Re: Waterproofing Sunbrella

Oooopaies....

I had some Thompson Water Seal left over from my last treatment and applied it to about half our bimini. I broke out the NEW can of Thompsons Water Seal and it is obviously DIFFERENT. WATER BASED. White color.

So I went ahead and finished the Bimini with the new stuff. Looks damn odd.

Reviews say the new stuff isn't as good as the old. Guess I'm the guy for the test.

The cans look identical except for some lawyering text that says it cleans up with water.

I would like to hear others opinions.

Re: Waterproofing Sunbrella

It's official ..... The NEW Thompsons Water Seal does not perform well compared to the old, it well at all.

Need an alternative.
