I’m not too concerned about pump time or supplementing chlorine in the winter. I’m going with a filled travertine coping and a tumbled travertine deck. Do you think the sealing will be necessary?
Personally, I would not bother sealing the travertine. Once you do, it is something that you'll need to keep up with doing every few years. I am keeping mine all natural.

We picked out the travertine, but my wife found this picture and loves it. It looks to be more of a tile rather than a paver given grout. Does anyone have decking like this?

What a cold day! That didn’t stop them today. Plumbing is in and equipment set. They installed a cartridge filter instead of a DE. I’m waiting to hear back on that...
