    100 gpd x 4 is 400 gpd divided by 24=16.66 gal/hr. Does yours now handle about 16+ gal/hr? If not, find out how much pressure your current components will handle, (plumbing, canisters etc.) Then just...

    Does the system utilize batteries for when there's no sun? Also I assume it's for vacuum, does it run overnight when the temperatures are above freezing? Be sure to place the solar panel where it...

    The best way I've found is to run the drop on the hook or eye after you go around the tree. That way you have no "dead" section. Then when you clean the lines that gets cleaned too.
