    Just pressure washed my pressure treated deck this weekend. I like how the pressure treated wood looks when its wet and clean. Anyone have a good suggestion on a sealer or stain?

    All I can offer is, the more translucent the stain, the better it penetrates and holds. The more solid, the less penetration, and be ready for it to peel off in big chunks within a year or two. Get yourself a transparent or semi transparent stain/sealer and save yourself some headaches. Personally, I'd clean it and leave it, easier to refresh in a few years by just pressure washing

    Use stand oil, it will give the wood a “wet” look, penetrates deeply and doesn’t peel off. It takes a few days to dry and it stinks, but can keep wood as good as new for generations if applied every other year.

    I have good luck with Sikkens translucent. About $50 a gallon, but covers very well and keeps the deck looking nice.
