Default floor sealant?

hi all, spot of bother with a tiled balcony. its leaking when theres heavy rain, and i'm looking for a simple clear tile sealer. anyone used such a product that they could give me a name?
i've tried a liquid plastic coat which was terrible, came out of the tin a whiteish colour, looked terrible when on the tiles and felt 'tacky' to walk on (even after a week) whereas i'm wanting something thats totally clear and should brush on as easy as water - such as thompsons block paving seal which has been recommended by a friend back in the uk.

Default Re: floor sealant?

Is not the Thompson product you are talking about only seal blocks so that moss and other things do not grow and damage the surface of the paving?
Our answer would be to break off the tiles and use a layer of waterproof cement or membrane of mastic and lay new tiles on top.
But that is expensive and time consuming!

re- thompsons, i dont know, its what was recommended by a friend back in the uk who owns a hardware store. what its 'meant' to do is give waterproof covering to any surfaces that may be even slightly porous.
the real opton,as you suggest, is just not possible at this time. i spoke to a neighbour who reckons due to age, the original membrane is shot, but reckons that the seal covering will do the job short to mid term.
thnk i'll go seal hunting with my dictionary!

This type of sealant is available in Spain but i do not know any trade names. My builder is using it on our Solaria and the terraces above the basements. If you can't find one come back and I will ask for the name.
