Maple syrup taps. A great maple tree tapping kit. Maple tree tapping yields maple syrup sap which is a sustainable and renewable product and can be tapped in your own back yard, neighborhood, or farm. This kit contains 10 pre-assembled food grade maple tree taps and tubing. When maple syrup season arrives, simply drill a 1 ½ inch deep hole into the maple tree with a wood boring 5/16 inch drill bit. Gently tap in the maple sap tap until the hammer begins to bounce back. Then make another 5/16 inch hole in the top of a milk jug, 5 gallon food grade bucket, or other clean food grade container. Insert the end of the tube into the container and you are maple sugaring - tapping maple trees, maple sap collecting, and on your way to making homemade maple syrup. Maple sugaring is a fun and easy project and a great outdoor activity for a family, school group, or outdoor enthusiast. Homemade maple syrup is an organic and gluten free food. Using these 5/16 inch maple syrup spiles will cause 30-35% less damage to the tree than the traditional 7/16 inch maple syrup stiles. The taps are super heavy duty and our tubing is a special blue color making it more bacteria resistant than traditional clear tubing because it draws less sun light, yet still shows the flow of maple sap. The blue color is also highly visible throughout the maple woods making it easy to spot when going to empty maple sap buckets. These maple taps, tubing, and book will become the core of your maple sugaring equipment and maple sap supplies. Their top quality construction will give you years of use. LIFETIME REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE ON TAPS AND TUBES.
