

    I think not running syrup through a pump (brass or pneumatic) could be a plus. One less thing to keep clean and one less thing to affect flavor?

    The H20 Air injection does not use an air compressor, rather a high volume air blower drawing through 3 charcoal filters. Sounds like a 747 Jet engine...

    To me, it seemed that our syrup taste this year was not as maple as in past years. Could be the lighter color (and flavor?) due to air injection, or any number of things.

    I got the same impression. We definitely made lighter syrup this year with air injection but I think our taste wasn’t the same. It would seem that one may cancel the other?

    I may pipe my air injection system into my sap tank.
    I’d think a few minutes of that should add lots of oxygen.
    It’s charcoal filtered air, so should not introduce any off flavor.
