Well, you need to get the sealer to the asphalt. Some guys build a sealer wheeler that holds 15-20 gal for bigger jobs. When I broom, I let my wand dump out 5 gal for me. My nephew made a 3 bucket wheeler for supplying his dad with sealer. Now he can spend more time resting in the shade.

Hi Guy's
I could be very wrong but a guy from down in the States called me here in Canada that had seen my web site and wanted to chat. We were talking and he said that he use to seal but now there was a ban on the product that he was spraying I can't remember to product but that mite be your problem maybe call and see if that is your case. Look around maybe try the phone book and call a sealer and find out what they are using and track it down.

Nice post on NPCA. That should help. You may have to drive aways but Iam sure you will find someone to sell you sealer. The more gal they buy the lower the price is for them. Some guys dont like to see new sealer guys in there area. Go thru phone books of the surrounding areas. Just rember, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
