Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyman Worked Great on Costco Marble Dining Table Top
See my before and after pics on a 3 year old Marble OUTDOOR dining table.
This is a 24 oz bottle and I used an ounce or two on a 84" X 48" Marble Table Top.
The product is great and it is awesome that you allow users to rate the products. I was in my Emeryville, CA Home Depot store looking at all these enhancers / sealers on the shelf and had no idea where to start so I took out my phone and checked on the ratings online. This one was the ONLY one with great ratings.
I used two coats and wiped off any excess with a cotton rag before 5 minutes of drying and waited 30 minutes between coats. I don't think I even needed a second coat because I couldn't tell any difference from the first coat but I thought be on the safe side. the 5 minute and 30 minute times are right from the bottle so I simply followed directions.
I bought this dining set in 2012 and was about to return it to Costco - they are going to TAKE IT for a store credit of $2400 if I want but there are other chips in the table to the manufacturer is going to send me a new top free and then I will seal that one so I don't have the same problem I had with the first one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hawks NOT AS DESCRIBED - RUINED TILE
We remodeled our kitchen in 2016 and used natural slate and glass tiles for the backsplash. We used "Aquamix enrich and seal" color enhancer sealant. It looked beautiful for the first month, but then began peeling more and more. We are at the point now where we will need to strip and reapply something only 6 months later like some of the other reviews say.
I contact the company for help and got a nasty email in reply saying we applied it wrong, and it is not a sealer like advertised. This is part of the unprofessional response I received from the company:
"When properly applied the sealer is not designed to give a shine, coating or topical skin finish. The Aqua Mix Enrich N Seal is a below surface enhancing/darkening sealer, designed to darken ALL absorbent surfaces without a sheen or coating. When applying the sealer it is important to wipe the surface dry using a clean dry paper towel, cotton towel, or micro fiber towel to help drive the sealer into the pores and completely dry off of the surface."

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LoyalHDShopper NOT FOR USE OF POLISHED SLATE
If you have slate with naturally occurring beautiful metallic colors and shine and you want to make it ordinary looking slate with no character, then this is your product. I used this as a pre-grout sealer which was a horrible mistake. Thanks to this product, I now fully agree with the people who say you shouldn't mess with nature and should leave natural stone as it was created without sealers. I honestly didn't expect such a dramatic change in the appearance of the stone. See picture where top stone is treated and bottom stone is not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dutch Aqua Mix Enrich 'N' Seal Travertine Stone Sealant
I used this product to enhance and seal my travertine floors right after they were installed 2 years ago. Works wonderfully and have not had problems with it. I am reapplying to walkways that are used daily as the area is showing some wear.
Easy to apply, wipe off after 5 minutes and allow to absorb for a couple of hours before walking on the surface. Beautiful, no splotchy finish!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda Ceramic Tile Sealer Disaster!!!!
I purchased the Aqua brand sealer at the suggestion of the sales clerk. I was assisted by the sales person in making tile purchases and the clerk made the recommendation. I mentioned several things to the clerk, (1) I had used a different sealer in the past that was currently still sold. (2) The price was 50% lower, (3) the installation was easy AND most siginifcant, I had experience with the product and knew the results. The clerk insisted the AQUA sealer was superior, and the additional cost was worth it. I had no problem putting the sealer down. The after effects created the problem. My new tile had a horrible fuzzy coating. I began the clean up within hours yet it took days and a tile cleaning product to remove the haze. The added cost for the AQUA product has made this projects cost excessive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jim enrich n seal was a poor product , left grey dull appearance.
My experience with this product was very poor. It left a grey dull appearance on my rock surface. It was very expensive. This is a very poor product and the results I got were a major disappointment

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim By far the best that I've come across
I needed to restore about 1000 square feet of a polished marble floor at a local church. After grinding down the marble using 800 - 3000 grit diamond pads I had a good finished surface but needed to apply an enhancing (darkening) sealer. I tried a number of small containers of products before I "committed" to the entire floor. Aqua Mix was far and away the easiest to apply, the easiest to wipe off (You need to wipe off all of the excess after about 5 minutes) and having made the commitment to use this on the entire 1000 square feet - it looks excellent. I very highly recommend this. However as a word of caution, Home Depot does offer another enhancer and sealer from Tilelab. I have written my review on this as well. In my test of samples it was quite simple to decide NOT to go with that product. One note I need to add on the Aqua Mix - it is described on the container as "no sheen" which frightened me a bit because I still wanted the glossy marble finish. In my experience it did not detract from the glossy surface that the marble was already ground down to and I still was able to get an almost mirror like finish. While the product is easy to wipe on using a clean cloth - it was really easy using a cheap "wet mop", the type that uses replaceable microfiber pads and has a little tank attached to the handle and a trigger that squirts a bit of fluid ahead of the mop. Fill the container with the Aqua Mix, add a couple of helpers with clean cotton towels to wipe off the excess and 1000 square feet can be knocked out in under thirty minutes - it was even fun, especially seeing the final result!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Midloyo worth the $
I really like this product. I applied it gently once with a rectangular paint pad. We did a tumbled marble backsplash. It brought out the beauty of the tile. I sealed the tile with this product first. I then grouted and sealed the grout with a clear sealer because we didnt like the grout darker, which it will be if you use enrich and seal on the grout. The tumbled marble tiles look better when you grout the entire tile, and the grout looks better when lighter with our tiles. It took more steps but we love the results. This 24 ounce bottle goes far. Have plenty for another 1 or 2 projects depending on size.
