It is not to keep the water out primarily. It is there to allow the deck

the movement will begin to crack and pop tiles like my pool did because it
wasn't built properly. I now have Deckoseal after $7500 worth of

Thanks for the link. I'm having a hard time deciding which is the
right choice though. Are these products suppose to be used before the
slab is poured? I was thinking of some sort of application via a gun,
similiar to caulk, would be what is required. Am I totally off?

If you have a Leslie's near you, they sell it in a can. I saw someone who
used it, and it shurnk. I don't know what he had as a foundation for the
seal. According to their web site, you are supposed to have backer rod
below the seal. He applied it with a bakers tube (don't know the proper
name, but the squeeze thing bakers use to put icing on cake).
Here's a better line, comes in tubes for a caulk gun. I am in the process
of pulling up 20 year old seal now.
I'm not sure where to buy it locally though. This page showes it comes in
cartons of 12. I'm only going to need about 2 tubes.
