Sap Ladder or Booster?
I have a milk bucket washer as a releaser. So here is my dilemma, I have about 300 ft of mainline sloped at 2% to the lowest point in my woods, from there I have about 75' of black line which is connected to the 300' and runs uphill to my shack, at approximately 12 -14 ft of vertical height. The float in my releaser wont work if I increase the vac any higher than 17-18" hg, should I install a ladder or booster so I don't have to pump it from the low point to the storage barrels. Now under full vac I can pull it uphill no problem, but the releaser wont reset. Any ideas would be appreciated.
