Well, I guess I know it' a four cylinder now! Thank you!

Simply has a series of pipes in the bottom of the spray tank. They made several different sizes of units. Originally these all used the wooden cypress tank, if taken care of they would last a long time. The solutions used would eat up a steel tank in no time.
And the wood might be cypress? I was enchanted by the I understand why it hasn't rotted! Thank you.
