Answer: 
No, this stuff does not work well in a sprayer. It will only come out in a thin stream and you will have to go back and brush or rub or roll it in to cover the wood adequately. I talked to Thompson's about this, and they confirmed this to be the case. They said the best way to apply it is to roll it on with a roller.

Can this be used with painted wood? If so, should the wood be painted before or after sealant?

I am looking to seal an outdoor play structure we are building, but we will also be painting parts of the play structure. Wondering if I should use sealer on all the wood and paint over, or just use exterior paint for the painted portions and sealer on the rest.

Answer: 
Only use stain or in this case, sealer, over unfinished wood.
It will NOT work over a painted surface. If you are going to place paint over all surfaces, I would recommend you to instead use an exterior-rated oil based primer.
Use that to seal and coat the wood, and then you can use an exterior-grade paint to go over that for the best protection.
No sealer will take out certain staining from the wood Read More

No sealer will take out certain staining from the wood grain, but a primer will.

Answer: 
Talked to Thompsons about this. They said that you would have to stip/sand the wood if you want to use an different stain/sealer product in the future. If you use a Thompson's stain/sealer in the future, you would need to clean the wood first but would not have to strip/stain it.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product I dont know why everyone's saying it won't spray. I use this product all the time on decks and fences and have zero problems with it. I have a mid-grade pump sprayer with a fan tip that i leave the product in all the time. I dont clean it, I just refill and it sprays perfectly. It gives dried wood a darker appearance for a number of months and can be reapplied with no further preparation. There are better products out there which cost much more, but there are much worse products that cost the same. I'd recommend this to anyone. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thompsons on my Deck I just love the way this product made my deck look.It looks Great May 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed I have used Thompsons sealer for the past 10 years. I have always used a garden sprayer to install on my deck. On this purchase of the 5 gallon bucket, the product was very thick and would not spray. I returned and picked up new 5 gallon can and 2, 1 gallon buckets. All were the same, and all would not spray, and all were returned for full $ return. Home Depot had no other clear sealer that was able to spray. I tried 2 different pump sprayers and 6 different nozzles with no results. Don't know if this was bad batch or changed formula, just would't spray. Stopped at Sherwin Williams on way home and picked up 5 gallon bucket of their product and everything sprayed the way the Thompson product used to work, but for twice the $. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product Thompson water sealer is one of the best products to protect wood and other materials from the elements. I highly recommend for wood decks, stucco, brick, and wood fencing. March 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AWFUL STUFF--HD SHOULDN'T SELL IT! II've used Thompsons water seal for years but they've done something to it that makes it impossible to use with a sprayer. I bought a new 5 gal. can a few days ago and tried to use it today. It is full of small gelatinous particles that instantly clog the screen in the deck sprayer. I tried stirring it thoroughly sigh a power stirrer, but that did nothing to solve the problem. I'll try to find something else, but this stuff goes into the toxic waste ASAP. A real waste of $65. September 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mixed Review - But It Does WaterProof! The Good - It works! It really does waterproof. It dries OK if applied on sunny day in 48 hours. It is thick and you need to brush it out thin. Only need a thin layer to waterproof. It dries clear. It is long lasting. 1 yr in windy rainy areas or 2 yrs in more protected areas. The Bad - It does not spray. Needs brushing. It is thick and does not thin with additives. The Ugly - It does darken wood. Warning - Do not confuse the GREEN Wood Only WaterProofing with the All Purpose Concrete/Wood WaterProofing. The All Purpose WaterProofing is Lots Of Trouble. May 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't even last for 9 months Thompsons water sealer products are nothing special. Our fence began looking damaged after 9 months. Do yourself a favor and use Ready Seal instead. You won't regret it. August 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Product I purchased 5 gal. of the Thompsons clear waterproofing last week. It was horrible. It will not spray and has to be brushed on. It doesn't state this anywhere on the label. The other thing is that it dries really slow. almost 72 hrs at 82 degrees here in Florida. I will never buy this product again! July 10, 2015
