We have a new deck that we are sanding now but not sure what to do with the wood to protect it. Seal or stain and which brand do you all use?

I'm also moments away from starting the Hayward skimmer so pretty excited about this summer. Thanks to you all!

That works with chlorine or salt?

Also, do you have to sand and restain/seal every couple of years?

It will work with both, I have salt. As with any wooden deck covering you will need to maintain it every few years. I plan to power wash at the beginning of every season and re-coat in a few years. Send them a Facebook message and they will be glad to answer any questions you have about their products.
