    Default Micro ro 1 & 2

    Tried looking stuff up on these but havent found much. Just wondering what everyone is getting for gph concentrate and permeate for both single post and double post. Think ive read that single post is suppose to do 125gph and 2 post was suppose to be 250gph? If you have one of these how many taps do you run? Looking at getting upwards of 1000 next couple years and wasnt sure if maybe this would be a little small or not. Thanks for all the help!

    I bought my micro 2 midway through the season this year and was happy with it for the money. Your numbers look about right for splitting sap into equal parts permeate and concentrate. You can push the sugar content a little higher in one go, but it won't be as fast. .

    Honestly though if you're talking about 1000+ taps, I'd be thinking hard about a 600 gph unit. Unless, that is, you're planning on getting a bigger cooker. Of course you can always use a smaller RO for a few years and upgrade when needed. It seems like they hold their value very well.
