    fluid plateaus when interacting with obstacle

    I have this problem that I've been trying to fix for a few months on and off. I prefer to figure things out for myself but this one is stumping me. This first screenshot is to give you an idea of how the fluid works.

    After the fluid stops I expect it to drip off, but I get these weird plateaus in the fluid on the head.

    It ruins the effect. It would be passable if there was an air gap if it was smooth all over. The above is from the fluid sim baking at 400 res. I tried to bake it at 700, but I just get more fine plateaus. I can't go beyond 700 resolution for the sim due to hardware constraints.

    Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this? Unfortunately I can't post the .blend file because it's work-related.

    Without a file to examine, there is a ton of possible points of failure, so we can not know. Could you supply a file?
