    Has anyone used this stone sealer for a salt water pool?

    We are currently building our pool and have decided to do the dreaded combination of flagstone with a salt water pool. We are hoping to seal the stone yearly. Has anyone used this sealer and if so, what were your results. If not this one, is there any other sealers you have had good success with.

    We are planning to also put a coat of Dupont's Stonetech Bulletproof Stone Sealer additionally on the stone.

    Thanks for any input!

    Hi Joe,
    several folks on this forum have used this dupont product with very good reviews. I personally dont have any experience with it, but its popular.
    Like any sealer though, it will perioidically have to be reapplied. How long between depends on too many variables, but worse case, every 2 or 3 years.
