Default Sealer/Resin for an outside slate table

It always amazes me the wealth of knowledge and the non boating questions on THT. So here goes.

I have an 8'X8' patio table that is always in the weather. When I got it I carefully sealed the top and grout.

Now in less then a year water has gotten through the grout.

I am considering putting a top coating(resin etc) that you might see in a bar but many of those warn of yellowing and that they are not for outside use.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We used a product called "bulletproof" iirc. Came from the supplier of our countertops and slate tile. Has to be reapplied every few years but works great.

Sealing it might cause more issues then leaving it bear.

I have used this in a number of applications, it might work for yours... http://www.homedepot.com/p/Miracle-S...QT-H/100076375

I have a slight bit less than a gallon of stuff that they use for shrimp nets to keep from drying out and cracking. Put it on my PT wood steps that were stained and the stain lasted a few years longer than otherwise.

not a cure-all, but much better than anything else we tried.

Try you local shrimp net supplier, or buy mine for $40 including shipping. I no longer live on the beach.

I recently bought some Permalac for a metal and wood project that I am building, I have not used it before but have advice from others that I trust their opinion that it works well.
Here is a link to their website, I bought it on Amazon.

Have a good one \.

Thanks, I think water has gotten through the grout to the wood. I think my plan is to encapsulate the whole top.
Some of the slate is starting to lift, it is an expensive table that we love and am trying to save it.
When I first got it I used this to supposedly seal it which did not work, http://www.agiopatiocare.com/product...cat=255&page=1
$100 bucks for nothing.

Please keep the ideas coming.
