Default Fence Posts

Putting in a privacy fence this week, and sinking about 26 4x4's with one 80lb each, and gravel under. My yard stays pretty wet after a solid rain.

Should I coat the bases with a wood sealant/protectant, or do you think the treated wood will be fine?

If so, what do you recommend?

I would go buy some copper napthant and coat the part of the post thats in contact with the ground with that. Pressure treated doesn't seem all its cranked up to be anymore.

I just had a porch and deck redone in northern CA and the contractor suggested that before I could tell him!!

You can always coat them with roofing tar. The concrete will eventually trap water.
