Put in a two smaller sap ladders. you shouldn't lose too much vacuum, and you can get the sap to the releaser. 17 inches will be fine for this, if you have two 8 ft ladders in two places for a total of 4 ladders, to lift the volume from 300 taps. eventually if you add more taps or higher vacuum you may want to add more ladders near the two you have.
