I would use a semi-transparent stain or a clear sealer if you like the look and color of the pressure treated wood. Just remember whichever you choose is a regular maintenance chore you should schedule.

What you should not use is Thompson's or anything else wax based for moisture repulsion.

Has your pressure treated wood aged enough you can stain or seal it?

this is important and is often overlooked. Many people think it is a one time thing. ALL products will need to be reapplied. Usually every 2 years
