Monitoring System Operational

Our new monitoring system ,made by CDL, lists individual vacuum pressures in our 13 mainlines and releaser ( second picture). Those lines shown in green have excellent vacuum. Turning amber or red denotes something is preventing adequate vacuum ( leaks, frozen line, etc).

We then can direct our attention to these lines, saving enormous time and maximizing sap flow.

This weekends weather looks favorable to the beginning of our season.

This is the monitor image of our sugarbush. Each line on this google map image represents one mainline. Each will individually display the vacuum pressure reading so a low pressure line due to leaking will be readily identified for direct attention.
