    Default Leader Micro 1 actual production capacities

    Thinking of upgrading my current RO and looking at the Leader Micro 1. From everything I have heard it is a well built unit but I cannot find any actual production figures on what it will do. I tap around 175 trees all on buckets and on a good day we may have 225 to 300 gallons of sap, usually around 2.0 %. What can this unit do with a run like that and how much permeate would be needed to do the wash at the end of the day. Assume I would want to concentrate to 6%.

    You will need about 65 gallons of permeate to do a wash and rinse.
