Best deck stain for pool decks?

The best deck stain for pool decks is a semi-transparent or semi-solid penetrating deck stain. If you want the wood grain to show through opt for a semi-transparent penetrating deck stain. Penetrating deck stains soak into the fibers of the wood to seal it against moisture and protect it against the sun. Semi-transparent penetrating deck stains are best because they wear evenly and reapplication can easily be done in a day. Semi-solid penetrating deck stains do not soak into the wood as deeply but still protect it against sun and water. Choose a semi-solid penetrating pool deck stain when you want to hide the wood completely.
