    Yikes! No water at your facility? What about a wash/fill/load pad?

    I'm sure you're working on it, but I'd make fast tracks to have a properly equipped pesticide handling facility to be in the business.

    How about your house, the fire hydrant (mentioned) or one of your "friendlier" customers?

    Check w/ your local DPW or Fire Dpt in your area. They should be of help.
