Well, first of all we can apply on wet pavers if we need to. We use Polysweep by SEK instead of the other brands. Because with that brand, you don't get any polymeric haze. Now, it cannot be actually raining when we apply it. But if the pavers are a little damp, no problem with the polysweep. It may get a little sticky on top of the pavers, but that comes off fairly easily. One guy on a broom, another guy on the hose with a light spray.

Second thing, we usually have a big propane tank torch on site and we'll dry off the patio with that before we apply the poly sand. First step is blow it off with a really strong backpack blower. Second step is the torch to dry it off the rest of the way. Takes maybe 30-60 minutes, depending on how big the patio is.

Hope that helps.
