Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has any experience or info on using lime (I am thinking hydraulic lime for this) to protect fence posts from rot and termites? I was imagining soaking post bottoms in a 5 ga bucket of an activated hydraulic lime solution, like maybe a dilute solution. The extreme alkalinity it self may have an effect like burning the posts, as folks have done traditionally. Anyone tried this post in lime idea?

Thanks.
