Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mlap 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.

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 $.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GeezerPilot 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dafney 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric 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.

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!
