TENT REPROOFING – HOW TO REPROOF A POLYESTER TENT

When you purchase your tent, it will have been treated with a PU coating which will keep it waterproof for a good while (usually a few years but this will depend on use). Therefore, you will not have to instantly carry out tent reproofing.

Some tents begin to lose their waterproof coating and develop some leaks so they will need tent reproofing.

If this happens, we recommend you treat your tent with Fabsil Gold Universal Protector.

TENT REPROOFING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pitch your tent on a dry day in a well ventilated area.
  • If required, clean your tent first with Fabsil Tent + Gear and leave to completely dry.
  • Apply Fabsil either with a brush or spray bottle directly to your tent. Apply it evenly all over.
  • Put extra Fabsil to seams and areas prone to abrasion.
  • For ultimate protection, allow to dry for as long as possible.
  • Wipe away any excess product with a clean cloth.
  • Allow to dry completely before use.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU REPROOF A TENT?

Although some people recommend you should reproof your tent on a schedule, we believe you should only reproof your tent if leaks begin to develop. Some tents will last a lifetime not being reproofed whereas some get a bit tired and start with little leaks after a few years.

How often you need to reproof your tent will depend on the quality of tent you purchase, how frequently you use your tent, how you store it and how gently you treat it. Tents should be looked after, stored and cared for. Once you have started to reproof your tent, you will usually need to continue to repeat the tent reproofing annually.

Happy tent reproofing!
