Leader 30P 5/16 Lateral Line Plastic Tubing
This lateral line plastic tubing is made from virgin polyethylene and meets the highest standards for quality maple tubing. With the smoothest interior wall in the maple industry, it is ideal for new, high-output tubing systems looking for maximum flow and optimal sap quality.
The ultra-violet characteristic of this plastic tubing allows sunlight to pass through, as the plastic walls are very clear. This limits heating of sap within the tubing system. Cooler maple sap means cleaner tubing, cleaner storage tanks, cleaner maple evaporators, easier maple sap, and maple syrup to filter. All these things will translate into the best quality maple syrup.
Leader 30P Plastic Tubing is ideal for year-round tubing installation, because it will stay tight in all weather conditions, and is very sag resistant. Leader 30P lateral line tubing is also extremely easy to work with in a wide range of temperatures, from 10-70 degrees, with no changes in the application.
Best of all, Leader 30P tubing is Made in the USA at our corporate headquarters, in Swanton, Vermont.
All Leader 30P 5/16" Lateral Line Plastic Tubing comes 500 feet per roll. The light blue color means it draws the least amount of sunlight, and is the easiest through which to see the flow of maple sap. Light blue is also highly visible throughout the maple woods year round, making it easy to spot a line that is down or that has come apart.
