So far so good... in keeping my leaky storm shelter dry. It has not rained hard so I don't know for sure, but for light rain - it has held up. It took three 1 gallon cans of the Watertite paint to cover the floor and 3/4 of the walls in my storm shelter. My storm shelter is a concrete rectangle - about 5' by 6'. The paint goes on thick and it took about a week for my 'liberal' coating to dry. Another reviewer mentioned that the can's lid may pop off during shipment... but they have fixed that by installing a heavy duty plastic ring around the lid and can. You will need a heavy duty box cutter blade to cut through that plastic ring. The color is a nice white and there is little 'paint' odor. I've read that this version is 'stronger' than the latex version in keeping the water out. Hope this helps with your decision.

Review 2 for 1-gal. Watertite Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint-DISCONTINUED
Painted on some crumbling basement walls with 50 years of water soaking. Solidified the wall when dried. Nice hard coating and bonded well to bare block walls. Much better quality than the standard in-store latex basement wall paints, probably due to being an oil based product. If you are looking for a good quality wall sealant paint, this is a good choice.
Pros: High Quality of Material

Great product. As with any painting project, the key is in doing a thorough job with the prep work so that the sealant has a clean surface to bond do. I rented a Clark machine with a diamond-flap disk and spent 10 hours getting old goopy tile adhesive off the floor. Then I etched with a Behr concrete etchant product and did a lot of mopping. Then I applied the Zessner's waterproofing sealant. Each step was easier than the one before it. Applying the sealant was quick and easy and after 2 coats, the result was excellent. No more water-wicking concrete... ready for carpet in the basement.
Pros: Very Adhesive, High Quality of Material, Easy Instructions, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage

I purchased this to use as my base coat for all the walls and ceilings in the bathrooms and it covered fairly well. If you have popcorn ceilings, this isn't the product as it is fairly sticky and will likely remove some of the popcorn ceiling. Outside of that great coverage and great product.

Review 5 for 1-gal. Watertite Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint-DISCONTINUED
This product SEEMS to be doing what it was advertised to do....which is waterproof. It hasn't been on the walls a very long time yet.
I was having a terrible time with other products letting discoloration come through at the bottom of my basement walls, but so far no discoloration with this paint. It is a little difficult to apply, as it is thick and sort of "sticky" but if it works it is worth the extra effort in application.
One other thing....the can was crushed pretty badly on the bottom when it arrived but not leaking.

Review 6 for 1-gal. Watertite Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint-DISCONTINUED
Worked very well on my 50y old basement walls. Used about 12 gallons on a 400sf basement which was more than what I estimated, but inline with the 75-100sf per gallon as per the paint label. Second coat takes as much paint as the first. Buy it from store or get it shipped to store if you can. Both time I ordered from HD online with home delivery the package came badly damaged with paint spilled inside and dripping from the box - big mess and waste of paint.

Review 9 for 1-gal. Watertite Mildew Proof Waterproofing Paint-DISCONTINUED
This product has performed as labeled. It is some what sticky witch makes it a little toughf to apply but the coverage rate is better than listed, we got a 115 square fett as opposed to the 100 that the can listed. It filled in the pours in the block wall well with a second coat. All in all it has preformed well but we are still waiting for rain to see if it keeps the water out.

I can't say how well this product works because time will tell. I can say that it is difficult to apply at the recommended rate. You really have to lay the stuff on thick and it is very heavy. No odor and dries to a nice finish.
