San Fran, eh? Long way from Dallas lol. As far as funneling it in, that only works if there's a good amount of subsidence under the slab. And in any slab, there are places with a lot of subsidence, then, a couple of feet away, it's packed solid.
The chemical will cost you around 80 bucks, a Shur-Flo pump goes for about 75 bucks, the hose is cheap, you won't need that much, a few feet is all, you can mix everything in a large bucket and move it around the garage as necessary.
As far as "injecting" your solution, you could make up something with ordinary pipe, which is what I used to make my tools, you can see them in this picture. If you can't, maybe a plumber can make them up for you. That picture, BTW, is in the "story" about a termite job in Atlantic City we did a few years ago. Story is at: http://www.unexco.com/gallery/atlcity.html
One of the downsides of DIY termite jobs is that, when you sell your house, the termite inspector is going to see the work you did and may ask you for paperwork to prove that it was done, or he may just tell you that you have to go back to that exterminator or have him do the job all over again.
And if you're still going to do the job yourself, remember to do all the slab and dirt-filled stoops that abut the house. These are PRIME areas for termite activity.
