Thompson's WaterSeal Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer?

How often do I use Thompson's WaterSeal Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer on the patio cement to seal it?

A lot depends on the weather it sees. TWS can wear away in as little as 3-6 months or last for a little over 1 yr. Basically if it beads water it is still there and working.

Can I use the sealer on the patio cement every summer time? Is it ok?

Every summer is probably fine but if it isn't, it's likely because that is not often enough. The knock against Thompson's is it wears away very quickly.

Shouldn't be a problem although the better the patio is sealed the slicker it's apt to be when wet.

The other issue you may have is whether or not the Thompson's sticks effectively in all areas (especially the low use areas). I have patterned concrete and I've found that using the builders sealer (with sand for grip) is a much better option than using the cheaper Thompsons stuff. You can buy it at local supply stores but it isn't cheap. Here in Canada, a 5 gallon pail runs around $250 but it will last for 3 years+ on patio, 2 years on a driveway.

I was going to say... it would work ok if you applied it once a week. ;-)

BASF makes several good conrete sealers, I would recommend you put your money into something that works... not a cheap substitute.
