I think they were lost in the last server up grade so let's try it again. The gas unit is a 250gph and the electric is may 375 gph

The flows were very good. At the start of the season we would get thru a 1000 gals from 2%-11% in 4-5 hrs a 170gal boil but we also started the evap at 6% just to get things going. First pass went from 2-6% then we reculataed to 11% while pulling off small amount to feed the evap. ALL in all very pleased with the unit. Some modifcations are done and to be done. We added an inline strainer ahead of the feed pump. Next season I want to add heating elemnts to the wash tank the bucket heater just doesn't cut it , a 3way valve on the concentrate discharge port for easier washing. Also a port to test sugar content without getting into a tank to test. But I'm very pleased with the unit for the $ it is an exellant buy. I got all of what I payed for. A thought that I would like to pass along . Buy a larger unit than you think you need it saved so much time for me. My evap could have kepted up with a 250 but having RO faster ment we could get to the higher concetrations faster. Next year we are adding another 1000 taps I will get the extra set of membranes to put on my unit and make it a 500 gph.

Firetech, congrats on the RO you ordered. I'm concidering his 125. If you would pass along his phone number that would be great. Maybe PM me with it. Is he pickup only cause i'm in Minnesota and i think he's Pennsylvania maybe Ohio?
