Sealing patio pavers?

I have noticed that the paver patio around my pool and the walkways leading up to it have lost some 'luster'. A neighbor has recommended that I have the pavers sealed. What are the pros and cons to this? If it is good to seal it what kind/brand would you recommend?

Pros:

Revives the color.

Protects the pavers.

Cons:

Once sealed, it becomes a maintenance item, like painting.

Could be slippery when wet.

Done incorrectly it could be worse than it is now.


My suggestion would be to rent a power washer, and use a fan tip and a detergent solution to clean them.
