              Really pleased with this product
              Sanded and pressure washed our new PT pine deck, sprayed on the acorn brown with HVLP and back brushed with a roller on decking and sponged on rails. It really did a great job for a bunch of DIYers, soaked in easily dried quickly. We did have a mix up with the spray gun and applied it extra thick on part of the deck but it really just gave it a good variation of color that we didn't mind, we applied a second coat to the deck to even it out and just skipped over the heavy spots. Direct light brings out a reddish tone we like and you can see water repelling a day later when the the rain came to test it

                no transparent AT ALL
                Looking for a clear sealer for our deck, you can see that is a pink/orange color, not transparente at all as you can see in my photo (I only can upload one). Now I have a 5Gallons can that we dont like and wasted $90. If you want a clear and TRANSPARENT sealer, dont buy this one.

                Yes, this product comes in a clear and tinted. The clear stains are your best bet, however they would require more frequent cleanings and applications.  These would be closer to every 6 months or so.  The other stain options are going to add more color/opacity to the finishes.

                  Price can't be beat for a 5 gallon stain and sealant. Wasn't sure about the color but it came out nice. I expected a thinner stain due to it being fully transparent but it dries to a more semi transparent finish.

                  Went on easily
                  We used a Scotts 14 dollar sprayer used for weeds or whatever, we sprayed a thick layer on each board and followed up with a wide brush to apply evening. It came out amazing. The color was more red than we wanted but as it drys it is becoming less red. We will do the back yard in Maple Brown to hopefully avoid the red.

                    So far, this stain looks great. It's only been on the fence for less than 1 week. I applied the stain with only a brush, a stain bristle brush. The color is exactly what I wanted. Direct sunlight really makes this stain looks great. This stain exceeds my expectations. The price was very reasonable, it was basically half the price of a comparable 5 gallon stain. I will be purchasing this again for my next fence project.
