|We keep our bimini in place all winter with a full enclosure for extra room--the |
windows make it like a greenhouse. If we have water leaks from rain or
snow, we really couldn't use the extra space very effectively.
There are at least 3 companies who produce products to restore the water repellency to Sunbrella: MaryKate, Starbrite, and 303 Products.
|We chose 303 Fabric Guard because it is recommended |
by Sunbrella, the manufacturer of the fabric.
|I sprayed the Fabric Guard onto the bimini until it looked wet in the area--it |
soaked into the fabric very well. I lifted each solar panel to apply
the Fabric Guard under the solar panels.
|This is a close up view of how the rainwater beads up on the Sunbrella after |
using the 303 Fabric Guard. This photo was taken about
three weeks after application.
