    Netspliter, another thing that could cause your one lateral to not run would be a wood shaving or other obstacle blocking flow by getting caught at one of the Tee's.

    The season started for me today. I checked yesterday around 6PM EST, and nothing was flowing.

    Woke up, went to check my tank, I started hearing a hissing sound as I got close. It was completely full, all 40 gallons, and it is pretty air tight, so the sap was trying to come through the lid. My other lateral which is going into a 7 Gallon bucket was completely full as well.

    It was flowing like a water spout.

    I got my RO out and been using it a good part of the day. The sugar content was pitiful though - around .5 - 1% average. I probably condensed 80gallons into 15 gallons by the time it was over with. No way I could of made it this season without an RO - not with that kind of sugar content.

    Even my regular tree that is beside my house on a bucket had lower sugar content than normal (it is always a reliable 1.5%, but today it was 1%).

    Just glad to have some sap though, looking forward to boiling this weekend.
