Do NOT use this!
I thought being a waterbased product cleanup would be easy and it was , however after only one year all the 1 yerar old deck lumber i treated turned a nasty grey colr, dried out, shrank and cracked! This is the worst product i have ever used. Total garbage! Thompsons from now on!

    Used with my spray gun, it went on easily and smooth and dried relatively quickly. Easy clean up. I would definitely recommend this product. First rain storm after application beaded up nicely.

    Easy to use
    This was my first time using this product. I used it to seal my concrete driveway after power washing. The driveway does not have much of a topcoat, my father said the builder poured the driveways in the pouring rain 30 years ago, so it is very porous. A sealer helps prevent algae and grime build up. The Olympic Waterguard was easy to apply using my garden sprayer. I was concerned about pouring it into the sprayer from a 5-gallon bucket and I asked the Home Depot salesperson if they had a spout that would work with this product, and she said no. When I got home, I was pleasantly surprised that there is a small, flexible spout built into the lid. Although there was some spilling with the first couple fillings it wasn't nearly as bad as it would have been without the spout. I filled the sprayer on the driveway I was sealing and used a broom to spread anything that spilled, and it came out fine. Cleanup is easy with soap and water. It has rained since I applied the sealer and the water beaded up and ran off as expected. It did not make my driveway slippery. Hopefully it will last a long time.

    Never dries
    Used this product on quality grade raw pine for slats on bench. Shaped and sanded wood to an 220 finish. Applied multiple light coats and waited longer than recommended time between coats. 72 hours later neither fronts or backs are dry. Sticky to touch and color transfers to clothing. $40 and 6-8 hours of work wasted. Now I’m stuck deciding to spend more money on a clear polyurethane seal in an attempt to salvage the project or start all over with new wood. Such a disappointment and frustration.

      Never Fully Dries - Sticky Mess
      This stuff is an absolute waste of time and has ruined my project. The bad reviews one here 100% coincide with my experience. It has a this film that rubs off every time i touch. It never fully dries, and is a sticky oily mess. All and all its a total mess, even after an application of their clear "Sealer". About $40 down the drain so far on this project the following day. Note: conditions -> This is after 24hrs of cure time, not super hot, not super cold and about 30% humidity.

        Perfect protection from and kind of weather
        This was exactly what I needed with perfect results. The photo I show does not do it justice. A beautiful finish, and perfect protection from rain, sun, and snow. Highly recommended!!

        It’s great!
        I was a little skeptical getting this, I’d assume it wouldn’t work since my dad insisted I get some fancier one I’m super impressed. Got this to cover my kids playhouse before it rained so it wouldn’t get ruined. The water is pretty much repelled off it!

          Turned out orange
          Woodland cedar is the color we bought & it turned out burnt orange. We had to strip it all off. Very misleading color on the container. We made sure to follow the instructions as well.

            Worst piece of junk EVER!!!
            I purchased this spray to seal a few wooden armrests from some patio chairs that had been exposed to the elements for, I guess a few years. After thoroughly sanding the armrests, I decided to use this product to seal them and protect them from mother nature for the next few years. The product clearly indicates that it works on wood--as well as other surfaces! Boy, what a waste of money this product turned out to be! There's another Olympic spray that's made specifically for wood, but after reading several reviews indicating that the product "never" really dries, I decided to take a stab at this one and boy, what a huge mistake it was! After applying this spray on the wooden armrests (at 12" distance as indicated by the instructions), it left a nasty whitish film that stained my entire project! (See pictures). I ended up applying another product (TWP) with a paint brush, which is an excellent deck sealant, but it was able to cover the white stains left by this piece of junk! So not only did I end up wasting my money but my time too! I just wish that at least I could get the money I paid for this product back. Who knows, maybe it does a good job sealing concrete or other surfaces but definitely not wood. Bottom line: AVOID THIS PRODUCT ON WOOD SURFACES AT ALL COSTS!!!
