Got the last gallon. Must be a popular color or the sale they were having was a good one. Satisfied with the color. The protection I guess will see. For my project I brushed on this product. If I was going to use on a fence or deck I would spray it or roll it on to ensure the product is evenly coated and spread over the surface. Overall satisfied with this product.

It was on clearance so cheap that I bought it. I am saving it for spring weather, What I bought is clear not brown. Either would work for me.

Too expensive for a basic outdoor wood fence paint product.

There was no directions for how to apply the product. I emailed the company and still have not receive instruction on how to apply the product. So no I am not happy with your representation of product

Looks great a couple years later ...
On my 8' x 32' deck balusters, about 100 of them. Ripped 2x3s to make my own balusters. Sanded down to 240. Applied one thin coat, which I wipe off with a rag. Let cure overnight. Apply 2nd thin coat, again, immediately wiping off with a rag. Let cure overnight. Result? A nice smooth, satiny shine that looks natural and has lasted two years and looks brand new. How do I wash the deck and balusters? I use car wash, the kind that (1) has no wax and (2) will not remove wax.

    My experience was bad, and I have returned the product. I told the person helping me that I needed a brush on, non-toxic waterproof sealant and he sold me this product. When I got it home, I read the label and then looked it up online and it cannot be used for a non-toxic, vegetable flower box. That is what I needed. When I returned it, I was told that the products online are not in the store and that there was no non-toxic waterproof sealant in the store.

    Extremely slippery .
    If you want a sealer that doesn't soak into the wood, this is it ! When it rains it makes puddles that you have to sweep off with a broom or risk your neck trying to walk across your deck because it's so slippery. A little bit of snow I tried to shovel off ended with me slipping and falling and spraining my wrist. I would like someone to tell me how to strip this hazardous sealer off my deck.

      This is the second can of Olympic water guard that I've bought in the last two months. I was used to the other major brands that I was used too and was skeptical about switched brands. I tried the first can and it works great. I applied it twice on the wood bench I had bought and it is working great.

      Came in to buy Thompsons Water Seal but HD doesn't carry it apparently. Bought this stuff with more than a little skepticism. Works GREAT!! Love the complete seal--so much so that I could only put ONE coat on the wood--it was sealed after that and wouldn't accept another coat...Good Stuff!

      I am pretty happy with the product. This is no one's fault, but the color is more orange that I expected.

      Have used it for 10 years on covered and uncovered porch. Use it every year on uncovered part, about ever 3 years on covered. Easy to apply.

      Great product and easy to use. Just didn't need such a large size but I can save the rest for future jobs.

      Nice color. Waiting for winter to see how it holds to the weather.

      Worked for a couple of weeks
      I was initially very pleased with this. It went on easily and the first rainfall after it dried beaded right up just like in the product photos. Unfortunately, it only lasted for a couple of weeks. I applied this back in August, and by September the deck was already growing mildew again. Don't waste your time or money on this.
