    All mine are NPT, but there are a bunch of non-Shurflo Shurflo pumps. That is they will come up in a Shurflo search, but the label is a different company.

    I ended up going with the curve on the insides of the trees and tying the mainline outward to the trees. It went well and I had a nice gradual arc, though I took a long time to do it. As I would...

    Curving Mainline

    Can I set a Shurflo below the tank so that it pulls vac on the mainline and pushes the sap up about 3-4' and into the tank. All the setups I've seen, including...
