Solvent based sealant
7 Jul 2014
By Brillll
, Southport
"Tried this as previous sealant was water based and was a waste of time. I applied with a large brush attached to a long handle and it went on easier than water, its absorption is obvious, spreading quickly and covers well. I tried this product on a test patch prior to rains last week and the run-off is good and it even enhances the colour of the block drive being covered. I have only given 4 stars for performance / reliability because I have only recently applied the sealant but would not expect to have future problems but time will tell. It dries to a matt finish which looks far better than a 'shiny drive.' It does not bind with the sand joints but being solvent based any roots or growth missed during preparation would be killed off, so should limit the re-occurrence of moss / weeds."

Patio Sealer
6 Jul 2014
By derek0444
, West Yorks
"Great product. Driveway resealed but as expected it took two coats. I did cheat and added a bit of wood stain (not varnish) to bring the colour back into the driveway bricks. It worked great and brought the colour back. Easy to apply with big brush. This is better than named brand
and better price having used both.

Can't go wrong
12 Jun 2014
By DIYertryingmybest
, Gloucestershire
"Bought this product after being advised by parents that the new Thompsons water sealant wasn't very good. Having read the reviews on here this seems to back up their view.
This product is great, goes on well with a brush and sprayer (I've used both on my fencing) and dries very quickly.
My only concern was the change in colour of the wood when using the product but these fears were ill founded - the next morning it was as if nothing had been put on it! Perfectly clear and the wood back to its original colour.
Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to buy again.
As to reliability I can't really comment, only time will tell."

It does the job.
22 Apr 2014
By Grockle
, Devon
"I have used Thompson's water seal over many years and was pleased with it. However I wasted money and time by buying the new "improved" formula.
It ran off wood and brick without being absorbed like the old liquid used to be.
I bought 4 cans of No Nonsense Water Repellent Seal Clear and it worked a treat, little run off and good absorption. After rain, the surface water formed beads and the material stayed dry.
I needed another can to finish the job but bought 4 more just in case the No Nonsense' formula is changed. I hope not!"

"Far better than Thompsons new water based product. This is like the old Thompsons that used to work so well until they ruined the formula.
So YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! Buy this 'no nonsense' product and save yourself a load of hassle!
Screwfix should be congratulated on sourcing this brilliant traditional water-proofer.

It did what it said it would.
30 Aug 2013
By upnorthgeorge
, Northumberland
"During heavy driving rain the inside of my single brick wall garage was running with water that was penetrating the brick.
I had used Thompson's Brick Sealent many years ago and it did a good job but the brick wall needed a recoat and after reading negative reviews about the 'new' water based Thompson's I decided to buy the solvent based 'No Nonsense' Brick Sealent.
It did what it said on the can and days after I applied it we had driving rain and the inside garage wall remained dry.

"Sprayed the whole bungalow and all the garden brick walls with this product. Water just beads off now when it rains. Best value product on the market in my eyes. Just need to be careful with over spray on windows and clean off immediately."

Very good product
6 Mar 2013
By Welshguy
, Merthyr Tydfil
"Very good, does exactly what its supposed to do.
It has the same consistency as water, so you will need to cover everything that you dont want to get sealer on.
The smell is quite strong and does linger for about 2 days, but its not any worse than a gloss paint."

Excellent Product
1 Dec 2012
By BillDL
, Hamilton
"I lined the walls of my bathroom with thick cement board (tile backer board) and bought this to waterproof the boards that were beneath the level of the bath and not covered with ceramic tiles. I first tested it on an offcut of the cement board, and was very impressed by the way this compound did not alter the appearance at all, and water just beaded on it and ran off. I will use this stuff in the Summer to coat the walls of my prefab garage. The turpentine odour isn't any more pungent than gloss paint. Be well aware that you will probably never be able to paint or stick anything onto the areas you coated. I haven't used any of the big brand name equivalents, and therefore cannot make a direct comparison other than on price which is ver good."

Repellent water sealer
1 Oct 2012
By Ringer
, London
"No Nonsence have a range of products, one of which is their clear water repellent sealer for exterior porous surfaces. Having used decking oil before, I find that this product performs the same function at half the price, without leaving an oily residue. Being clear it allows the natural wood colour to show whilst sealing it against the elements. The only downside I found was that ammounts of 500mls or so, if left for an hour during application, will set into a gel. This however can be reconstituted by adding a little fresh liquid. I used three applications on a bit of decking and water was shed off inclined surfaces after rain. All in all a good product at a good price."

Excellent water repellant
24 Aug 2012
By RockyRoadP
, Surrey
"This was an excellent water resistant primer and only needed 1 and a half cans to cover a new very large wooden workshop (5.5m x 4m) inside and out. The wood was untreated and this only required one coat, the rain just beaded off and pine remained completely dry. Was an excellent base coat for the Culprinol Shades Garden Paint and also stopped the pine knots bleeding through. Great value for money!!!"
