    Sugar content

    Sounds like your sugar content was around 1.25. Mine was running low one of the weeks we had all the rain so I just dumped it. Sugar went back up the following week.

    On my 2 x 3 flat pan I run it at about an inch. My preheater sits on top and I let it trickle in to maintain the 1 inch depth. I don't lose my boil this way.

    My sugar content this week has also dropped to around 1.5 or below. I too have to make a decision whether or not to boil or dump. That RO for next year is looking better and better.
