    This is more labor intent...took about 4 hours to pump 8 gallon of treatment into tree. You put about 20psi on valves.

    You had to monitor in case a valve came out. We had about 50 valves.

    I don't have the words to describe how difficult this job is. Each guys digs a 6' deep hole to place a jack to level the slab. A couple guys were probably 50 years old.:(
