    Since people are buried 6 feet down and maple roots go down 12 to 18 inches there should be no chance of a tree picking up any contaminants unless there is a very high water table.

    The temp to add wood can vary depending on your evaporator's efficiency and how far into the boil you are. I would reccomend that you fire as you normally do and watch the temps. Once you get going...

    I would run the tubing before the snow flies and even add in the drops so all you have to do in spring is tap. I prefer the 5/16 drops into a 3/16 lateral. Not sure on what you mean by distance...

    I purchased the line viper last year for my 3/16 lines and am very happy with it. I have to take down my lines each year. I start new each spring instead of trying to restring the old lines. Starting...

    The wash tank is essentially an open spot in a wash circuit. Once you have been circulating and everything is pretty well mixed a larger tank is not needed.

    You could try a caustic based cleaner and see if it helps. Organics clean up better with caustic and minerals with acid.

    As a tree freezes it causes a vacuum inside that can pull sap back into the tree from the drops. The 5/16 reduces the amount of sap that will be pulled back in due to the larger amount of air (gas)...

    I fill mine to the bottom of the threads. Hold at an angle until it starts going up the neck and you should have not problem with too much foam.

    With so little slope I personally would go with 3/16 all the way to the pump with no more than 30 taps per line. It will be difficult to keep the 3/4 main line from having any dips and that will kill...

    As long as you do not have a real long run from your head tank to the evaporator you should be fine at that size. I use a 3/4 on mine and usually run in the upper 40's to low 50's and have no problem.

    As far as I know the 304 rating should be good for food contact. It is the standard in the food industry. 316 is even better but more expensive. If possible try to get from a US manufacturer as some...

    I would guess that something is not put together correct. Too little filter aid and your pressure should spike before it is full of filter aid. Too much filter aid and it will take less syrup to fill...

    I would agree in staying with a 2 x 6. Depending on how you run it, people get from 25 to 50 plus on a 2 x 6. You can run it slower on small runs but have the capacity to let it RIP on heavy flow...

    The total elevation change is what is important, the slope is less of a factor.
