    Default Tapping on hold

    Looks like 18" and climbing out there this morning. This snow and the cold weather to follow should hold off tapping for awhile. Early Feb. is fine with me.
    2 1/2 X 8 Leader revolution pans on an inferno arch with steamaway. 1500 taps, 600 gph Springtech RO, 3 vacuum systems (3/4 hp. Airablo, 2 hp. Tuthill oilring pump and a 2 hp. Busch claw pump)
