The “New” Thompson’s Water Seal……

After years of treating my fence with Thompson’s Water Seal, it appears now that I will have to go another direction. I used to use my weed sprayer, load up the Thompson’s and spray away. Now, it’s that Elmer’s glue look alike stuff that come out of the weed sprayer in little beads, about the size of bb shots. Some of it runs, most of it globs. The lady who answered the phone at Thompson’s said that the VOC, whoever the heck that is, would not let them continue with the old formula. I can get me a high volume spray gun and the new stuff will work fine, she says. Only thing, I don’t want to buy a high volume spray gun. I want to use my weed sprayer. You say, why not roll it on, Mr. Hester….and I say, there is a chain link fence guarding the wood fence that will not allow this old fat boy in between them to roll. And any step ladder high enough to do the job to reach over to roll it,  is also of major concern to the fat boy. Does anyone know of a product, similar to Thompson’s that will work in a weed sprayer? If so, please hit comments at the bottom of this post and let me know it’s name. I sure would appreciate it.
