Dido on the year wait

Deck sealer will work fine. You will most likly need to reseal it every summer though. Thomson deck sealer isn't the best on the market, just the most advertized. I recommend to my costumers to go a paint store and buy a good quality sealer. Paint stores carry way better products than your local lumberyard.

Presure treated wood starts out kiln dried to a low moisture content then submerged in a tank of chemicals and pressurized to 20 or 40 psi for an extended amout of time. Basicly the wood absorbe the chemical to the core. In the warmer climates you can seal the treated wood a little sooner than a year. But up north in the colder climates I would think it would take a year or more.
