    I would definitely give the Purtrex PX05 filter a try first. Anything else and I could visibly see air bubbles in the tubing between the filter and the pump.

    My RO is a pressure pump only model, with the filter before the pump. I found early on it will only work well with one particular brand of filters, Purtrex. They are the "fuzzier" ones, and not...

    Same. Seems like the year of "one gallon per tap, per day" type runs. Never had a 2 gallons per tap day, and never overwhelmed. If we can squeeze out two more good runs of good tasting syrup I...

    If that long range forecast holds, I'm looking at about 8 more days left to the season. Not sure I (or my trees) can do another week without a freeze this late in the season.

    I think you can build one this size for about 50% to 60% the cost of a bought one, take or give. For me, I had never run an RO nor did I completely understand all the different components of the...

    It's a Universal 400 gallon. Don't have the model offhand without going in the woods to find out. It's very short and squaty. Only reason it would be nice to know is I pump it up to my 275...

    Tapped my main woods yesterday, which accounts for about 2/3rds of my total taps. Will wait on buckets until next week and tap the last two tubing lines early next week also.
