Best product for rewaterproofing cratch cover

Featured Posts

hello my cratch cover is leaking the water soaks right through and also drips along the seams.

 

 

It is a canvas cover 

 

What is the best product to re waterproof it??

Fabsil or Fabsil Gold, applied by brush (dont use the spray cans) I prefer the gold.

Its the best by miles.

One litre will be more than enough.

Not cheap but you get what you pay for

Seconded.

 

Then use Wet and Forget annually to stop the green stuff growing on it.

thirded. or use Kinver canopies algae zapper to kill the algae.

 

I have some of that its good stuff for getting rid of green stuff, however it doesn't waterproof. Also Patio Magic works just as well at getting rid of green stuff and has the edge on price ;)

I'll put in a vote for that as well, also waterproofs coats pretty well.

 

Once cleaned I use this (https://iosso.com/clean/products/mold-mildew-stain-remover/) as recommended by Cratch Covers and Canopies in Nantwich, it has been brilliant. Sadly I've only been able to source it through the evil Amazon:(

Wholeheartedly agree. Wet and Forget works. Not cheap.

It is also seriously lethal to marine life long term.

So best used away fron the water.

I suspect these will both contain Benzalkonium Chloride - if you've seen what it does to grass or moss even as a 5% solution you'll want to keep it away from the water.

That was the reason the Nantwich Cratch cover maker recommended Iosso (see above) as it is allegedly harmless to marine environments.

Both Patio Magic and Algae Zapper have warnings on them not to use near watercourses.

I did my cover infront of my garage at home. Easier than on the boat.
