    I never use an FSC on lockblock, your machine aint powerful enough too run an FSC effectively, I always use turbo nozzle on lockblock,

    Its an acrylic sealer Belfast, it makes the sand go like a silicone which allows the block to naturally contract and expand as normal and prevents weeds from growing through from underneath, used by lots off airports , councils etc, damn good swag but not cheap, Its called RESIBLOCK , google it,other acrylics are available but thyis is the best on market. The block will still get dirty but next time you powerwash there is no weeds and no sand loss , cracking stuff!!!!!!!11

    yep that's the stuff, quality but damn expensive, you can get cheaper sealers from Smartseal and Advanced Sealing Solutions just google either, they are good but no as good as Resiblock

    if you try a farmers co op they should stock chloras , its great for getting rid of the algae , i usually mix it half water half chloras and spray the area then scrub with a deck brush and leave and let the rain wash it away
