Since I will be using a SWG system, I plan to seal the Travertine coping and pavers. From what I can find online, Dry-Treat sounds like the best sealer for what I need. Also, when I was looking at the stone place, I ran into another pool owner just getting ready to put in the same coping and pavers as we will be using. He's in the concrete business, and said the only brand he will use for his pool stonework is Dry-Treat. He said they use it to protect all their concrete work, and it is the only brand that won't eventually turn yellow. I know that's not expert research, but it sounds good to me.
The guy who will install our Travertine pavers said it is not necessary to seal it, but already I've gotten a few small stains on the coping, and we don't even have water in the pool yet! So I want to take the more cautious route and seal it all.
Because of the current issues with the site, I'm having a huge struggle trying to research the site. So I'm hoping someone will see this thread who has experience and can be able to post.
What is the best way to apply?
Is there a better time of day or outdoor temperature to consider when applying?
How many coats if more than 1?
What tricks did you learn that worked for you?
FYI: if you live in the NW Houston/Woodlands area, I found a good price for Dry-Treat 40SK. MCA Systems in Tomball sells it for $198 a gallon. Their number is 281-255-4622.
Today on Amazon, it's going for $245 a gallon (free shipping) and MasterTile sells it for $238.09 a gallon. Every little bit helps, right?! Thanks for any suggestions and tips you can share! Suz.
