Sealing pool deck pavers is a critical step when it comes to intensifying the color of the pavers and preventing staining that naturally occurs from dirt and debris.

Step 1 - Prepare the Pool Deck Pavers

Before you can apply sealer to the pool deck pavers, you need to prepare the area by removing any patio furniture or outdoor d├ęcor. Thoroughly sweep the pool pavers to remove dirt, leaves and other debris that may be on the surface. To remove tougher stains, use a pressure washer. Allow the area to thoroughly dry.

Step 2 - Prepare the Sealer

Gather the necessary supplies for sealing the pool deck pavers. In the bucket, mix 1 qt. of xylene with 2 1/2 gallons of sealant. By incorporating xylene with the sealer as a thinning agent, you can ensure all parts of the pavers are covered. In addition, xylene will help the sealant dry faster.

Step 3 - Apply the Sealer

With the paint roller, apply a thin layer of the xylene-and-sealer mixture to the pool deck pavers. Allow this to dry thoroughly. Using sealer only, apply a second coat to lock in the top coat of sealer and add a glossy finish to the pool deck pavers. Allow the sealer to dry thoroughly, which could take up to 2 days.
