This summer we plumbed 6,000 gallons worth of overflow tanks because we knew we’d have at least one run like last night. Our live webcams show nearly all of our tanks full this morning. Headed out now with both trucks to haul sap while the RO (Reverse Osmosis) machine concentrates sap to free up much needed tank space at the sugar shack.
Nothing like waking up to a giant rotten tree covered in poison ivy from a neighboring field laying across three mainlines. It also snapped a large fitting introducing a giant leak to the entire property. Timing couldn’t be worse with the sap flowing hard today, but we had it off and fixed in less than an hour. Lookin forward to firing up the evaporator this evening, lots of sap ready to boil!
