I more than likely will stop using this product. Due to the fact that Olympic evidently will be discontinuing the metal cans. I’ve seen the new plastic containers there using for there new surplus and there prices are through the roof. Evidently plastic costs more than the metal containers.

The secret to using this product, is to put it in a spray bottle when applying. I did a 10’x20’ deck, and still have product left over. Is holding up quite well. I reapply over spots I covered too thinly. Would definitely buy again.

What I like about this stain is that it doesn’t smell like a petroleum product. Unfortunately, it doesn’t perform like a petroleum product either. It goes on fine, but not as well as the oil based stains. Good price and seems to repel water pretty well, so I’ll keep using it.

I shaked the can for a few minutes before the first use. The color is as expected. On the second day, I shaked the can for about 1 minute because it was half empty. The color is unexpected red. My deck is now obviously in "two tone".

The stain is fantastic I stained part of my fence about a year ago and it looks the same today as it did then so I finished the remaining 200 feet and it looks exactly the same.

I purchased the Thompson Red Sequoia from HD for my fence, then later had to replace a few slats, but HD no longer carried the Thompson, so had to get the Olympic. Same color, but it didn't match, may have to apply several coats to try to match it.

The product works well on wood decks and even better if applying a clear coat of the product on wood fence. I have a wood fence that has lasted me over 20 years and only replaced due to a tree falling on it.

Three coats didn't make it one winter
I put three coats on my deck of this at the end of fall. I scrubbed it down with a deck cleaner beforehand and gave it plenty of time to dry. Now the next spring it's already chipping everywhere. I'm going to have to paint it again which is ridiculous because I spent so much time doing it last year. Horrible product.

    I liked the product. The colour is maybe a little red/oranger than I needed, but it made the deck look much better and will hopefully protect it against future weather.

    I would have given it 5 stars had my local Home Depot had a 1 gallon can paint shaker to properly mix the stain base (sludge) with the fluid in the can. Plastic seal ring requires a pliers or screwdriver to remove.

    Did what it was supposed to and was easy to use. Went on very pale initially but darkened up some with drying - but not too dark - pleasing.
