I need a pump and a releaser...

I want to put a few inches of mercury to my sap lines in the spring...

More Sap=More Syrup

I am looking on eBay. Lots of vacuum pumps for $20. However, a milking machine is about $75 on up.

I should be able to find one around here somewhere at a yard sale this summer...The releaser is the hard part...

What's a releaser?

Just what it sounds like...The vacuum pump is what supplies the suction, but you can't just suck it into the pump, so there is a 'releaser' upstream of the pump that dumps the milk/sap into the storage...

See the link below...

Oh,,That was something I needed to know because I wondered how the liquid was not drawn into the vacuum pump.I will see the clicker site to see that.Thanks Salmoneye.You was righton the fruit flies.I found part of a cantelope in a trash can.Maybe a leson on these bugs and ants would be to always try first to remove things that attract them.

So I know about fruit flies...Amazing what you can find, and where you can find it with a kid in the house...
