Kevin,

I will play with it as I go and see what happens. I dropped pressure down a little once I started recirculating.

Once you get the manual made then translate it into French and then back again.

OK done fighting this flying phone. Hydrochloric acid that maple supplies have for filmtec membranes is got Acid on front with scull and bones and corrosive sign of hands. Hydro is filmtec's first recommendation for acid wash cleaning of their membranes. 30 min. Spinning my wheels too long.

Acid wash when your flow rates slow and regular wash doesn't being it back to normal flow.
