How To Open Your Thompson Water Sealer?
The first thing to do when you have to use your Thompson Water Sealer is to make sure it is not damaged or broken. If it is, then you will need to replace it.
You can buy a replacement at any hardware store (or online). However, if you don’t want to spend money on a new one, there are other ways of opening up your water sealer without spending too much time and effort.
First, you need to get rid of all the dust inside the container. There are several methods to accomplish this task.
One way is using a hair dryer. Another method is to put your hand over the top of the lid and blow out some air into it while simultaneously pressing down on it with your finger tips. A third method is to use a vacuum cleaner.
If you want to try something else, then you can also just throw away the container and start over again.
How To Use Your Thompson Water Sealer?
When you are ready to use your water sealer, simply place it into the bottle cap and screw on the cap tightly. Still another method is to use a vacuum cleaner.
Just remember that you need to keep blowing until the dust gets blown out of the container.
If you are really desperate, you could try using a screwdriver to pry open the top part of the container. Then, just push down on it with your foot and pull it off easily.
You may also want to consider getting a bottle opener so that you can open up your water sealer easier. Then, lay it on its side and start to pour in the water.
It should stop automatically. You now have a freshly filled water seal container!
How to apply your Thompson Water Sealer with the sprayer?
The first thing you need to do is prepare all of your materials and tools. Just like your Thompson water sealer, you will need to prepare a sprayer as well.
How To Apply Your Thompson’s Water Seal?
If you want to make sure that your Thompson’s WaterSeal lasts for a long time, then you should first prepare the area where you are going to apply it. The most important thing is to make sure that you have a clean surface.
This is especially true if you are sealing wooden decks, fence, or siding. Be sure to wash it with water before using it. The best way to do this is by hand.
Next, fill the sprayer up with Thompson’s Water Seal. Make sure you do not overfill the container because this can cause leaking or other problems once the container gets pressed against a surface.
If any dirt or dust gets into the sprayer, it can clog the opening and prevent the sealer from coming out.
Now you need to apply the sealer as evenly and thinly as you can. This will make the surface more resistant to moisture in the long term.
You can tell that it is sealed once the color changes from orange (or whatever color it naturally is) to a dark brown or black (depending on what you are sealing).
You can also buy a sprayer attachment for your garden hose. With this, you can use your garden hose to apply the water seal.
Next, pull the sealer trigger upward to lock it into place. Then, hold the container at a slight angle and begin to apply Thompson’s WaterSeal to the surface where you want to protect.
Make sure you cover all of the wood or other material you want to protect.
Once you are finished, go over the entire area once again. This will ensure that the seal has adhered properly to the surface of the wood or material.
If you want to apply Thompson’s WaterSeal to a large area, then you need to use a sprayer. You can either buy one or make one yourself.
If you decide to make one, then you need a plastic bottle that has a button trigger on the top.
The most important thing is to make sure the bottle is clean and dry before you fill it with Thompson’s WaterSeal. Otherwise, the water seal will become diluted if any dust, dirt, or other debris falls into the container.
Once you have a clean and dry sprayer, fill it up directly from the Thompson’s WaterSeal container. If you need to store the seal for future use, then be sure to keep it in a closed and air-tight container.
