    Nice job. After cured use deck stain.

    Use an oil based semi transparent stain for pressure treated wood. The oil based stain will soak into the wood and should not peel or bubble like deck products that go on like a paint and just sit on top of the wood. If you use an oil based semi transparent stain you should only have to clean and redo your deck about every 3-4 years depending on the weather that affects the stain. If you just recently constructed this deck I would wait until next year for the wood to completely dry and shrink. It will be fine for one year without any stain on it. I would NOT do it before a year or otherwise the oil based stain will not soak in well. You will be surprised how much the wood will shrink in a year and dry out.

    Yes, treated lumber or not, it must finish curing for at least 3 months and be dry when applying the stain.
