I researched a lot of stains, this seemed to have good reviews and the color was true brown, not tinted orange that other stains seemed to be, we LOVED the color. I ordered 25 gallons to do 300 ft x 6ft pressure treated fence on one side, intended to do 2 coats, didn't because I used way too much at first, I used 23 gallons for the entire project. I might do another coat, will need far less now I have the application process down.
I waited almost 2 months for the pressure treated pine to to dry out, ReadySeal site recommend moisture is below 12%, and I bought a Ryobi Moisture meter so I could monitor it drying out, cool little $30 tool from Home Depot. When it was 10-11% or less, I cleaned the fence with a hose, all it had was dirt the rain splashed up on the bottom of it, then waited a day for it to dry. You can apply with a pump sprayer, but I used a Graco airless X5 sprayer with a 211 tip, important to note the tip size, it really help not wasting stain compared to the 311 and 411 tips. When applying, I did the front gate, and saturated the fence trying to get a dark color, ended up with a pile of stain at the bottom of the fence, was wasteful on my part but it came out darker.
When doing my backyard, I didn't want bleed through on my four neighbors sides (was being considerate), I will eventually apply a clear sealant on their sides. A pump sprayer applied it too thick and ran through the board on board fence, between boards and every knot, so a good, multiple light coat with the airless sprayer worked well for me. Doing it this way, there was very little noticeable bleed through on their side if any, it is a bit lighter than the gate where I applied it to where it was saturated with a pump sprayer, but it's hardly noticable. If doing both sides, a pump sprayer would be a cheaper, better alternative I think but the Airless sprayer made it quick to do, prevented bleed through, and was REALLY quick. It just provided me the control I was looking for since I was really concerned about it bleeding through the fence, probably a unique concern.
I've done a lot of staining, and this was the easiest stain I've ever applied. Exceptionally happy, hopefully it last 3-5 years without needing to reapply.
