    Default Leader Micro2 wash cycle question

    The wash cycle on my micro is unbearably long. When I had one of Ray's Deer Run units, I simply heated condensate water in a turkey fryer to the required tempearture, dumped it in the wash tank, and ran it for however long the manual said. Could I do this with my already heated concentrate water coming off my preheater? I wonder how long I should run it? I plan to call Leader about this, but was just wondering.

    I preheat my my wash water to about 85 before putting it in the wash pail. I also new to the Micro2. From cold to 115=118 it takes about 45-60 minutes for mine to heat up.
